The City of London Corporation is like no other local authority – and our finances are just as unique. Thoroughly modern but older than Parliament, we serve the heart of the capital.

As Assistant Director of Strategic Finance, you'll be on the national stage, building your name and career.

In this key strategic role, you'll deputise for the Deputy Chamberlain and lead our corporate accounting teams. We'll look to you for annual revenue and capital budgets, and the financial statement of accounts. You'll also perform dynamic financial modelling and create our medium term financial plan. And you'll do it all in organisation that's financially secure, with a sophisticated cash flow.

Your work will bring you into contact with members and senior leaders, who will be looking to you for guidance. You must therefore be a confident financial advisor with proven technical expertise. Qualified, experienced and a born strategic thinker, you'll relish complex challenges such as major capital projects. In fact, you'll thrive on the opportunity to approach issues with ambition and creativity. Calm, articulate and resilient, you'll be an excellent manager who explains complex matters clearly.
