Finance Community of Practice Lead with Deputy Section 151 Officer Responsibility
We are currently seeking to recruit a Finance Community of Practice lead to manage the day to day delivery of the Accountancy service to our two Councils. With a recognised CCAB qualification, you will be responsible for managing the day to day Accountancy Service. You will have expert knowledge in the delivery of local authority accounting services and the CIPFA Code of Practice on Local Authority Accounting.
As a Member of the Councils' Extended Leadership Team, you will be confident in advising Senior Managers and elected Members on complex financial matters and financial modelling within local government.
South Hams District Council and West Devon Borough Council are two forward-thinking Councils with a shared vision of innovation and excellence for our residents. We have had a shared management team since 2011 and have successfully delivered a large change agenda which has allowed us to continue to maintain services, whilst absorbing substantial reductions in central government funding.
Both Councils welcome the opportunity to increase our efficiency and maintain our services by continually improving the 'customer experience' for our population.
If you are prepared to think the unthinkable and feel that you have a 'can do' approach to life and problems, then this job provides an excellent platform for you to demonstrate your skills, knowledge and experience.
If you join us, you will become part of a highly skilled, motivated and positive team which is determined to give good value for money and a high quality experience to our customers.
