Director of Financial Services
3 days left
Right now there is a buzz about Waltham Forest. London’s first Borough of Culture and bursting with energy and opportunity, it is a place people want to live, raise a family and start a business. Since 2010, we have reshaped our Council to deliver savings, improve services and invest in the future.
Looking ahead, our Creating Futures vision is fundamentally changing the way we work, building relationships, connecting people, harnessing our unique opportunities and the power of new technology to create strong, sustainable and self-reliant communities.
Financial grip has been one of our core strengths over the last eight years. Recent independent assessment has strongly endorsed our financial strategy and approach, so now is a great time to come to Waltham Forest and help us enhance our position further. This critical leadership post will help us deliver Creating Futures in Waltham Forest.
Our Director of Financial Services will provide the sound financial management that will underpin the realisation of our vision. Reporting to the Strategic Director of Finance, you will lead on medium term financial planning / strategy, revenue budgeting, capital strategy, statutory accounting and major projects. This is a broad remit with a focus on the delivery and promotion of effective, robust and resilient financial management.
We want people who are at the top of their game, ambitious and aspirational financial leaders with outstanding credentials and a commitment to shaping the best possible future for Waltham Forest and its residents.
