Finance and Business Control

The economic perspective is crucial for running an efficient organisation. Scania’s finance organisation actively supports the whole company and is involved in all parts of the business, playing a key role in daily operations.

Employees within financial services work in a broad range of areas, including accounting, financial controlling, finance and credit analysis. They have a range of specialisations and can be found in the company’s operations across the world. The job of finance employees is to provide an economic perspective throughout all processes, from product development to delivering the finished product and providing services. Employees within this area have an opportunity to influence decisions within their various areas and contribute to the sustainability of Scania, both as company and as an employer. In other words they enable better business.

The area suits those who are methodical and team players. Employees work cross-functionally to achieve a holistic perspective and look out for Scania’s best interests in the long-term. Finance professionals can work both at head office and within the wider Scania organisation, meaning they have great opportunities for personal development worldwide.
