Hartlepool is a vibrant and energetic town with growing prospects. As an authority we want to make Hartlepool the best it possibly can be and want dedicated, driven and committed staff to help us achieve that.

Two exciting opportunities have arisen within the Corporate Finance Team for qualified accountants. 

The first post (ref. 101101) is suitable for the accountant who enjoys the technical aspects of accounting. The post will be responsible for a range of corporate services, including a key role in the production of the annual statutory accounts for Hartlepool Borough Council, advice and support in relation to VAT, and monitoring and analysis of the Collection Fund.  You will also be responsible for managing and developing a small team of accountancy technicians.

The second post (ref. 102147) will be responsible for managing the financial relationship between the Council and Cleveland Fire Authority, providing support with strategic budget setting and Council Tax setting and be responsible for the production of the annual statutory accounts. In addition, the post holder will also be responsible for banking arrangements, managing the cash book team and coordination of statutory returns including the RO and RA Forms.

Both posts will advise and coordinate on the implementation of new reporting requirements affecting the statutory accounts.

Applications will be considered for both posts unless a preference is specified in the application.
