Finance and Accountancy Trainee
£18,795 - £19,945 per annum
Fixed term for 3 years
Newcastle City Council is focused on growing the local economy and reforming services to achieve better outcomes for our communities. We have succeeded in bringing the Great Exhibition of the North to Newcastle / Gateshead, progressed the regeneration of Stephenson Quarter and Science Central, delivered the highest number of new houses for decades and embedded our Family Insights service to better meet family needs.
Staff in Financial Services are at the heart of helping elected Members and managers across the council respond to the financial challenges we face in achieving these and other outcomes. Financial systems and processes are being transformed to ensure they are fit for purpose, and we are increasingly focusing our efforts on providing support, advice and insight to help managers manage the financial resources they are responsible for.
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 an opportunity at Trainee Accountant level for a highly motivated individual. 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.
If you wish to discuss this opportunity further, then please call Judith Savage, Team Leader on 0191 2117514 or email: Judith.firstname.lastname@example.org
