We’ve come a long way.

Help take us further.

Reading is a place where your talent and expertise can make a real difference. You’ll be part of senior team that shares a clarity of purpose and consistency of focus, and this has enabled us to transform our financial standing in recent years. If you want to have greater impact and influence this is the ideal place to make things happen.

This is a role for a proven and capable leader: someone who can embed high professional standards and help to shape a culture of high expectations, professional development and a collective sense of accountability and ownership. You’ll shape and lead a modern, flexible finance team that is closely aligned to business objectives, and where regular constructive feedback constantly refines and improves how we work. As the council’s S151 Officer, you will have a leading role with elected members – ensuring decisions are well-informed, and that strategic aspirations are supported by sound financial advice and evaluation of risk. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is outcome-focused with high standards and who can make change happen.
