Job Description
In St Helens, we are proud of our Borough; linking both industry and innovation to a strong local heritage, sitting in an area of rolling countryside and areas of outstanding natural beauty. Our new leadership team are busy recasting the way we deliver our public services as we continue to transform how we fulfil our community and stakeholder priorities.

There is no better time to join us and become part of our improvement journey and help build our legacy. Now more than ever, we need to drive innovative change across our services, enabling the Council to take the next step in delivering its ambitious agenda and adapting collectively to a changing world, including a significant programme of social care reform to deliver.

We have the opportunity for a talented individual to be part of our team and help deliver our future ambitions.

Supporting the Director of Finance in the provision of financial support to the Integrated Social Care & Health Department and working collaboratively with the senior leadership team, elected members and key stakeholders in promoting a culture of collaboration, the successful candidate will play a key role in progressing the Council’s ambitious plans. The role will be instrumental in taking forward the St Helens response to the Social Care Reforms and the financial leadership thereof, and support market engagement to assure sustainability of the care sector via the Fair Cost of Care proposals. 

A CCAB qualification and experience of financial modelling is essential in providing you with the necessary skills to fulfil the roles, which will be varied and afford the opportunity for you to demonstrate your many qualities, which will include planning and organising workloads and your ability to provide high quality advice to Members and Officers alike.

We encourage applications from all sections of the community to enable us to represent the neighbourhoods in which we serve.

Council employees are required to abide by the ethical standards embodied by the 7 NOLAN principles of conduct in public life. These include selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.

We welcome applications from the BAME community.
