About the role
This is mainly a systems accountant role (60%) with an added element of business partnering, where you will support the business managers and their teams by providing financial advice, insight, analysis and encourage commercial thinking.
The Financial Services Team is fundamental to the business, providing on-going support, advice and challenge on the organisation’s financial arrangements. As the Principal Accountant responsible for systems accounting, you will manage and continue to develop the Council’s financial management system. In your business partnering role, you will actively participate in the smooth delivery of the following key financial processes for revenue and capital: budget setting, budget monitoring, closedown and producing the statement of accounts. Each member of the team has responsibility for some project work and may undertake some procurement of contracts.
The Financial Services Team uses matrix management to achieve its objectives, and so, this post would, at times, direct the activities and workload of any or all of the officers within the Financial Services Team, in consultation with the Financial Services Manager and the Chief Accountant.
We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic, pro-active, tenacious and has the ability to deliver workloads within tight timescales.
You will have good interpersonal skills and be a qualified accountant with experience of systems accounting and supporting complex service delivery, preferably within local government.
If you get excited about trying out new ideas and are always on the lookout for better ways of doing things, then you might be the new team member that we are hoping will join us.
