Your role

The role is wide and varying, including providing accurate, understandable, and timely financial information to enable budget holders at all levels to manage their budgets efficiently and effectively, and undertaking Treasury activities in support of the Authority’s cash balances.

What you will need

As a Career Grade role we are looking for those that need support with a career in accountancy as well as those who are already qualified and experienced. This is a post you can apply for if you have practical experience in budget preparation and monitoring, the ability to adhere to strict deadlines and are looking for a new career opportunity. We are looking to appoint people at different points on the career grade structure according to qualifications and experience.

Entry level requirements:

As a part qualified Accounting Technician (Minimum AAT Level 3) you will be given the opportunity to complete your studies for your Accounting Technician qualification and progress through the salary bandings until such time as you are fully qualified and have acquired the experience necessary to carry out the full duties of the role.

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.
