Walsall Council is transforming and with it, so is Walsall’s Financial Services. This is an exciting time to join our team. The Walsall Proud Programme is our transformation Programme, which aims to transform the way the council works so that we can provide a better customer experience, increase staff satisfaction and engagement, and improve service efficiency and performance to our customers and communities. The Programme is closely linked with our medium-term financial strategy and Walsall’s Financial Services are a key driver in achieving the organisation’s aspirational vision.
We are looking to recruit three Finance Business Partners, to help continue to support this transformation journey, within the Adult Social Care Finance Team, supporting our service managers and directors specifically with support to Adult Social Care demand led services.
These roles have become available due to a mix of progression of existing officers and an investment into Adult Social Care Finance Team to support a growing area of the organisation.
We are looking for enthusiastic and pragmatic individuals, with can do attitudes, experience of financial stewardship, be able to demonstrate experience of working with large volumes of data/data analytical skills and have an ability to calculate and articulate large volumes of complex financial information, which are all key strengths that you will need to undertake the role.
