An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our Finance Business Partner team at this District Council, located in beautiful Hampshire.

The Council has been adopting system thinking principles into the way it works and this has had a big effect on how we deliver our financial services. We see our qualified accountants as valued partners working alongside services to help deliver what matters to their customers.

We are therefore looking for somebody who not only has the required technical accounting, IT and analytical skills but who also has a desire to be part of the decision-making process by building effective working relationships and using their financial acumen to provide effective support, advice and challenge.

You will be CCAB (or equivalent) qualified with experience of budget setting, budget monitoring and forecasting with some knowledge of the structure of local government accounts. Experience in accounting for Capital and Fixed Assets, the Collection Fund and VAT would be an advantage, but is not essential.

For an informal discussion about the post please contact Caroline Hancock, Finance Strategy and Development Manager on 01329 824589 or e-mail: chancock@fareham.gov.uk.
