Over the last few years Newark and Sherwood District Council has transformed the way it works in response to financial challenges from reduced funding. Rather than just focussing on cutting spending, we have reshaped the organisation to make it more business focussed and introduced different vehicles to deliver efficiencies and improve performance. By taking these steps we have created a strong financial position with a flexible and dedicated workforce delivering district residents the excellent Council services they deserve.
We are now recruiting for an Assistant Accountant who will report to the Senior Accountant. You will be responsible for the production of budgets and monitoring actual spend for the Council’s Capital programme or part of the Revenue account, together with assisting in the administration of the Council’s financial ICT systems and working in a team responsible for administering the Council’s Treasury Management function.
The Council is committed to building and maintaining a flexible, resilient and responsive workforce, who can support the needs of our residents.
Experience in the preparation and monitoring of budgets is essential along with the ability to meet strict deadlines and prioritise workloads.
You must possess an AAT qualification with the appropriate experience.
We offer a competitive salary, enrolment in the local government pension scheme, flexible hours, hybrid working, a generous annual leave entitlement that increases with service, a whole host of family-friendly benefits, 1 days’ paid volunteering leave, free staff car parking* and £10 gym membership at one of our four gyms in the district. You will be working with a professional, committed and experienced team who are passionate about supporting us to deliver the objectives as outlined in our Community Plan
