Two Councils One Team

Eastbourne Borough and Lewes District Councils have a well-established and progressive partnership: two sovereign councils each with a unique identity and a shared vision of the future. Through joining our workforces and fostering a modern collaborative culture, we are serving our residents in a more customer-focused and cost-effective way. And that has never been more important. As we emerge from the Coronavirus pandemic, we’re determined to achieve the very best for our communities – driving a Recovery and Reset journey that touches everyone who works and lives here.

Joining our team, you’ll be our HRA financial expert and manage our Business Plan.  You’ll oversee financial reporting and budgeting relating to all aspects of Housing, including investment and development, and rent setting processes. From monitoring political, economic, social and technical contexts and their impact on Housing, to supporting strategic decision-making and contributing to operational plans, you’ll be pivotal to our efficiency and effectiveness.

Preferably a CCAB qualified accountant, you’ll have considerable experience of Local Government and Housing Finance and exceptional communication and management skills. An adaptable approach and openness to new ideas will be essential too.
