Your role

Working closely with the Chief Accountant, you’ll help ensure we deliver robust and accurate financial data to the business. This involves maintaining key accounting records, including the register of fixed assets and supporting the preparation of the final accounts for the Chief Constable and PCC & Group. You’ll be preparing information and analysis for the statement of accounts, pension fund accounting and delivering statistical returns.  At the same time, you’ll be monitoring and advising on a range of relevant financial issues including VAT and taxation issues and helping to train other financial team members as well as promoting financial governance throughout the organisation.

What you’ll need

You’ll need experience of final accounts closedown, with an understanding of key accounting principles. AAT with 3 years post qualification experience or part CCAB qualified with 3 years’ experience, you’ll have the ability to adapt to a variety of tasks and situations. You’ll also have the ability to understand and communicate complex technical and financial data and its implications.

What we offer

Flexible working in modern facilities, our new Joint HQ with Nottinghamshire Fire Service due for completion in early 2022 includes onsite canteen facilities and a gym.  We have a proactive staff health and wellbeing strategy to support our people with wellbeing ambassadors and champions.   We are committed to proactive career management and development of our people and the successful candidate will be actively encouraged to participate in continuing professional development.
