Over the last few years the Council has transformed the way it works in response to financial challenges from reducing funding. Rather than just focussing on cutting spending, we have reshaped the organisation to make it more business focussed and introduced different delivery vehicles to deliver efficiencies and improve performance. By doing so we have created a strong financial position with a flexible and dedicated workforce to deliver to Newark and Sherwood residents the excellent Council services they deserve.
NSDC are committed to building and maintaining a flexible, resilient and responsive workforce, who can support the needs of our residents. We want to attract as wide a pool of talented candidates as possible and, where we can, will offer you flexibility in the way you work. We will consider suggestions for how the responsibilities of the role can be met through working different hours, days or in different locations. We may not be able to offer flexibility in every role, but where we can, we are happy to discuss options with you at interview.
Reporting to the Business Manager, Financial Services, you will lead a small team which deals with all accounting, budgeting, and treasury management services, including payroll and creditors.
Working in a similar role, with demonstrable post qualification experience, preferably in local government you will be a qualified accountant with up to date knowledge of Local Government Finance. An excellent communicator, with a good working knowledge of the full Microsoft Office suite as well as experience of specialised financial software including payroll, you will be able to interpret complex financial information and produce reports within strict deadlines.
