This is a great opportunity to be a part of one of local government’s most exciting transformation.
This career making role will have its challenges but offers the chance to make real lasting impact on financial governance and management in one of London’s largest Councils as we deliver the Croydon Renewal Improvement Plan - and achieve our target of a financially sustainable budget by March 2024.
We’re looking for extensive knowledge and experience of local government finance and the ability to identify transformation opportunities and develop innovative, cost-effective solutions. As a motivational leader, you’ll inspire colleagues and champion our ‘one Council’ approach... In short, you’ll be someone ready to take on a challenge, able to build productive relationships – someone determined to take Croydon forward into a sustainable financial future.
We acknowledge that we haven’t always got things right and we’re honest about what we can achieve - but that doesn’t mean we’re not ambitious. We’re committed to providing value for money, tackling the issues that affect local people, and ensuring they see the full benefit of every pound we spend.
