For a highly-regarded CIPFA or CCAB-qualified public sector professional, this is a rare financial leadership and transformation challenge. With a new leadership team in place, we’re revolutionising our financial activities. If strategic vision, ambitious ideas, smart processes and practical innovations are your stock in trade, we’d love you to lead the team.

Shape a new finance function

Principally, the role will see you become our Deputy 151 Officer and take complete responsibility for our medium-term financial strategy, developing a best in class financial control and provide professional financial support to our improving services.

It’s something that involves close working with senior figures across the Council and our external partners. Obviously, financial prudence, accuracy and regulatory compliance are paramount. However, you will be judged on your ability to devise and create a function that reflects the Borough’s corporate and public needs. And to oversee projects that improve practices that set new benchmarks for the public sector.

An inspirational finance professional

Aside from your professional qualifications, we’re looking for an inspirational communicator – someone able to motivate large teams and deliver results whatever the politics involved. As adept managerially as you are a technically, it’s vital that you also bring impressive experience of leading change in a complex local government environment.

Embrace the New

If we’re to deliver even better value for money for Newham, the transformation of our financial approach must be delivered efficiently and effectively, at speed. Cement your status as a leading public sector finance professional, and make your mark at the very top of the industry.
