This role is open to remote working meaning you aren't required in the office 5 days a week. We're less about you driving to work and more about us collectively driving down our carbon footprint. We care about how you work rather than where you work; the people rather than the postcode. In support of our people and our greener futures strategies, we'd welcome a conversation with the successful candidate on what remote working may look like for you.
With a new Community Vision for Surrey and Organisational Strategy, we’ve made huge strides over the past year, stabilising our finances and developing a transformation programme that will fundamentally change the way we work, for the benefit of Surrey residents.
Our ambitious Finance Improvement Programme is redefining the way we work as partners with the wider organisation. You will be at the forefront of excellent financial management, transformation and income generation, part of a team working to deliver great services to the community and to ensure our finances are sustainable.
You will provide expert commercial advice and analysis to support the council in the appraisal of new commercial opportunities and in the management of its existing portfolio and trading companies.
A fully qualified accountant, you will have knowledge and expertise in commercial finance. Your sector background is less important to us – what we are looking for are individuals with excellent commercial finance acumen, financial modelling skills, experience of business case preparation and of conducting financial and investment appraisals, combined with strong communication, relationship-building and influencing skills. You will be able to identify solutions that make good commercial sense and have the presentation skills to enable a range of audiences to grasp the key financial issues.
