Newcastle City Council is focused on growing the local economy and reforming services to achieve better outcomes for our communities. As we move into recovery and renewal of our great city, it is important that the council helps to shape a clear path and sets out how we as an organisation will contribute to recovery, building on what we have learned throughout the pandemic.

Staff in Financial Services play a crucial role supporting elected Members and managers across the council to respond to the financial challenges we face and achieve vitally important service outcomes for residents and local businesses.

We need highly skilled and professionally trained people to ensure we stay on top of the challenges we face, and to make the most of the opportunities that are emerging.

We have two positions available, a senior accountant post and an accountant post both within the Financial Management team.

To be successful you will need excellent financial, technical and communication skills, as well as a demonstrable ability to work well both individually and as part of a team.

In return for your skills, attributes & knowledge you will be joining a values-based organisation which prides itself on employee engagement, an excellent employment package and a rewarding career with an innovative service.

Both roles come with a highly competitive benefits package including salary, flexible working, a hybrid model of home and office based working and continuous professional development. In addition to this we support our people inside and out of work - offering a very competitive pension scheme, employee support programmes, and access to a number of salary sacrifice schemes.

Interviews will be held virtually using Microsoft Teams.
