A new opportunity to join a large Local Government organisation on an interim basis to lead the finance function for Development, Property and Infrastructure. Working in an Authority with huge and complex investment plans as well as a significant metropolitan infrastructure, your financial stewardship and management experience will come to the fore in a challenging but exciting environment.

As well as public funds there will be aspects of PFI work, contracts performance management and a host of mandatory functions which need robust financial controls and decisive, thoughtful planning.
