Enfield Council is a highly ambitious authority, leading on the development of 10,000 homes in Meridian Water and regeneration of its social housing and industrial estates. It is also a great place to work with a very friendly culture – collaborative and supportive, engendering innovation and change, with strong travel links into Central London.

As government support has fallen away, local government has needed to adapt. Staff need new skills to adapt to the fast-paced environment in which we now operate. Enfield Council has recognised that the traditional local government positions do not reflect these needs.

Finance & Commercial has reviewed its structure to strengthen career pathways and add to the team. We are cutting out transactional activities to focus on value-added work. We are developing an exciting training programme to harness the abilities of staff so they can maximise their opportunities, both for themselves and local residents.

Finance & Commercial is searching for ambitious accountants who want to enjoy a varied and interesting workload, as it looks to transform to support Enfield’s ambitions. We are looking for people who relish challenging the status quo, enjoy building financial models and having thought-provoking and challenging conversations.

There are highly rewarding senior positions to lead on regeneration and the statutory accounts, as well as a new tier of accountant roles across the function to support service-decision making and financial reporting.

Further details on these roles are on the Business Partnering, Capital & Major Projects and Corporate pages.

If you are looking for a change, want to make a difference, don’t hesitate to contact one of us.
