An exciting opportunity has arisen to join one of the country’s leading Fire and Rescue Services, to become part of a team where everyone plays their part in making West Yorkshire Safer.
Joining a first-rate organisation, you will have the job satisfaction of knowing each day that you are contributing to the success of one of just five metropolitan fire and rescue services in the UK, supporting circa. 900 firefighters who work round the clock to help people and save lives.
We are changing the way our Finance Department works so that we can achieve the very best for our colleagues, customers and communities and we are looking for a Finance Officer to help us achieve our ambitions. This is a new role within the department and it’s an exciting opportunity to shape our future and your own career. You will join a supportive team that has a collaborative ethos and clear direction.
You will be responsible for the management of the Fire Authority’s Payroll, Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable functions with a focus on continuous improvement to ensure all Finance systems and processes are customer focused, compliant, streamlined and fit for purpose.
What you will need
This is a post you can apply for if you have a background in public sector financial services and proven experience of managing, developing and motivating staff. To be successful in the role you will require the ability to adhere to strict deadlines and a commitment to providing accurate and reliable management information and excellent customer service at all times.
What we offer
We offer an excellent package, including Local Government Pension Scheme, free parking, 37 hour flexible working week, an employee assistance programme, training and development, sports and social clubs with free use of gym.
Our flexible working arrangements include hybrid working. Whilst you will be required to work from our offices during your initial training, after this you'll work both in the office and from home as part of our 'hybrid' working model. Therefore, applicants must have a reliable home internet connection.
We are a caring organisation, promote an environment of inclusivity and learning and welcome people from all walks of life - just as long as you can show commitment to our values such as integrity and teamwork.
If you can meet this challenge, we want to hear from you!
