I am recruiting an experienced interim for one of my key Local Authority clients – the role is an interim Principal Accountant focussing on Capital and Treasury, and is for a 6 month period initially.

To secure the role, you will be able to demonstrate prior experience of fixed asset accounting and reporting, ideally with prior knowledge of Real Asset Management (RAM) software. The role will support the delivery of the wider aspects of the closure of accounts process ensuring adherence to relevant regulation, guidance and legislation, which you will also have experience of in a Local Government setting.

You will be required to support the coordination of the production of the Council's Statement of Accounts, including capital accounts, financial instruments and other Treasury activity, as well as supporting the corporate team to respond to various technical queries from both internal and external audit.

You will also be required to work on regular operational duties for the Council's Treasury Management requirements.

If you have a strong Local Government background and feel you can come in and hit the ground running in this key role, then please get in touch as interviews will be this week
