This is an exciting time to join Rotherham Council and an opportunity to make a real difference. We are an authority that has changed dramatically, and we look to the future with a renewed sense of purpose where our residents are central to what we do, and we support individuals to lead healthy, safe and fulfilling lives. It is in this context that we are looking to appoint an outstanding Assistant Director of Financial Services who will deliver the highest standards of financial management to ensure that we maximise our impact.
This is a key role leading a wide range of services within the Council’s finance function, directly supporting the S.151 Officer in ensuring sound financial management across the entire organisation. You will work closely with the Leader and Chief Executive in developing the Budget and Financial Strategy, as well as working with other senior officers and Members to provide sound financial advice and support.
We are seeking a financial leader who can meet our challenge through sustainable, innovative and creative ways of working, and who has a passion for providing excellent services to the people, businesses and communities of Rotherham. Effective partnership working with internal and external stakeholders is crucial. This will include bringing appropriate support and challenge, as well as leading our well established business partnering approach that supports colleagues in making good financial decisions. You will bring strong negotiating and influencing skills, working with a diverse range of stakeholders to build consensus. You will also have proven experience of leading and managing change to achieve improved outcomes, establishing an effective performance culture that achieves corporate and service objectives.
