We are the Zentralwäscherei association, which occupies the premises on the ground floor of the former Zentralwäscherei at Neue Hard 12.

Your tasks

Together with the other members of the operations team, you have equal responsibility for the entire operation of the Zentralwäscherei

You are mainly responsible for the timely processing of accounts payable and wages. Your tasks will also include accounts receivable, the annual financial statements with balance sheet and income statement, VAT settlements, the management of cash registers, accounts and payment transactions as well as the administration of social insurance. You will be involved in the preparation and monitoring of budgets, support the operations team in all financial and business management issues and take on other administrative tasks for the entire business.

The organisation of all these processes can and should be constantly improved. This is also part of your area of activity. As an alternative cultural institution, we never get bored. There are always new projects and tasks for you to get involved in.

What do we want from you?

You enjoy working independently in a large team and can keep an overview even in stressful situations. You are open, communicative and can integrate quickly into an existing team.

You have several years of practical experience in accounting and business administration and are willing to proactively contribute this to our organisation.

The Central Laundry is still a young company and we are looking for people who can design processes, analyse problems and implement solutions.

Our space thrives on the voluntary work and commitment of all members of the organisation, of which you will become a part or are already a part. This means thinking and contributing beyond your employment with a standard salary, which includes participating in association events such as general meetings, retreats or working group meetings. You will also be prepared to work on the front line from time to time, including evening, night and weekend shifts.

Are you keen? We are looking forward to meeting you!
