Strategic Financial Advisor Corporate
Right now there is a real buzz about Waltham Forest following the announcement that we are the first London Borough of Culture. It is a place where people want to live, raise a family and start a business. Since 2010 we have reshaped our Council to deliver substantial savings, to improve our services and invest in the future. Despite the significant financial challenges we have delivered a balanced budget every year and we have a clear vision as set out in our medium term financial plan which runs up to 2023. The Council has embarked on a new vision called “Creating Futures” and effective management and use of our resources is essential to our success.
As the corporate Strategic Financial Advisor you will be responsible for the development of the Council’s Medium Term Financial Strategy which is the main tool used to manage the annual financial planning and budget cycle. You will coordinate the overall financial and budget planning process and will manage and monitor the service requirements as part of the business planning cycle with a view to maximising effectiveness, efficiency and outcomes of the Council’s scarce revenue resources.
You will combine a high level of technical acumen with the ability to translate strategy and plans into operational plans that underpin the Council’s activities. We want people who are at the top of their game, that think creatively and will help prepare the council for the financial challenges ahead as we approach 2020 and the new local government finance system. We are looking for strong corporate leadership, combined with excellent communication skills and someone who is comfortable working at all levels to help develop the service for the benefit of our residents.
