Brent Council
London (Greater) - Hybrid
£62,748 - £66,156 plus benefits
Closing date
21 May 2024

Your new organisation 
This is a great time to join the finance team at London Borough of Brent. You will work with an outstanding leadership team and will join a highly committed and innovative team who are dedicated to building on their performance. Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make-up.

The role
There are 2 positions on offer in this team both of which are business partnering roles, managing substantial budgets and providing support to senior managers.

The 2 posts;

* Public Realm and Law & Governance - Supporting the budgets holders with a focus on the public realm – this includes parking, highways and waste management. Given that many of the services are contracted out there will be a particular focus on contract management and the associated finance and reporting. You will also support the Law & Governance Directorate which includes Legal, HR & Democratic Services.

*Inclusive Regeneration & Employment, and Strategic Housing - Supporting teams in regeneration which includes the planning function. Management of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)/S106 will be a key part of the role. Regeneration also includes Building Control and Employment & Enterprise services. Finance support will also be provided to Strategic Housing which includes tenant engagement and caretaking services.

Systems: Oracle and Excel.

What you need to succeed
You will be a qualified accountant and will ideally have worked in local government finance – experience of regeneration and working in the public realm would be a definite benefit. If you have not worked in the specialism directly you must be capable of communicating that you have a very clear understanding of what the area is responsible for and the associated challenges. You should be comfortable explaining complex information to non financial managers as well as work well with external stakeholders.

What you'll get in return 
Flexible working options are available. Hybrid working  

Benefits include;

  • Competitive salary
  • The opportunity to join the Local Government Pension Scheme
  • Generous holiday entitlements starting from 27 days holiday a year
  • A full range of family friendly policies, including generous maternity and paternity entitlements and childcare schemes
  • Flexible working patterns, including hybrid working 
  • Training and development opportunities
  • Good travel links in and out of Wembley and a range of cost-saving travel schemes
  • Access to My Brent Rewards, our dedicated website for staff with big brand discounts and local offers 
  • Work at the outstanding state-of-the-art Brent Civic Centre

Please note that applications will be reviewed as they are received. Please do not wait until the closing date to apply.
