Senior Finance Resource - Projects
Allen Lane is working with a central London borough in the recruitment of two senior finance resources to support multiple projects and council initiatives that are placing an increased demand on finance.
Many of these projects involve member engagement. As well as an in depth knowledge of local government finance and a track record operating at a senior level previously, you will need to demonstrate and put to use developed skills in managing the political implications of financial decision making, pushing back when required when finance isn't able to approve certain spend.
You will be assigned to a combination of some of key areas including capital, PFI, VAT and three ambitious council wide initiatives that will have a positive impact on residents as well as the organisations reputation of being a pioneering local authority.
You will be either an accomplished local government project accountant or an experienced deputy section 151 officer or section 151 officer with broad experience across local government finance in its entirety.
