Welcome to Surrey's recruitment page for Finance. With change and transformation at the forefront of our agenda, it is now more important than ever that we recruit the right people for our roles. We're looking for finance professionals who are forward thinking and influential, and able to make a real impact. We invite you to read more about our opportunities below.
Leigh Whitehouse, Executive Director of Resources
Ready for a new challenge?
It's a great time to join us; with a new Community Vision for Surrey and Organisational Strategy, we've made huge strides over the past year, stabilising our finances and developing a transformation programme that will fundamentally change the way we work, for the benefit of Surrey residents.
Led by Rachel Wigley (Director of Finance Insight) and Anna D'Alessandro (Director of Corporate Finance), we have an ambitious Finance Improvement Programme to ensure we have the right financial capability, systems and processes for the future. Key to this is the Finance Academy, a range of learning and development tools equipping finance staff and managers across the organisation with the skills to realise our goal of excellent financial management.
These roles are an opportunity to play a key part in all of this, supporting wholesale organisational transformation and helping to develop the council to one that is recognised as outstanding, and a truly great place to work.
We're looking for fresh ideas and inspiration. Technical skills are of course key, but equally important is the ability to act as a partner to our service departments, to help us in our transformation and income generation, building on solid foundations in our drive to be the best. If you're up for the challenge, we want to hear from you!
