About Agreena
Agreena is an exciting, dynamic, and purpose-oriented organisation united in a mission to mobilise farmers and corporations to unlock the value of nature and help restore the planet. While we’re rooted in agriculture, finance, and technology, our team of experts range from soil carbon scientists and software developers to market strategists and regulatory affairs experts. Over 230 employees across more than 40 nationalities are gathered under the common Agreena flag – either working from our headquarters in Copenhagen, offices in London, or remotely across Europe.

As a rapidly scaling climate agtech, Agreena provides solutions that drive both environmental and financial sustainability in farming. We have helped farmers across 18 countries in their conversion journey from conventional agriculture to regenerative farming practices to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and remove CO2 from the atmosphere, storing it in soil. Our company offers a supportive and positive work environment with opportunities for learning, leading and growth no matter where you are in your professional journey. We believe in giving our employees a lot of responsibility, and we encourage new thinking, innovation and fun.

And this is where you come in:
We are looking for a Head of Accounting & Controlling that can lead a stellar Accounting & Controlling team and elevate the team to the next level, as our current Head of Accounting & Controlling is embarking on an exciting new journey. The role has a global responsibility and will be integral in supporting Agreena on its continued growth journey. The right candidate is a strong people leader with a background in accounting and a proven track record from a similar leadership role.

The Accounting & Controlling team has grown with Agreena and consists of three controllers (in Copenhagen and London) and an accountant. The team is running the day-to-day management of Agreena’s finances including monthly close, VAT, tax, transfer pricing and liquidity management while at the same time supporting the Head of Accounting & Controlling on several key projects such as having implemented a new ERP system (Microsoft Dynamics F&O), annual audit reporting and ad-hoc requests and dialogues requests and setting up new legal entities in several new jurisdictions to support Agreena’s international growth.

Your primary responsibility will be to lead and develop the Accounting & Controlling team, ensuring an inspirational workplace, a strong learning environment with quality deliveries and taking responsibility for many strategic projects to support Agreena’s continued growth.

For this role we are expecting a person to be located in Copenhagen or the surrounding area, as it is a hybrid role, working from our Copenhagen office a few days per week.
