Job vacancy: Director of Resources & Section 151 Officer

7th January 2019 / News archive

Chippenham is one of the largest town Councils operating in the
town and parish sector, in fact we operate in a similar manner to a
small district council. We have a population of over 40,000 a revenue
budget of over £3.5M, we have over 100 employees and volunteers.
We operate in a two tier county unitary setting with no district or
borough council, we are the second tier of local government.
As the council’s S151 Officer and statutory ‘Responsible Finance
Officer’, you will form part of the council’s Corporate Leadership Team.
This is great opportunity to join a small council that punches well
above its weight and would provide a great stepping stone to Director
role in a principal council or a Chief Executive role in the town and
parish sector. You’ll be a chartered accountant and have membership
of a professional body such as CIFPA. We have an exciting four year
Corporate Strategic Plan that will take us through to 2022 and an
overarching vision of, ‘improving the quality of town life’.

If you would like a confidential discussion about this role
please call our Chief Executive, Mark Smith on 01249 446699.
