Full time

Over the past couple of years Eastbourne Borough and Lewes District have come together creating a progressive partnership: two sovereign councils each with a unique identity and a shared vision of the future. Through joining our workforce and fostering a modern, collaborative culture, we are serving our residents in a more customer focussed and cost-effective way.

Both councils need to make significant savings in the coming years, and the joint transformation programme to create a single officer team, will certainly contribute to realising those savings. We are now looking for a Deputy Head of Finance Shared Service (and Deputy Section 151 to one of the Councils) to help us continue our momentum and to join us in the journey as we redesign job roles and introduce new ways of working.

As a CCAB qualified accountant, together with the Head of Finance you will provide strategic leadership to our finance team and assist with the management and financial requirements of both councils. As a senior member of the finance team, you will also contribute to our corporate strategic planning processes and our longer term financial plans.

Working with a fun, supportive and collaborative corporate management team, you will bring a track record of success in a public sector finance role, strong all round communication skills, a commercial approach, credibility and an openness to innovative ways of delivering services and generating income.

To learn more about this exciting opportunity working across two councils as part of one team, please click ‘apply now’ or speak with Gary Evans of GatenbySanderson on 0113 205 6080.

Closing date: 8th June
