Local Authorities are facing unprecedented challenges and well managed finances have never been more important.

We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic individual with relevant technical accountancy knowledge specifically relating to Treasury Management. You should be an excellent communicator who is confident dealing with Senior Managers.
You will need outstanding IT skills together with the ability to solve complex problems, have an analytical nature which contributes to the delivery of a high-quality technical service within the corporate accountancy team. In return we offer you the opportunity to develop your career in a supportive environment.

If you think you have the skills, ambition and passion to really make a difference for the City and the Council we would invite you to submit an application.
Closing date for receipt of applications is Monday 27 September 2021. Any applications received after this date will not be accepted.
Previous applicants need not apply as we will integrate these into the final sifting process.
Please be aware that where there are staff within the organisation who are 'at risk' of redundancy, requirements to redeploy to another suitable role will apply and take priority.
All new starters will automatically start at the bottom of the grade.
