About us

Camden is building somewhere everyone can thrive, by making our borough the best place to live, work, study and visit. Because, we’re not just home to UK’s fast-growing economy. We’re home to the most important conversations happening today. The Finance service in Camden has an ambitious vision to ensure delivery of a high-quality, value- added service with excellent financial controls. We will do this through an exciting journey of change, challenge, and innovation.

Accurate accounting is vital to the Council in financial reporting and supporting effective decision making and you will make sure that our financial data is the very best it can be. We are looking for a Financial Reporting Accountant to work within in the Financial Reporting Team, to support with the financial year end process, Statement of Accounts production and liaison with External Auditors; and also be the department’s primary contact for VAT accounting. 

About you 

In this role you will already have relevant subject knowledge and currently working towards a CCAB qualification. This covers accounting principles, financial systems and general financial best practice. 

You will have very strong IT skills including advanced Excel and financial systems experience. 

You will make the most of the software’s functionality to streamline reconciliation processes and spend time on value-adding activities.

You will be equipped to build strong working relationships: it’s important that you can communicate clearly and explain issues to a range of non-specialist staff. Above all, you’ll be committed to strong financial management, working alongside colleagues within and outside the Council.

The postholder will also play an active role to support production of the Statement of Accounts, taking responsibility for delivering elements within the Statement of Accounts and Whole Government Accounts, ensuring high quality working papers that meet the standards required by external audit, and working within strict reporting timeframes.
