Senior Business Partner
An exciting opportunity for a qualified Accountant has arisen within Financial Services. We require a talented and enthusiastic professional to play a key role in the Council’s Finance team, managing a team of Business Partners to provide strong financial support to services through budget setting and monitoring, as well as leading on the closure of the Council’s annual accounts.
The Council is continually striving to deliver savings through improved ways of working. While you will have a key role in coordinating financial processes, we are also seeking an individual who can drive change and improvements in financial practice across the organisation.
This highly influential role calls for much more than your ability as a technically proficient accountant. You will have good knowledge of local government and the environment in which it operates, and the ability and confidence to work at the strategic levels of the organisation.
The successful candidate will be flexible, adaptable and thrive challenges. You will have a good technical understanding of financial management and financial modelling and have an innovative and creative approach to problem solving. You will bring commercial acumen, experience of working at the forefront of financial practice and leadership skills that inspire those around you.
The Council offers a number of benefits to employees, including free parking, a generous annual leave entitlement, a career average pension scheme and flexible working arrangements. The role is based within Welwyn Garden City, with strong transport links to other towns and cities, being in close proximity to the train station and the A1 (M) and A414.
For an informal discussion, please contact Richard Baker (Head of Resources) on 01707 357425.
