Are you brilliant with numbers but don't just want to be one? We are looking for an enthusiastic Team Manager and player that will not just help us balance the books but play a key role in helping us calculate the best way for West Suffolk to achieve its vision and support our communities.

This role combines a high level of technical expertise with multi-tier management and proactive support in the day-to-day running of the transactional and regulatory team within the wider finance team.

You will provide high quality strategic advice and direction on financial strategies enabling services to make well-informed decisions and work closely with services in a business partner capacity. You will be an expert in capital, treasury management, VAT, tax, investments, year-end processes and cash flow management.

You will be CCAB/ACCA/CIMA qualified (or equivalent) and a strong people manager. You will have excellent attention to detail and an effective communicator with both internal and external stakeholders. We are looking for someone who responds positively to change and can manage a diverse workload with conflicting deadlines.

In return, we can offer you our benefits package which includes discounts on supermarkets and high street shops, cashback on holidays, childcare vouchers, and money off household bills, together with a competitive salary and pension scheme.

We have flexible working arrangements, learning and development opportunities and generous annual leave entitlement.

* Potentially rising to £50,000 through annual performance review awards.

We are committed to equal opportunities in employment and to safeguarding the welfare of vulnerable people. We expect all staff and volunteers to share these commitments.

With effect from 1 April 2019 we will become a single council and will be known as West Suffolk Council.
