St Albans is a unique English Cathedral City with a colourful history which can be seen in the Roman remains and variety of beautiful architecture, heritage sites and conservation areas. Set within green belt, off the M25, A1M and M1 the District includes a cathedral, historic city centre and charming villages. Our refurbished offices are in the city centre near to the station (London St Pancras 20 minutes), shops and restaurants. In short it is a great place to live and work.

We are looking for a team leader to join our team to provide financial planning, budget monitoring and support for designated services within the Council.

You should have excellent numerical and analytical skills, good communication skills and a proven track record of successfully working in a finance environment.

We offer a competitive package which includes up to 26 days annual leave, pension scheme, reimbursement of professional fees, management development and training, flexible working options (including homeworking), leisure and travel discounts and a number of other benefits.
