Accountant 59948 FNPE

County Hall, Norwich

£42,720 to £46,635 per annum

37 hours per week

Permanent contract

We are recruiting an Accountant to join the Budgeting and Accounting team within Norfolk County Council. This is part of the Financial Management Team and provides the budgeting and accounting function to all services in the organisation. NCC is a large and complex organisation and is going through a period of significant transformational change. This is an exciting opportunity to join a busy and pro-active team who are looking to make a real difference to support NCC through the change that it needs to make and to ensure that taxpayers can be assured that they are receiving value for money.

Although the role sits within the finance structure, the Budgeting and Accounting teams work with specific services to support both the day to day budgeting and accounting requirements of the Council, as well as transformational change projects. The post is a generic role and could be assigned to support any NCC service(s) to meet the business need. However, it is anticipated that the successful candidate will support Adult Social Care.

You will be an experienced Accountant with excellent communication skills who is able to demonstrate sound financial judgement, is able to plan and prioritise effectively and is able to build constructive working relationships with both financial and non-financial individuals at all levels within the organisation.

You will be expected to provide:

  • management accounting functions including periodic elements and ad hoc support
  • financial accounting functions to support the closure of NCC accounts and provision of statutory information
  • analysis of complex financial data, alongside appropriate non-financial data, to identify appropriate supporting evidence for advice and judgement
  • development of financial management within the organisation
  • management and development of a small team of accounting staff within the framework of the wider team

All our office-based roles are currently working from home as part of our Smarter Working plans and to support the health and safety of all our colleagues. We anticipate that working remotely will be a key feature of this role and when offices re-open your office base will be County Hall.
