Are you strong in financial accounting with enough experience (3 – 5 years) to take care of our finances and financial statements? We are a Dutch scale-up company, expanding abroad and growing. Are you able to administer our local operation financially and think along with our foreign challenges?

DutchChannels is a subscription based video-on-demand platform based in Hilversum, The Netherlands. We are specialized in niches with our so called special-interest channels. Our fast growing channels are New Faith Network and WithLove. We launched our first platform in 2017 in The Netherlands. We are currently active in 8 countries: NL, BE, UK, IE, AU, NZ, NO and SE and entertaining almost 100.000 users.

With the growth of our number of subscribers of video-on-demand services and expansion abroad, the activity with regard to our financial operation rises. Imagine: 100K users who pay monthly, quarterly, yearly. Although we use payment service providers, it all needs to be managed correctly in total, per country and per subscriber, also with the various VAT-rates in mind.

Our current financial team consists of a Finance Director, Controller CRR (Contract Rights Renewal) and two financial accountants/bookkeepers in temp roles. Next to these colleagues, analysts of the quantitative department help out to work the numbers!

Vacancy Head of Finance medior level (f/m/x)


You, as our new Head of Finance medior level, will be working in close cooperation with the finance team in an independent role with sole responsibility for the financial and statutory accounting.

Your main responsibility is the correct financial accounting on holding level of our full operation. The Controller CRR did it before you, and even the Finance Director worked on streamlining the finances, so enough experience and knowing what it is about, should you have questions, is available.

Financial & statutory accounting

Next to the financial accounting, you report on monthly, quarterly and yearly basis. By year ending, you close the books and together with our external accountant you prepare the formal financial statements and do all statutory reporting, including tax returns.


Based on your experience and what you see within DutchChannels, you make suggestions for improvement of our financial operation and implement them if possible. This is not limited to purely finance only.

Also, in the cashflow planning and budgeting, you play an important role. Amongst others you liaise with other teams, for example the content and marketing team, to help and guide them with their budgeting and forecasting. And if they cannot check the balances, you try to find solutions. With your smart thinking and financial mind – and their creativity – more can be done then one thinks.

What we ask of you

Preferably 3 – 5 years accounting experience. You are able to do the statutory accounting yourself, albeit sometimes in consultation with the Finance Director and the external accountant.

You are strong in numbers, have already some experience with cashflow planning and budgeting. You are smart and analytical and able to deduce huge amounts of information (of 100K users) to ballpark figures.

You are a self starter and do not lose yourself in details without overseeing them. You are original in thinking and have the ability to think outside the financial box.

What we offer you

Freedom and responsibility. We offer trust in what you do and are able to. DutchChannels is dynamic: we see chances and opportunities. We examine and decide thoughtfully. You can be part of this and become valuable in our maturing. We offer growth in responsibility with the growing of our company. Maybe also managing junior accountants if there is ‘leadership’ in you.

But most of all: at DutchChannels we believe in what we do. With believe comes enthusiasm. That is why we made it from start-up to scale-up and now going to the next stage. Are you in?
