Are you interested in a career in public sector finance? Or perhaps you want to develop your existing skills and challenge yourself within a successful, ever growing organisation?

As a large organisation with a commitment to developing our staff and plenty of opportunities for progression, we're looking for a confident and enthusiastic individual with the right skills and a numerical mind to join our Operational Finance Team as a Senior Finance Adviser.

This is an exciting time to join the County Council as we embark on the next phase of our ambitious journey to transform our services and deliver further savings by 2021. We've already successfully delivered savings of around £340 million since 2008, while maintaining strong performance and positioning ourselves nationally as a major provider of shared public services.

The Operational Finance Team has a key role to play in the County Council's transformation programme, and as part of the team, you will be involved in helping budget managers to ensure that they are able to deliver their services to residents across Hampshire within the resources available, as well as inputting to the transformation programme and providing financial support to our partners.

With a finance background (ideally in local government) you'll need good accounting knowledge, IT skills, be AAT qualified (or equivalent), have good communication skills, and be highly numerate.

We are looking for someone who can balance attention to detail whilst being able to look at the wider picture and who is willing to develop personally and professionally through continuous training and development.

Initiative, a self-starting approach, and the ability to prioritise a demanding workload in a fast paced and changing environment are vital for this role, to achieve the best outcomes for the organisation and for the residents of Hampshire.

The benefits of working with us:

Adopting leading edge digital practice combined with a skilled and competent workforce are key aspects of the Council's strategy to future-proof its services. We are keen to develop our staff, providing all necessary training, and as a large, diverse organisation can offer many opportunities for career progression for the right candidate.

The salary range for this role is £32,752 - £36,862 depending on your level of experience. You would have the opportunity to join the local government pension scheme, and be entitled to 25 days annual leave per annum plus bank holidays. In addition, there is a wider benefits package at Hampshire County Council that includes flexible working hours, family friendly policies, interest free travel loans and discounts, and employee support. https://www.hants.gov.uk/jobs/whychooseus/benefits
