Accountancy Officer – CG04317
Salary:  G7 - £24,717 - £29,033 per annum

An opportunity has arisen for an Accountancy Officer to support the Change and Governance directorate, specifically in support of the Council’s Support Services.

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual who enjoys interacting with others, has knowledge and experience of finance and the ability to communicate and present effectively to non-financial staff / customers at all levels. 

As an employer we provide an attractive employment package that includes: 

  • a generous annual leave entitlement of up to 33 days, in addition to a flexible working scheme that allows up to a further 12 days leave per year,
  • a career average pension scheme,
  • an excellent training scheme to support employees to obtain a professional accountancy qualification and where appropriate to support continuing professional development,
  • recent redevelopment of the working environment which has created a modern professional space in which to work with improved technology that allows for agile working. 

The post requires a good understanding of providing accountancy services within a large complex organisation.  In recognition of the knowledge that experience in other sectors can bring, whilst an understanding of local government practice would be an advantage we would stress that it is not essential. 

This post is covered by the Government’s Code of Practice on the English Language Fluency Duty for public sector workers. 

The closing date for applications is Sunday 13th August 2017

Interviews will be held week commencing 21st August 2017
