Senior / Principal Accountant (Children, Schools and Families)
£39,002 - £43,757 p.a (career graded post which allows for progression once agreed criteria have been met)
To support the Finance Business Partner, we are looking for an ambitious, self-motivated, qualified management accountant to provide financial support, analysis and advice to Children’s Services and to manage a small team.
Whilst it is essential that the successful candidate will have well-developed technical accountancy and analytical skills, it is equally important that they are able to demonstrate “business partnering” skills. We invite applications from candidates who are passionate about the services they support, keen to understand the business models that underpin services and are able to build effective relationships.
It will be a significant advantage for candidates to have knowledge and experience of working with Children’s Services.
It is an exciting, yet challenging time to work in local government finance. North Somerset Council prides itself on being an efficient, well run council and we recognise that good financial management is as important as it has ever been. We are looking to recruit ambitious and adaptable people like you to join our innovative, forward thinking financial management team.
Alongside being a strong technical individual, we are looking for applicants with excellent people, presentation and communication skills and an aptitude to embrace and influence change. Apply now to join a proud group of like-minded professionals, who are dedicated to providing quality support services.
