Job description


Proximus is a company that provides multiple telecom as well as entertainment services. As a vertically integrated company, Proximus deploys a considerable number of technologies, internal processes and customer-oriented processes. This makes its cost structure complex. The mission of the Accounting and Cost Modeling team is to present this structure in a concise and meaningful way using models. These models calculate the economic costs of the main product lines, and are used to produce the information and documents required under the different regulatory obligations to which Proximus is subject.

Job description:

You develop calculation models to determine the economic costs and cost prices of one or more activity areas of the company. You are the contact point within your team for questions related to the economic costs of the production of services.

The areas covered by this function are mainly related to telecom infrastructure.

You maintain and improve cost models which establish causal links between investment expenditure, operating expenditure, and the main product lines. For this, you identify the main components of the networks; determine the variables that affect costs and which link the components to the product lines; and define and obtain the operational volumes corresponding to those variables.

You closely follow the evolution of Proximus' product lines and anticipate changes in cost models.

Your modeling has a clear, auditable structure and you regularly communicate the main points to management. You frequently interact with colleagues to ensure consistency with the other areas and to allow your models to be integrated with those of your colleagues.
