Job Description

I am excited to be recruiting for an Interim Financial Accountant for a Local Government Authority based in Worcestershire, who are looking for year end support as we enter 2021.

Client Details

My clients are a Local Authority based in Worcestershire who manage services for two specific areas across the region. They are well established, but are looking for additional support managing their year-end process.


Key responsibilities for the Interim Financial Accountant including managing the year end process, completing their Final Accounts to IFRS standards and managing all Government returns.

This is a rewarding but hands on position and requires the successful candidate to work using their own initiative whilst supporting the Chief Accountant in their day-to-day responsibilities.


The successful candidate must be a fully qualified accountant and ideally have experience of leading and managing teams within a Local Government environment.

Whilst the client can be flexible in finding a balance between working in the office and working from home, there will be a requirement to be in the office and therefore, will probably need to drive. A happy medium maybe, working from home 2 days per week.

  • Complete year end, final accounts
  • Complete all government returns
  • Deputise for Chief Accountant
  • Be hands on
  • Deliver against tight deadlines and timescales

Job Offer

6 month contract, inside IR35, starting in January 2021.
