We have a new financial services structure in place that supports the Councils ambition to excel in everything it does and lead the way in providing the best services as part of our outcomes approach to service delivery and finance known as Future Ealing.
There are two key roles that will play a significant part in the finance team, both reporting the head of strategic finance:

In addition to being a fully qualified accountant, with strong technical skills ideally developed from your experience in a corporate finance environment, you will have the essential strategic and political awareness that this role requires, allowing you to work collaboratively with the chief finance officer, directors and executive directors.

You will be a confident and capable people manager who exemplifies effective relationship management and is committed to team development, shaped by quality service delivery and customer outcomes.
