Deputy Financial Controller
Up to £48,000

These are exciting times for the London Boroughs of Wandsworth and Richmond upon Thames. We have created a ground-breaking shared workforce, serving both boroughs and we’re proud of how far we have come, but it’s only the start. We now need an experienced financial professional working to the Financial Controller within the corporate centre to help Council teams deliver the best possible financial outcomes.

This is your chance to build a career at the heart of an innovative service model – a successful shared arrangement that has been thoroughly tried and tested – it’s already creating tight financial control in order to support corporate priorities. Working across two boroughs, you will oversee a variety of financial management functions. You will be supporting a range of teams within a key Council area – within a finance business partner model and advising on varied challenges. As Deputy Financial Controller there is scope to develop financial and administrative systems which support departments fulfil their duties. What is more, great performance will bring real opportunities for progression. 

CCAB-qualified, or part qualified with substantial relevant experience, you will relish the opportunity to work in a large, successful team. You need to bring strong technical accounting skills and a flexible, professional attitude. This approach means you thrive on change and variety. You will enjoy dealing with a wide range of individuals and applying commercial acumen. Although you are already well versed in local government finance, you are a fast learner who picks up new information quickly. With your team focus, you will be equipped to help services achieve excellent financial management.
