Allen Lane are currently working with a London local authority to recruit a Project Accountant to support senior finance colleagues, sitting within the heart of the Councils’ decision making process, through a integration and transformation project. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to join a council that is going through significant change and play a pivotal role in implementing the guidelines of how that works going forwards.

The Project Accountant will be required to deliver two key objectives:

  • The implementation of a council wide corporate approach for devolved budget management
  • Develop processes within the council’s finance system to ensure the system is fully functional and supports the requirements of the council

The role requires a collaborative approach to working with finance colleagues to deliver best practice and implement procedural change to financial and management accounting processes.  As such, you will be a motivated self-starter with a successful record in a change environment.  Experience of producing and publishing clear and succinct guidance to financial and non-financial managers is a must.

If you would like an opportunity to get involved in a changing environment and are keen to improve current processes then this will be a great fit for you. Please note that due to the urgent time frames on this post applications will be reviewed prior to closing date and as such immediate application is recommended.
