Build your legacy at Basildon

Here at Basildon Council, we create opportunities to improve lives every single day. We look after around 172,000 people, all living and working across our towns, and Borough. It’s our job to make sure they thrive. We do that by being ambitious and dynamic with our approach to service, and overcoming challenges with creative solutions. We work in this way across the whole council, making it a place where your career can thrive too.

As the Project & Commercial Accountant, you’ll have a crucial role in providing robust financial advice on all corporate and service developments, in order to support effective decision-making arrangements. Developing and refining the Councils MTFS and annual budget setting, we are looking for an accomplished finance professional to ensure the effective delivery of our Corporate Plan.

A fully qualified finance professional (CCAB or equivalent) with extensive knowledge in commercial finance and accounting within a local government or similar setting, you’ll need to have a strong customer focus in service delivery and design, while also being able to effectively manage complex service budgets, risks and performance.

We’re accessible to London and other parts of Essex, thanks to our great car and rail connections. We offer competitive holidays, which increase with your length of service, and a pension scheme. You can also get childcare vouchers, discounted rates for health, fitness and local stores – and free parking!
