about the role

Jose Salazar, COO and Lindsay Clerkx, HR Director:


Lindsay: “OMRON’s mission is to improve the quality of the lives of our customers and have an impact on the society. Our company has an exceptionally open, transparent and respectful culture and we can offer our employees an inspiring international environment. The coming years we want to achieve sustainable long-term growth. We have the interesting challenge to step into new markets such as adding value added services to complement our devices. These challenges provide numerous opportunities to give financial insight on business scenario’s for our new Finance Director. Our new finance colleague will play an important role in finding and assessing these business opportunities.”


Jose: “In this challenging role as a Finance Director you will lead our finance team. Collaboration with other departments, like supply chain and IT, but also with other entities within the company needs to get attention. Probably the biggest challenge is to be a key contributor to the development and execution of the business strategy with the aim to maximize the organization’s sustainable growth and profitability. On the other hand I like to see a new Finance Director who is commercially minded and helps us to grow the business, I am looking for a value adding finance strategy. Just providing insight in the cases won’t be enough, someone who comes up with proposals how to solve problems and extend our business based on analysis is crucial in this position. A final key topic that our Finance Director needs to keep in mind is compliance, it is extremely important for our company that we follow the international financial rules.”

Candidate profile

Jose: ”My ideal candidate is an entrepreneurial strategic thinker with a proactive hands-on attitude.  A certain level of organizational and cultural sensitivity is required to understand the boundaries of what can be said and done. We are looking for a candidate with experience in an international environment and who understands how to cope with different cultures.”

Lindsay: ”A candidate with experience in accounting and control and managerial experience matches our basic criteria. Our ideal match with this vacancy knows how to act as business partner for the Management team and in particular Jose. Our new Finance Director works closely together with the decision-makers of our international market leading company. This will make you learn fast about managing an international business and business development. Impact can made easily and you will be visible for our international senior management. It is an ambition of our company to have more international exchange of our people. If you aspire international career steps, this is the place to be.”
