Dacorum Borough Council is a district Council in West Hertfordshire covering the towns of Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted and Tring and the surrounding areas.

We are an ambitious and forward-thinking Council, committed to working in partnership to create a borough which enables the communities of Dacorum to thrive and prosper. Since 2012 we have delivered over £8 million of savings, while also increasing performance and satisfaction across key services. The Council has an ambitious regeneration programme and has made significant investment within the borough. We are building our own housing, as well as investing in improving existing properties.

The Council's main offices are newly built and located in Hemel Hempstead, just outside the M25 and only a 25-minute train journey from Central London. We offer staff flexible working arrangements, including home-working, together with a range of other benefits.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our highly motivated, strong performing Financial Planning and Analysis team, operating within a corporate culture of robust and forward-thinking financial management. As a team, we strive for better ways of working, drive efficiency and ensure value for money.

If you no longer want to be a small cog in a big wheel, really want to get involved and feel you could make a positive impact, this is the post for you. Qualified CCAB (or equivalent), or working towards your qualification, you will provide strategic financial advisory, planning and support to colleagues across the Council. You will need excellent analytical and organisational skills to ensure accurate and relevant financial information is provided in a timely fashion. You will work with a range of internal and external stakeholders, making excellent communications skills essential. An ability to work at pace within a setting of competing priorities and demands is also essential.

In return, the Council offers an attractive benefits package including generous holiday entitlement, membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme, flexible working patterns and access to training and development opportunities.

A check will be undertaken with the Disclosure and Barring Service to ensure that the successful candidate for the above post has no relevant convictions.
