£70,140 to £81,834
Closing date
1 Jul 2024

About you

Ahead of the retirement of our Head of Finance later this year, we’re looking for a very special sort of Finance person to replace them. It goes without saying that you’ll be able to do all the usual Finance things - accounts, budgets, medium term financial strategies. You’ll be commercially astute, and IT literate. But we also want to find someone who is curious, supports and empowers teams, and is a great colleague who will form an important part of our Leadership Team. Pace is important. Building trusting relationships is important. Being able to communicate complex financial issues to a wide range of audiences is important.

Led by innovative and forward-thinking councillors, and an exceptionally capable Leadership Team, our Business Plan is both focused and ambitious.

Driven by providing excellent services for our current residents and businesses, and great places for new communities to live, work and play, we are Ambitious, Collaborative, Compassionate and Accountable – these are our recently adopted values, and we want them to guide everything we do. We will offer you a friendly and lively environment, where we face challenges as a team, and celebrate successes together.
