Senior Finance Assistant (2 POSTS) – Exchequer Purchasing Support

Derbyshire County Council are looking for 2 highly motivated, customer focused individuals to join the new centralised purchasing support team in the Exchequer Financial Services section.

Exchequer Financial Services controls the Councils main income and expenditure streams and acts as a key internal control. The finance function across the Council was recently reviewed resulting in a new operating model that centralised all departmental finance teams within CST. The new structure has adopted the three key principles of simplify, standardise and share and will allow it to provide a more enterprising one council approach to its service delivery, allowing it to capture efficiencies from across the organisation. This role will play a pivotal part in delivering the new centralised purchasing support team function that will serve all the Council’s departmental service areas.

There will be significant business and cultural changes that the role will help develop and embed. The post will work with departmental service teams to introduce and embed new purchasing systems and business processes. The successful candidates will need to work collaboratively with the existing Exchequer Teams, the SAP Core Business Systems upgrade project team and Procurement to provide a dedicated resource to deliver the changes.

At Derbyshire County Council we believe that hard work and commitment should be rewarded, we offer a package that will ensure you feel supported and valued including:

  • Flexible working hours.
  • Some remote working in accordance with the Council’s Modern Ways of Working policy.
  • Generous annual leave entitlement.
  • Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme.
  • A comprehensive wellbeing package.
  • Discount on leisure centre memberships.

For an informal and confidential chat about the post, please contact Brenda Smithurst by emailing brenda.smithurst@derbyshire.gov.uk or by telephone on 01629 539294
