We are currently recruiting for high calibre public sector specialist accountants for Birmingham City Council, the biggest single Council body in Europe. Currently undergoing a significant and ambitious improvement programme, this is an exciting time to join this huge authority and join a dedicated team of both permanent and interim staff looking to create a world class culture of financial management.
If you are an experienced or qualified Finance Business Partner or Accountant with high technical standards and strong communication skills, you’ll enjoy the broad challenge and drive for improvement on offer here. There is a recognition that the Council can and should improve how it works and controls its substantial budget, as well as a number of major projects on the horizon which will need expert support. It will be a challenge – all public sector bodies have experienced significant financial pressures in the last few years as you will doubtless be aware – but there is the resource and desire to ensure that the residents of one of Britain’s biggest cities have public services they can be proud of.
We are looking for candidates who have some recent exposure to financial management in the public sector. We have roles at different levels and in different directorates from Adult Social Care to Resources, so any government experience you’ve got is likely to be relevant.
You will need strong inter-personal skills, high personal standards or work and good post-qualified experience in the public Sector, ideally Government – either Local or Central. You’ll be comfortable with tight deadlines, willing to be flexible during busy periods and keen to share your experience for the good of the finance department as well as the wider organisation. Flexible working is possible and for those looking to relocate/stay away to deliver on this assignments, Birmingham offers a lively and exciting place to live and work.
