Focus subject Finance/Controlling

Here, it’s all about figures: The Controlling division at CLAAS uses them to collect, interpret and generate recommendations of action for the mangement. This guarantees economically viable decisions and the efficient use of resources. The Controlling division supports and coordinates the planning, budgeting and decision-making process and is responsible for budget compliance. Due to the increasing internationality of CLAAS, more and more new, exciting fields are opening up.

The Export Financing and Credit Management Department, for example, supports almost all aspects of financing issues which support sales. Structured financing for our customers in emerging markets is one aspect of this field, as well as the management of credit risks in international business.

The International Trainee Programme in the Finance/Controlling division consists of various mandatory assignments at CLAAS: one assignment in the Accounting division, another one in Controlling and one assignment in a closely-related field such as Purchasing, Sales, Quality Management or Product Management. Furthermore, you will be deployed at our headquarters at least once, as well as in one of our subsidiaries.

This sets you apart from others:

You analyse quickly, are committed to your work and persistent in your achievement for targets at all times. Global thinking, personal initiative and a high level of international mobility are a matter of importance to you.

    Approach:

    • Analysis of the current report
    • Development of a new concept with specific content

    • Development of an Excel template for the report
    • Design concept for a clear layout
    • Development of an overview slide with the most important data
