What you\'ll need to succeed
You will be a qualified accountant with a good understanding of closing accounts in the public sector, such as local government or the NHS.

You will have excellent planning and organisational skills and be able to manage processes and people to deliver against objectives on a timely basis.

What you\'ll get in return
