We are seeking a part-time student job in accounting to join our team in Copenhagen and Svinninge.

Internship · To Øl HQ

We are looking for a talented Accounting-focused student for our finance function who supports the entire organization with day-to-day bookkeeping, recording cash transactions, performing bank reconciliations, and other critical financial tasks.

Who is To Øl?

To Øl is a young Danish craft brewery founded in 2010. We are striving to deliver the highest quality beer and get it into the hands of people in the most sustainable way. In 2019, we acquired the old Beauvais factory in Svinninge, where we established a modern brewery. We brew a wide range of different beers, and our commitment to quality and innovation has enabled us to export our products to more than 31 countries.

Our team consists of over 50 dedicated people with different skills from 23 countries. We have different backgrounds, life stories and areas of expertise — and we love this diversity because we believe it makes our work and products better.

What does this role involve?

We are searching for an Accounting-focused student to perform the day-to-day bookkeeping tasks, as a critical support role of the finance function and overall organization. Key responsibilities include:

  • Recording cash transactions within the ERP system
  • Performing bank reconciliations

  • Supplier and customer account statement reconciliation
  • Month-end-close task completion, as outlined in a checklist

You will work with one other accountant, and you will report directly to our Head of Finance, James Parsons.

The position will be considered for both applicants in Copenhagen or Svinninge.

This position requires 15-20 hours per week, potentially more depending on your availability. 

You will thrive in this role if you:

  • Work well with teams of co-workers and partners, with a focus on team collaboration.

  • Constantly seek new knowledge and lead with curiosity.
  • Stay self-motivated and disciplined to take ownership of tasks.
  • Are results-oriented and enjoy completing goal-oriented tasks.
  • Keep organized and pay attention to details.

Your qualifications

  • You have completed, or are in the final year of, your bachelors degree with a focus on accounting and/or finance. Masters students are also encouraged to apply.

  • General understanding of accounting, such as understanding debits, credits, and performing reconciliations, as well as strong proficiency in Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets.
  • Excellence in task management and task completion, as the daily bookkeeping and month-end close responsibilities in a timely manner are critical in running the business.
  • Familiarity with Google Workspace and Slack. Additionally, familiarity with SAP is a strong plus but not required.
  • Outstanding verbal and written communication skills.
  • Professional fluency in English.

What we offer

  • Individual development plans

  • Seasonal celebrations and team activities
  • Diverse hands-on experience within bookkeeping, accounting, and controlling.
