Are you looking for a challenge? Does your ambition match ours?

We are looking to appoint a Head of Finance to provide leadership to the functions within the Finance Service and act as the council’s statutory Section 151 Officer.

Whether that is working with council services to deliver our four year financial plan, supporting major investment projects, overseeing the commercial programme charged with identifying £5m in new income by 2020, or radically improving our approach to customer contact, your skills will go far beyond that of the traditional number cruncher.

You will be an inspiring and motivational leader, an effective communicator and driven to achieve challenging objectives. You will have experience at a senior level in the management and delivery of services and be able to promote and embed a culture of financial and commercial awareness.

For an informal discussion about the role please contact Rachel Bowles, Director of Corporate Affairs on 01423 556705.

Closing date: Sunday 1 October 2017

Interview dates: Wednesday 11 October 2017 (Officer Panel) and Thursday 12 October 2017 (Member Panel).
