Responding to COVID-19: insight, support and guidance

Service Director Finance S151

Plymouth City Council; Competitive salary, plus relocation

Are you looking for your next challenge? Ready for a step up and an opportunity to work in one of the UK’s most sought after locations? If so, Plymouth, Britain’s Ocean City could be your next move. Not only does Plymouth offer an outstanding quality of life, we have a reputation for pushing the boundaries, driving growth and income and stimulating innovation, while making sure we put our residents and local economy first.

Plymouth has a huge amount of offer but there are plenty of challenges. The implications of COVID-19 and the changing landscape of local government finances means we have to push the boundaries even further and continue to be creative with the way we work.  

Working with the strategic director of customer and corporate services, chief executive and elected members, you will have an opportunity to reshape the service. We are serious about modernising the way we work so we can respond to a challenging but exciting future.

You will be professionally qualified, bring excellent technical capability and have an excellent track record in modernising finance functions and associated services. Whether currently in the public or private sector, you will be inspiring, driven and innovative, and will be able to evidence a strong track record of leading and supporting organisational change.
