Section Head - Financial Planning and Analysis
Salary £53,833 to £58,022 + £5,000 market supplement

Together, Three Rivers District Council and Watford Borough Council have a strong record of investing directly in the communities we serve. From major development and regeneration projects, to new housing and excellent support for new businesses, we’re working hard to support people across the local area. And this role offers you a chance to be part of ensuring our success.

As our Financial Planning and Analysis Section Head, you’ll help to lead our Finance shared-service – embedding polices and systems, enhancing processes and monitoring effectiveness. Your work will include all aspects of financial planning, accounting and budgeting, as well as project work. You’ll work directly with senior colleagues across both Councils, delivering an exceptional service at every level and taking a lead role in our strategic thinking. You’ll also oversee financial training – supporting your team within Finance and other services across the organisation.

A qualified accountant (ideally with CIPFA membership), you’ll be familiar with local government environments and have an excellent working knowledge of finance theory and practice. You will need strong analytical skills and a flair for influencing people at all levels. You’ll also be confident briefing and advising senior management, organising others and making decisions under pressure. Experience of running a financial service in a complex organisation and overseeing far-reaching change projects are going to be essential too.
