Deputy City Treasurer
Deputy City Treasurer - Manchester City Council (up to £108,853)
Manchester is one of the UK’s leading cities, a global city at the heart of the Northern Powerhouse. We’re ambitious, we drive forward, take brave steps and always push to get the best for our people and businesses. We want a new Deputy City Treasurer to share this dynamism, excitement, energy and belief in a better future.
Sitting at the heart of the city and the council, this is not the usual Deputy role. It has national influence and profile with an impact across Greater Manchester. This role offers the platform to make your career. You’ll be central to our partnerships, our performance and our delivery. As our Deputy section 151 officer you’ll work closely with our political and Executive leadership, sit on our Commercial Board, represent Manchester nationally and across Greater Manchester, build our integrated work with health and social care and support our wide-ranging partnerships.
You’ll face some key challenges; embedding the Our Manchester strategy, overseeing our net £665m budget whilst securing our £50m savings in 2021/22 and planning for subsequent years, further deepening our health and social care integration, supporting the Northern Gateway to deliver 15,000 new homes and working with all sectors and partners to build a better future.
You’ll bring exceptional judgement, honed from working in or close to local government (or a relevant, aligned public service) with exposure to advising local politicians. As a suitably qualified accountant, you’ll maintain our track record of stability, with a sound strategy that balances managed risk, technical creativity and effective oversight. You’ll build excellent relationships, used to exert influence, shape the city and deliver generational change. As a trusted colleague of the Deputy Chief Executive and City Treasurer, you’ll have the freedom and authority to succeed. You’ll have the deep experience to show you can succeed at pace in a large city-council.
If you’re excited at the prospect of joining one of the most forward-thinking cities in the UK, are inspired by our Vision for Manchester and can make a positive impact, Manchester could be the next step in your career.
