A highly ambitious authority in one of the most economically successful cities in the UK. Exeter City Council has its sights firmly fixed on creating a city that is inclusive, healthy and sustainable.

The Council is building the UK’s first super energy efficient Passivhaus swimming pool and leisure complex, St Sidwell’s Point. We are also working with strategic partners towards our target of becoming a Net Zero Carbon City by 2030. We’re creating pioneering Passivhaus social housing and working with Homes England to deliver 12,000 new homes within the City over the next 20 years through the Liveable Exeter Garden City project. We continue to deliver major projects like these, whilst delivering the day-to-day services that our residents and communities depend on. That makes our Council a hugely exciting place to be.

With more challenges ahead, we need a qualified (or part qualified) accountant to join the Finance team who will support our work. As part of the team, you will be providing high quality financial advice, information, analysis and interpretation to a range of stakeholders.

In support of the Finance Manager General Fund Services, you will be responsible for providing financial support and advice to a range of General Fund Services, including budgeting, revenue and capital budget monitoring, closing the accounts and providing support and advice both general and project specific.

Good IT skills are required and you must be able to work accurately to deadlines. You will need to be able to follow technical instructions and demonstrate a flexible and positive approach along with good communication skills and possess a strong knowledge of financial management techniques. A CCAB (or CIMA) qualification is required (with a progression pay Grade available for part-qualified), the post will automatically progress to Grade J upon full qualification.
