We currently have opportunities for you to work in the finance team within a high-performing council during an exciting time. We have been transforming the way in which we offer financial services to budget managers and external customers.

Welcome from Gary Fielding, corporate director, strategic resources

 

North Yorkshire is a great county with people and businesses who are proud to live here, proud of what they do and of who they are; the people who work for and represent the County Council are just the same. We are passionate about the place that we work in and the people for whom we work. We are proud about what we have achieved as a Council; confident about the services that we provide and ambitious for the future even through the difficult times of austerity.

 

We currently have opportunities for you to work in the finance team within a high-performing council during an exciting time. We have been transforming the way in which we offer financial services to budget managers and external customers.

 

As a shortlisted finalist in the national public finance innovation awards (including finance team of the year), the finance team provides a centre of expertise in commercial work and financial modelling, and we contribute to the council's commercial agenda by supporting services to be commercially aware and identifying opportunities for us to generate additional income streams.

 

One of the greatest challenges we have is to deliver a balanced budget that protects frontline services, whilst making sure that we are in good shape to deal with present and future priorities. We have simplified and standardised many of our processes and ways of working across the council and shared these with our partners. We know we need to make even more changes. Our approach to this is to keep our customers at the heart of all our services and to make it possible for them to make choices and to self-serve in accessing many of our services.

 

If you have the desire and dedication to work and develop your career in local government finance, we would like to hear from you.

Thank you for your interest in these posts and we look forward to receiving your CV.
