Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.

The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.

The council has recently implemented the Oracle Cloud system and need a person to manage the support and development of Brent’s Oracle Cloud system.

The role will be responsible for managing a busy team of Finance professionals with responsibility for the finance reconciliations and all associated systems and financial controls relating to Oracle and related feeder systems. 

The postholder will work with colleagues within the team and under the direction of the Head of Service, to drive through enhancements by reviewing existing processes and working with key stakeholders to introduce improved ways of working.

The Person

You will have a track record of managing people in a similarly large and complex organisation with experience of accounting requirements of a large financial system, ideally within a local authority or similar organisation.

You will have excellent judgement and a demonstrable track-record of decision making and solving complex financial issues.  You will be able to demonstrate your ability to manage people and provide a robust system accounting service.

You will have knowledge and experience of financial systems and associated controls.  You will work closely with colleagues in Corporate Finance to ensure that financial accounts are accurate and robust.
