Individual

We are looking for a motivated individual who is keen to develop their financial skills and is ideally seeking to undertake study for the Association of Accounting Technicians.  As the Section is small there will be a requirement to cover and support other roles within the Section.

The successful candidate will be a team player, who will support and provide cover where necessary within the Section.  This will include control account reconciliations, accounts payable and receivable   Alongside this, you would be involved in the annual budget setting and production of the statutory accounts.  You will be working as part of a team in all aspects of council finance giving you a great insight into emergency service finances.

What we offer

Together with the professional opportunities available in this role, we offer the following benefits:

  • A flexi-time scheme and hybrid working arrangements (although the latter has to meet the needs of the Service)
  • Professional membership paid each year
  • Opportunities and support to undertake professional and vocational training
  • Leave entitlement starting at 27 days plus bank holidays, rising to 32 days with 5 years’ service
  • Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme

  • Access to the Blue Light Card – the UK’s largest Emergency Services discount card

Closing date for applications is Sunday 28th July 2024 at 23:59. Interviews are scheduled to take place week commencing Monday 5th August 2024.

The successful applicant will be subject to pre-employment checks including a standard DBS check and a social media screening check. The successful applicant will also be subject to a NPPV Level 2 Vetting Check, as we are co-located on West Mercia Police premises.
