Apprentice Trainee CIPFA Accountant 60865 FNAE

County Hall, Norwich

£22,183 to £24,491 per annum (Scale F)

37 hours per week

Permanent contract

 

Norfolk County Council is a top tier local authority providing vital public services to approximately 900,000 residents. 

 

We are seeking to recruit a trainee CIPFA accountant - an individual committed to becoming a finance professional over the next 3 years and displaying the potential to become a future manager.

 

This post provides an excellent opportunity to work in a large central finance department supporting all areas of a large and complex organisation which is going through a period of significant transformational change.  Training and study will take place via a level 7 apprenticeship. You must show commitment to studying and attend all training throughout the apprenticeship, and time will be provided for this during working hours. 

 

You will be mentored by colleagues during placements across the finance function, including statutory accounting, financial project, budget monitoring and audit, each lasting approximately 9 months.  You will be adaptable, working in different teams, supporting non-financial and financial colleagues at all levels within the organisation.  As your skills develop through the apprenticeship, you will be given greater levels of responsibility and autonomy.  Pay in this role will increase as the individual’s knowledge and skills develop.

 

You will be expected to display good numerical and communications skills, IT literacy and problem-solving ability.  Full details of the job role are set out in the job description.

 

We encourage a blended approach to office and home-based work as part of our Smarter Working plans.  All our office-based roles are currently working from home and we ask that you arrange to have in place good Broadband connectivity.  Our technology platform and equipment is first class and will enable you to connect and collaborate remotely.  When offices re-open your office base will be County Hall, Norwich, and we anticipate that working remotely and independently will continue to be a feature of this role, including your study commitments. 

 

For an informal discussion regarding this vacancy, please contact Howard Jones, Corporate Accounting Manager, on 01603 222832 or at howard.jones@norfolk.gov.uk.

 

Shortlisted candidates will be asked to take numerical and verbal tests, with on-line interviews programmed to take place towards the end of January 2021.
