Executive Director of Resources
Enfield Council
Up to c£159,000

Enfield Council is engaged on a unique and exciting journey of transformation that makes us one of the most attractive local authorities in the UK to join right now. We’ve got big ambitions to deliver a lifetime of opportunities for everyone in the borough and we have a plan in place that we believe can inspire and challenge our staff and our residents to make it happen.

We’re future-proofing our strategies and our resources, and that’s where you come in.

As our finance lead (S151) you’ll be responsible for the strategic and effective leadership of vital support services, including finance, transformation, ICT and Procurement, you’ll be a driver for change and improvement across the entire local authority. Advising Cabinet on the allocation of financial and other resources necessary to realise the Council’s aspirations, you’ll provide leadership and direction to the Council’s staff and partners in this high-profile and challenging role. This is more than balancing budgets. This is building a team, realising a vision and creating clarity of direction and purpose for staff at all levels.

You’ll be given the freedom to ensure this work continues with pace and accuracy, inspiring us to build on existing momentum and drive us towards our ultimate objective of becoming and remaining a truly modern council. It takes resilience, strength of character and confidence as well as a proven track record of managing stakeholder relationships to inspire excellent service delivery. Your drive and determination will see you positively working to develop and deliver our regeneration plan - and keep us firmly on track to deliver our vital economic and community objectives.

We have clear values: to be ambitious, make a difference and be caring but also to have a dynamic and supportive senior management team with a strong collective focus on achieving our strategic objectives, and a workforce focused on delivering the best services and support local government can offer.
