There has never been such an exciting time to work for Sandwell Council. This year saw the opening of the new Aquatics Centre in the Borough which hosted the Commonwealth Games swimming events. The Council has an ambitious corporate transformation plan and finance sits at the heart of it.
The last year has seen the strengthening of the finance resource since the appointment of a new Director of Finance, with the focus on providing a structure with increased strategic finance resources to make a ‘step change’ in how the Council manages its financial resources.
What we’re looking for
Sandwell is looking to recruit a Head of Technical Finance, Capital and Strategy which reports direct to the Assistant Director Finance. The role is responsible for managing the technical finance areas including Capital expenditure, the completion of the year end accounts and medium-term financial planning.
You will be a qualified accountant with significant post qualification experience of technical accountancy and managing teams.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to help shape the corporate accountancy team working with staff to review and improve processes as part of the finance improvement plan. Providing a consistent and high quality standard across the finance function is the aim with the Council committed to ensuring staff are trained with the appropriate skills.
