About the organisation
Blackpool is the home of the world famous Illuminations and one of the UK’s major visitor destinations with over 13 million visitors each year. The Council spends over £445m each year on a range of diverse services for our 142,000 residents.
Blackpool might be the biggest and the brightest but it isn’t without its challenges. We have major social and health issues to deal with, whilst needing to develop and innovate so our town continues to meet the desires of modern day audiences.
You will be working for an organisation that has big plans to take the town forward. From lending £100m to local business to enable them to develop within the area, starting an Enterprise Zone to encourage a more diverse range of businesses to set up within the town, taking forward a number of major redevelopment schemes within the town which will transform some of the more deprived areas of the town whilst also working with a range of partners in health and the voluntary sector to improve the life chances of Blackpool’s residents.
We are a small team in accountancy, which means you will have an opportunity to be involved in all of these projects. We can offer a range and depth of experience that few other organisations can match.
Be involved in a range of new projects that will transform Blackpool. We will give you the opportunity to become a fully qualified accountant whilst making a valuable contribution to the work of the council.
