Job role
Contract Type
Full time

Chippenham is one of the largest town Councils operating in the town and parish sector, in fact we operate in a similar manner to a small district council. We have a population of over 40,000 a revenue budget of over £3.5M, we have over 100 employees and volunteers. We operate in a two tier county unitary setting with no district or borough council, we are the second tier of local government. As the council’s S151 Officer and statutory ‘Responsible Finance Officer’, you will form part of the council’s Corporate Leadership Team.

This is great opportunity to join a small council that punches well above its weight and would provide a great stepping stone to Director role in a principal council or a Chief Executive role in the town and parish sector. You’ll be a chartered accountant and have membership of a professional body such as CIFPA. We have an exciting four year Corporate Strategic Plan that will take us through to 2022 and an overarching vision of, 'improving the quality of town life'.
