They expect the post-holder to provide excellent support and robust challenge to the organisation to ensure the highest level of service provision.

An appreciation of the changes facing local government finance will be supported by your ability to report financial information clearly.

  • Management of the finance systems, integrations to other systems, and related operational procedures;
  • Production of regular financial monitoring reports;
  • Closure of accounts and financial statements preparation;
