Gloucestershire Constabulary is one of the oldest police forces in Britain. The area we cover is around 1,000 square miles and is home to the Cotswolds, the Royal Forest of Dean and the Severn Vale, and includes the urban centres of Cheltenham and Gloucester.

The Chief Finance Officer works closely with the senior leadership of the Constabulary to ensure the proper administration of the forces finances by providing the Statutory section 151 responsibilities for a yearly budget of £126m. Your team provide support across accounts payable and receivable, budget monitoring and budget setting, plus the statutory accounts and returns and treasury management.

In addition, we are looking for our new CFO to support and mentor our new Head of Finance and to develop the finance team to match the evolving organisational needs including the improvement of the finance support to ICT and to assist in the delivery of the overall transformation programme.

If you have a strong public sector finance background, ideally from within the emergency services, we would like to hear from you.
