CIPFA expansion in Chester


The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA), has recently expanded its Chester office, which is expected to create thirty new jobs over the next five years. 

The decision has opened up roles for the events team, customer service team and business development team. The expanded office also includes a digital team, which is responsible for the development and support of property asset management software it provides to local authorities in the UK.

The Chester office has been the base for CIPFA’s property services for the past twenty years. CIPFA Property offers advisory services that help public authorities meet demands in various areas, including asset management, stock condition surveys and property training events. The expansion has taken place as part of the ongoing review of CIPFA’s property portfolio.

This change is expected to ease the pressure of recruiting and retaining permanent staff in London, therefore creating more stable teams and improving customer service across the organisation. The community spirit of the Chester team is also expected to bring benefit to the local community as they regularly fundraise for local causes.

David Brindley, Director for CIPFA Property, commented: “It is great that CIPFA is providing additional jobs across the UK.

“As an organisation we are always looking to expand in order to support public sector finance and by extending services in Chester, CIPFA is providing a positive base for members in different parts of the UK.”
