Interim Principal Accountant
CIPFA-Penna are supporting a district council in the North-East of England in recruiting for an Interim Principal Accountant for a period of 9 months (minimum).
The role will involve supporting the council’s CFO in setting and managing budgets, preparing the accounts through to audit completion, providing financial guidance to the council’s operational and leadership teams, financial analysis and significant involvement in supporting projects and project teams across the council (working on projects such as devolution, funding, etc.). The role will therefore provide a varied mixture of hands-on work with more strategic and conceptual work.
To be considered for this role you will ideally be a fully qualified accountant (CIPFA, ACCA, ACA or CIMA) with extensive experience of technical accounting and providing meaningful financial support to non-finance people.
