It will bind us to work together, representing the beginning of our journey and collective effort to shape the future of Lambeth.

The finance department in the Council is currently in a rebuilding phase, which is creating a lot of opportunity for development and progression. As we move forward in our journey, we are looking to recruit a number of Finance roles over the next few months including a Group Accountant to lead on Financial Reporting.

The successful candidate will be responsible for pulling together and driving through the timetable for closedown including building relationships and getting engagement across the Council. They will draft the statement of accounts, lead the public inspection process, and manage the external audit of the accounts as the key contact with External Auditors, and will be expected to manage that relationship and ensure an ongoing successful working partnership.
