Job Description

Category: Financial Services

Location: London Greater London United Kingdom

A highly ambitious authority with big plans for the future. We're regenerating industrial estates, creating social housing and leading the development of 10,000 homes in Meridian Water. And that makes our Council a hugely exciting place to be. We've also adopted a new structure for Finance & Commercial that's designed for today's fast-paced environment. We now need a skilled Finance Manager who will support our work and thrive on our new opportunities. As we move from a traditional model of budget monitoring to one of business partnering, we need a qualified accountant to focus on financial modelling and business transformation. Our aim is for Business Partnering to be at the heart of decision-making, supporting the revenue and capital side of the business. You'll join us in supporting some of our key areas, Digital Services and Customer Experience, supporting the directorates to simplify businesses processes as well as completing value-added work, especially options appraisals. In the role, you'll be supporting the Head of Finance, working alongside other Finance Managers and teams with robust financial advice. It involves solving issues, delivering the annual financial cycle and developing in-depth knowledge of your service areas. You'll also streamline budget monitoring and support wider transformation.


  • With varied projects and option appraisals too, you'll need to be commercially sharp and technically capable, with strong people skills.
  • Your knowledge should cover local government finance, budgeting and accounting, and be based on a CCAB accountancy qualification.
  • Used to providing high-level financial advice, you'll be articulate, IT literate and highly analytical.
