Director of Financial Services
Chelmsford is England’s newest City with a proud and varied heritage, a prosperous and growing economy, strong transport links, brilliant schools and stunning countryside. We’re a high performing, modern and entrepreneurial authority. We have recently appointed our new Chief Executive and are now looking to appoint an exceptional leader to join our corporate leadership team to further build on the considerable success we’ve enjoyed to date.
We have a reputation for excellence both in what we deliver and the way we work and are seeking a strong visible leader who is approachable and open when working with staff at all levels throughout the organisation and externally with partners. However, this alone is not enough; you must also be an ambassador for the place and Council. You will be a member of the corporate leadership team with responsibility for all aspects of finance together with Housing and will need to support the Chief Executive and Management Team in overall leadership of the council.
You will be forward thinking and with fresh new approaches to service delivery by being commercially astute and entrepreneurial.
