Unrivalled opportunity… 

Barking and Dagenham has the most untapped potential for growth in the capital, with excellent accessibility. It will be London’s next big growth story, delivering 50,000 new homes and 20,000 new jobs over the next twenty years.

Captured in its vision, Ambition 2020, the Council is committed to exploiting its growth potential and playing its strategic role in London to deliver for its community.  With the drive to become a first choice service provider for its customers, the Council is changing the way it operates in the delivery of its services with the creation of a new vehicle, Barking & Dagenham Trading Partnership Ltd with two subsidiaries We Fix it Ltd & BD Together Limited. This new, Council wholly owned company and structure, will enable Barking and Dagenham to leverage financial benefit and create the investment required for employment and skills development opportunities for local residents.

The scale of our ambition…

…has no limits, but requires sustainable success, creating growth opportunities as well as delivering products and services our customers’ desire. Building on the Council’s long and proud record of support and partnership in the provision of quality public services, we will continuously improve and revitalise these functions to deliver excellence by providing high quality and competitively priced services, in less traditional, more efficient and innovative ways - responding flexibly to market opportunities. 

Leading the scale of our ambition… 

As Group Finance Director, your leadership and commercial acumen will help to lead a highly motivated workforce in shaping a future that builds on our strengths. With a background and experience of transitioning organisations through either mergers and acquisitions or major transformational change, you will create a commercial focus for delivering new and improved services in the context of a fast-paced changing Borough.

Supporting the Chief Executive, in ensuring the Company achieves its objectives and delivers on its commitments, you will be accountable for the financial management and administration of the company, ensuring its systems and processes are fit for purpose. This will not be a small endeavour - you will be dealing with large, complex deals and working closely with the Board, Councillors, and the wider Council to deliver services for the Borough.

Closing date for applications is: Wednesday 21st March 2018
