And to top it off you will be based right in the heart of Singapore, in Suntec City. 

What is in it for you
As our future colleague and Shipping Accountant, you will make a profound impact when operational data is translated into financial data. This includes making sure that our accounting system is carefully maintained and contains accurate data, which is especially fundamental for further use by different stakeholders.

To get the job done, you are not alone. You will take part in a great global team and work in especially close collaboration with your 5 team members from the local accounting team in Singapore but also with teams located in our Denmark and Cyprus offices. All working around the shared aim of ensuring NORDEN’s quality service to our customers.

The team
The voyage accounting team is the final receiver of all transactions in the operational system related to the shipping of dry and tanker vessels. The day-to-day revolves around accounting for these transactions and new business and incorrect entries and their impact. The team dynamic is important, and it is vital that you can see yourself in informal sessions of collaboration, sparring, and honest feedback which already are characteristics the team upholds.

In general, NORDEN is characterized by the combination of a long history, proud traditions, an ever-changing & welcoming culture, and a flat structure with a focus on personal development.

  • Reconciliations of voyage-related accounts.

  • Review of voyage results for accuracy & adjustments.
