Charlotte Jessen, Junior Business Controller

WHAT I DO

At DC, I work as a Junior Business Controller, where I process large data sets and help optimise processes. My primary task is to help develop and maintain tools used in Finance & Accounting by using VBA and SQL. Moreover, I am also responsible for creating monthly settlements for some of our customers.

MY TYPICAL WORK DAY

In a typical work day, I work on optimising a process, using different coding languages along with Excel. Some days, I also validate data used for settlement along with creating a customer specification of the settlement. And of course, a typical workday entails a good cup of coffee as well!
