Central London / Hybrid-working

No ordinary finance role.

No ordinary authority.

The City of London Corporation is like no other local authority – and our finances are just as unique. Older than Parliament, we serve the heart of the capital. Respected, trusted and influential, we can offer remarkable opportunities to develop, network and learn. As Assistant Director of Strategic Finance, you’ll be on the national stage, part of a huge transformational journey, building your name and career.

In this key strategic role, you’ll deputise for the Financial Services Director and lead our corporate accounting teams. We’ll look to you for annual revenue and capital budgets, and the financial statement of accounts. You’ll also perform dynamic financial modelling and create our Medium Term Financial Plan.

Your work will bring you into contact with Members and senior leaders who’ll be looking to you for guidance. You must therefore be a confident financial advisor with proven technical expertise. Qualified, experienced and a strategic thinker, you’ll relish complex challenges such as major capital projects. In fact, you’ll thrive on the opportunity to approach issues with ambition and creativity. Calm, articulate and resilient, you’ll be an excellent manager who explains complex matters clearly.

With the option to work from home two/three days per week, you’ll enjoy a good work/life balance. You’ll also get the buzz of being part of an organisation that’s embedded in London’s history – and helping to shape its future.
