About the organisation
Reading Borough Council is a unitary authority in Berkshire. The council provides a wide range of services to local residents including education, housing, social services, planning, libraries and leisure. Reading is a thriving university town, 25 minutes from London with great transport connections and soon to be served by Crosslink rail. The town has great services which we are passionate to build and protect. A sound financial basis for those services is a crucial part to delivering them effectively, efficiently and economically and the finance team at Reading Borough Council partners with the service managers to ensure the financial management is robust.
We are keen that our finance trainees have an opportunity to work across the various functions within finance (including technical accounting, accounts payable, management accounting and financial analysis) so that they get a broad range of experience whilst learning the fundamental principles of accountancy. This is a great opportunity to try the different areas before deciding what type of accountancy to specialise in.
