We’re changing the way we think, what we do, and how we do it – all to deliver better services for everyone. The catalyst? Proud: a transformation programme that’s based on strong new values. We now need ambitious directors who’ll love the challenge of innovating with us. Join us, and make Walsall an even better place to live, work and be proud of.

As our organisation changes, Finance must change too. You’ll lead transformation across this area and make sure the team is ready to support a revitalised council. There’s plenty to build on including stable systems for payroll, pensions and accounting, plus a brand new Oracle-based platform. The areas that need more attention are strategic financial planning, and estates and asset management strategy.

As Deputy S151 Officer, you’ll need technical expertise, commercial acumen and a firm grip on political processes. That’s why you must be a senior finance manager with tried and tested skills. You’ll be able to prepare complex strategies, provide corporate financial advice and lead teams to perform at their best. You’ll also be a member of a professional accountancy body, with knowledge of local government finances.
