Director of Finance and Corporate Services
The context for Bexley is changing. New communities are moving into Bexley, increasing the number of younger children and working professionals in our borough. We also have ambitious growth plans including the development of 31,000 new homes.
With high expectations and a genuine commitment to our residents, their needs lie at the heart of everything we do from lobbying for Crossrail to supporting our high performing schools. The Council is highly regarded, we are ahead of the curve in achieving our savings targets and have a strong track record of integrated services and partnership working.
Our new Director will play a pivotal role on Bexley’s leadership team. As the Council’s Statutory S151 Officer you will have strategic responsibility for Finance, Strategy, HR, IT, Transformation, Insight, Customer Services and Procurement. You will also manage the relationship with oneSource which is our partnership for Financial Services with the London Boroughs of Havering and Newham. You will ensure that we use our resources and assets creatively and innovatively and your appetite for transformational change and achieving outcomes for less will help us to deliver against our ambitious growth plans.
To be successful, you will need to demonstrate strong operational grip, the ability to work in true collaboration with peers and partners and the ability to take our motivated workforce with you on our change journey.
