You will hold a professional accountancy qualification with evidence of up-to-date knowledge of treasury management, reporting standards and Financial Legislation. You will also be able to demonstrate recent successful collaborative working across multi-disciplinary teams and with external stakeholders

In return, we offer a competitive salary, hybrid working as well as access to a local Government Pension Scheme and the chance to be part of an organisation where you can really make a difference.
