Finance Services

Finance Services is critical to ensuring that our commitments are managed and maintained in line with our key priorities. Over the last two years, the service has been restructured to ensure a clear focus on delivering a high quality and timely financial support to all service areas.

The Department employs 40 staff within three main sections:

  • Financial Services (provision of financial advice and support to members and officers to meet statutory and service including accounting, budgeting, taxation, treasury management, insurance, payroll, risk management and business continuity activities).
  • Revenues (billing and recovery of Council Tax and Business Rates of around 4,000 Business Rate payers and 57,000 Council Tax Payers, amounting to approximately £90m Council Tax and £66m in Business Rates).
  • Internal Audit (giving professional advice on audit, risk management and governance matters and providing assurance on the adequacy of management controls).

Our finance team offers candidates real scope to influence and challenge the development and delivery of our service business plans, ensure a commercial approach and add value.
