Capital Accountant - Local Government
Allen Lane are currently working with a local authority to recruit a Capital Accountant to take a two pronged position, focusing on both capital year end accounting and on managing capital programme budgets. However, given the time of year the initial key focus will be on closing.
This will suit an accountant who can work at both an operational and strategic level. The finance department has an upcoming restructure, so the successful candidate will need to have the tenacity to work in a period of change.
As such, key objectives include;
- Providing advice, support and challenge capital programme budget holders
- Maintenance of capital funding records and reporting
- Leading on year end accounting for capital
The successful candidate will ideally be CCAB qualified and have experience of local authority capital accounting and management of capital programme budgets. Excellent communication skills will be key as it will involve the supervision of 2-3 staff.
This will be a quick start so if you have the required skills for this position and are looking for a new challenge then please apply. Please note that due to the urgent time frames on this post applications will be reviewed prior to closing date and as such immediate application is recommended.
