These are exciting times for Sandwell, maximising public investment in regeneration to the inclusive benefit of Sandwell communities. In October 2020, Sandwell submitted 3 Town Investment Plans for Rowley Regis, Smethwick and West Bromwich to Government as part of the Towns Fund Programme.  This equated to £67.4m in Towns Fund investment for Sandwell, the second highest funding award in the Country.

As an experienced Claims Monitoring Officer, you will work alongside the Programme Management Office, Finance Team, key colleagues, and partners to support the successful delivery of external funding programmes. You will be expected to:

•    Lead the day-to-day; accounting, administration and processing of internal/external project claims, 
•    Maintain and develop financial processes ensuring compliance with audit requirements
•    Have experience of using financial systems to undertake journals, monitor project payments and reconciliations
•    Monitoring compliance against agreed outcomes as per contracts, via claims, monitoring and audit visits.
•    Be able to present complex financial information to a diverse audience.
•    Have degree/HND or an equivalent financial related NVQ Level 4 or equivalent experience 

You will need a strong track record in public sector financing and compliance, monitoring processes and frameworks, and the ability to manage a demanding workload and complex relationships.
