We are working in partnership with a local authority organisation in the Midlands region who are looking for the support of an Interim Chief Accountant.

The successful candidate will ideally be a fully qualified accountant (CIPFA, CIMA, ACCA or ACA) with demonstrable experience and achievements of supporting another local authority through a year-end accounts closure process – including production of the statement of accounts, liaison with auditors and supporting the Head of Finance with production of a detailed narrative behind the accounts.
