We have big plans at Gedling Borough Council and we’re looking for exceptional individuals who can help us deliver them!

Following a transformative restructuring programme, we are looking to recruit to several senior roles. Focusing on being resident centric, commercially minded, data and performance driven we hope to position ourselves as the best Council in the East Midlands growing an environment where residents enjoy the lifestyle they deserve, in a place they are proud of.

We value experience and talent, but we are lean and have no space for passengers. You will need to be hungry to get stuck into the projects that we have and be a visible presence within the workplace.

About the role
Having a proven track record of local government finance should go without saying. What is worth saying though is that the job really is one in which there is opportunity to get to know the business and to contribute to key decisions. You will work with senior and key colleagues to support them in their delivery of service and will genuinely feel that your work is contributing significantly to the completion of projects that will materially improve our residents’ and customers’ lives.

You will undertake both the operational and strategic lead in the processes required to ensure setting of an appropriate budget, working directly with the Portfolio Holder for Finance, Leader of the Council, Senior Leadership Team, Corporate Management Team and the Council’s Section 151 Officer.

You will also provide advice at the appropriate level to Council and its committees, Officers, individual Members and to Controlling Group and Opposition Groups.

A fuller description of the role (job description and person specification) is attached. For further information, please contact

About the Council
You might not have heard of Gedling Borough Council. But if you haven’t, we would be disappointed, and you really should look at the work that we are doing.

Relevant to this post we are actively and vigorously pursuing our list of ambitious major projects including consideration of how we might best continue to deliver environmental, leisure and community services to ensure that our residents can enjoy good physical and mental health; the continued provision of excellent parks and recreational spaces for local people to enjoy; and the on-going work to ensure that our neighbourhoods are safe, modern, clean, healthy and vibrant places to live and work. The list goes on, but you get the idea.

Gedling is an attractive place to live and work, and the Council offices are situated in an award-winning park within easy reach of Nottingham City Centre and rural Nottinghamshire.
