Corporate Director Finance and Governance

£130,090 - £159,360

Birmingham City Council’s Corporate Director Finance and Governance must be

one of the most exciting Finance roles in the public sector, in an organisation which

has had its struggles in recent years but remains one of most entrepreneurial and

exciting places to work in local government. Outside London the city is the youngest

and most diverse in Europe – it is the leading city in the West Midlands working

collaboratively with its neighbours in the combined authority and with the regional


Its financial challenges are the same as others in local government but on a

significantly larger scale and in an environment with huge challenges and massive

opportunities. Your ability to support the Leader of the Council and the whole

Council’s elected members in financial strategy will be key to the future of the

authority, and we need anyone who takes this role to be a consummate corporate

player concentrating on building a strong financial base through a strong financially

aware corporate team. Your ambition to make Birmingham one of the leading

councils in the country in terms of financial strategy and innovation will be key, as

will your focus and resilience in delivering continuous improvement.

Your key responsibilities are those you might anticipate but one of the interesting

parts of the role, as part of the Council’s focus on financial innovation, is the

exceptional network of companies which have helped build Birmingham’s approach

to regeneration and commercialisation. We have also signalled in your title your key

role in the corporate governance of the authority, working closely with the Chief

Executive on that and all the major issues facing the Council.
