Job Details

Are you a strong technical accountant with the ability to drive through modernisation?

Waltham Forest is a vibrant, open borough rich in culture and diversity, with big aspirations.

We are a young, diverse borough bursting with potential and opportunity with a Council that delivers for our residents, businesses and partners.

The Group Accountant supports the Chief Accountant and provides high-level advice and support to the Council, councillors and senior managers as well as playing a lead role in the closure of accounts. The role is tasked with identifying the national and local economic trends to drive through best practice within financial management.

To be suitable for the role, you need to be a qualified accountant with excellent technical accounting knowledge and the ability to translate complex financial information. Previous experience of producing annual accounts and liaising with External Auditor, ideally in a public sector setting, is essential.

We are keen to hear from all applicants who fit the criteria. Because we are clear that a combination of differences in our teams produces the best team performance, we are particularly keen to make sure that applicants include people from ethnic minorities, people who live openly as LGBTQI+, or with a disability. We recognise that what people bringing through their personal experiences, background and identity significantly enhances the Council’s ability to deliver to our staff and residents.

If you are interested in being part of this exciting opportunity and working for an employer with flexible working options and award-winning family friendly policies, please apply.

To find out more information about the role please contact Will Ryan at Ivy Rock Partners or 07909030965.

To apply please send through a CV and supporting statement. The supporting statement should be no longer than 2 pages and should say why you are interested in the role and working at Waltham Forest, alongside specific examples of your relevant experience. 

The closing date is Monday 10th June.
