Existing and aspiring managers, come and lead the Finance Team at Sevenoaks District Council.  We are a multi-award winning and the first ever Local Authority to have been awarded the prestigious Investors in People Platinum accreditation.

Sevenoaks District is unique and special. Our Members and residents have high expectations – and so do we.  We are financially self-sufficient, and being just half an hour from central London by train, there is plenty going on with considerable scope for development. We need someone with the creativity, skills and desire to take our services to the next level, inspire colleagues and get the best for all our customers.

In this influential role you will be the Deputy S151 Officer and work directly with Chief Officers, the Chief Executive and elected Members.

The Finance Team is not only involved in the regular finance functions of a local authority, but also plays a key role in our trading company and our growing property investment strategy.  These two initiatives are crucial to our long-term success.

Whether you are looking to take the next step up and want to hone your skills at a more strategic level, or as an experienced finance manager, you will relish the opportunity to work for an authority where you are truly empowered to make things happen and deliver excellence.

This is a great role where you can feel assured of the opportunity to succeed.  We will empower you, invest in you, and help you to realise your potential. We want you to impress and have a real and lasting impact on the district.

For an informal discussion please contact Adrian Rowbotham, Chief Finance Officer on 01732 227153.
