Ref: GLA3367

The GLA is looking for a financial professional to undertake a new management role in its internal finance unit, following the devolution of functions to the Mayoralty in recent years.

Working to the Finance Manager (Corporate), you will line manage four members of staff and be adept at:

  • Working with senior managers to deliver their budget responsibilities;
  • Presenting complex financial advice to non-finance professionals clearly and robustly; and
  • Assuming responsibility for technically complex areas of the budget.

You will have full membership of a professional accountancy body, experience of budgeting – and the types of projects which underpin those budgets – in the public or private sectors in a similar role, and would see this as an opportunity to extend your experience in a challenging and high profile public sector organisation.

You will also have a good degree of political awareness and be adept at managing a small team of professionals working to tight deadlines and liaising with colleagues at all levels in the organisation, including Deputy Mayors and Executive Directors. 

We are committed to being an inclusive employer and we are happy to consider flexible working arrangements. We would welcome applications from candidates who are seeking part time work as this role is open to job share.

In addition to a good salary package, we offer an attractive range of benefits including 30 days’ annual leave, interest free season ticket loan, interest free bicycle loan, childcare voucher scheme and a career average pension scheme.

If you have a question about the role or the recruitment process, then please contact a member of the recruitment team via email on glajobs@london.gov.uk quoting reference number GLA3367.
