Unique challenges require a unique response.  At Cheltenham Borough Council we are striving to do that by leading recovery in our borough, focusing on how we can rebuild our economy and communities to be stronger.

We are an ambitious, award-winning Council and are seeking an equally ambitious individual who will have a major impact on the achievement of these goals and help us shape and deliver our strategies.  As a qualified accountant, you will lead and deliver outstanding, customer focused financial services that underpin our decision making, taking responsibility for day-to-day planning and management of all financial-related activities of our organisation.  You will relish change and challenge but still be able to provide prudent financial judgement during our recovery and transformation to our key stakeholders within the Council & with our partners and be politically astute.

We said we are ambitious: we are aiming to become the cyber capital of the UK with the largest concentration of cyber industry located on the outskirts of Cheltenham.  The Golden Valley Development will deliver a world-class mixed use development including 3,000 homes in a Garden Community & Cyber Central focusing around the rapidly growing cyber-tech.  You will be the lead Finance Business Partner to this project -described as ‘like no other in Britain’ - so you will need to be commercially sharp and capable of supporting complex strategic programmes.
