WHAT WE DO
In October 2011 HEINEKEN selected the city of Kraków as the location for its in-house Finance Shared Services centre. The first operations staff was hired in February 2012 and the first invoice was processed in April 2012. It is hard to imagine now that in early 2012 HGSS did not have a single operating company (OpCo) and that the number of employees could have been counted on the fingers of one hand. Only 3 years later there are almost 800 employees of 27 nationalities serving 21 European OpCos and HEINEKEN Global Procurement in 25 languages. The scope of activities and responsibilities is being further expanded.
The HEINEKEN Global Shared Services centre is an integral part of HEINEKEN’s Global Business Services (GBS) organisation. It was established to better benefit from the scale of the company and optimise its efficiency. The initial scope of HGSS was transactional finance for Europe within Record to Report (Fixed Assets, Tax Accounting, General Ledger Accounting), Order to Cash (Banking / Cash Application, Billing, Credit Risk, Collections and Disputes), Purchase to Pay (Invoice Processing, Query Resolution, Payments). Additionaly HGSS provides Business Process Management (BPM) which covers the scope of standard managerial reporting across all functions within HEINEKEN operating companies and Accounting, Reporting and Consolidation (ARC) which ensures reporting and consolidation at Regional and Global level, working closely with Head Office in Amsterdam, in the Netherlands.
The HEINEKEN Global Shared Services centre is of strategic importance to HEINEKEN. It offers a dynamic and international work environment with access to world class learning and significant career development opportunities. A career at HEINEKEN brings a unique blend of hard work, challenges and fun alongside other talented professionals.
