Full time

The Chief Finance Officer works at the heart of the organisation as principal adviser to the Council on all financial matters. We’re looking for someone with the professional skills and knowledge to build effective relationships and partnerships with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders.  

But there is more to this role than just finance.  As part of the Corporate Leadership Team reporting to the Chief Executive, this key strategic role will lead on corporate strategic planning, performance monitoring, corporate governance, develop our commercial strategy, and managing the relationship with Liberata - one of our key partners. The £5m contract with Liberata delivers a number of critical services including revenues & benefits, HR, IT and property. This is an opportunity for the successful candidate to apply their existing skills as well as developing new ones in a cross-cutting, multi-functional corporate management role.  

The successful post holder will enjoy working in a dynamic and friendly Council.  We support flexible working and in a post Covid world would consider an applicant wanting to work for us whilst living in another UK location as long as some time (to be negotiated) is spent at our offices.  

Pendle has the best of both worlds; miles of stunning open countryside, peaceful villages, great pubs and restaurants and quality independent shops in our vibrant towns – all within 45 minutes of Manchester.
