Salary to £71,233
Cheshire West and Chester is an exceptional place with diverse scenery and communities. From industrial towns to rural villages and from leading-edge new technology businesses to a strong agricultural heritage, there is a wealth of reasons as to why people want to live in, work in and visit the borough. With a population of just under 330,000, the area covered by the borough includes the major towns of Ellesmere Port, Neston, Winsford, Northwich and Frodsham and the historic city of Chester.
Cheshire West and Chester Council has an exciting opportunity for a proven strategic leader to head up our Transactional Service Centre. The Centre brings together a diverse range of transactional financial services under one manager including benefit and financial assessments, council tax and other income collection (including debt recovery), and payroll services to both internal and external clients including schools and Cheshire East Council on a shared service basis. The postholder will be responsible for the success of the centre's significant transformation journey, building a cohesive, efficient, flexible, customer focused and commercially adept operation and culture.
We are therefore looking for candidates with a proven track record of consistent achievement in a relevant senior role with a large and complex organisation. You do not need to have a finance qualification – what is more important is your ability to lead and manage large teams and offer the vision and determination to transform and modernise this crucial service area.
