Job Ref:  13103
Employer:  Christchurch City Council
Job Type:  Permanent Full Time
Christchurch Central, Christchurch, New Zealand (Show on map)

Are you interested in working for a large organisation which is driven by a culture of success, opportunity for all and collaboration? If you're a detail-focused accountant who also sees the "big picture" and is articulate when it comes to writing and presenting financial policy, we're glad we've sparked your interest.

Christchurch City Council is one of the largest employers in South Island. This opportunity to be our Manager of Funds & Financial Policy is perfect for you if you can combine some experience in debt-related treasury accounting with Policy management in non-treasury areas, and enjoy working with a diverse group of people including senior leaders and elected members. 

Ideally, you'll have public sector experience (particularly with local government and rating legislation), and you may be looking for a change of scenery and way of life. A career in Christchurch combines the opportunities of a big city with a tight knit community feel, without the long commutes and the high cost of living. Here at Council, we offer ongoing development and career progression opportunities.

This role is critical for both setting our revenues and controlling our borrowing costs; but equally, where there are changes that need to be made to financial policies, you'll be proactive in coming up with recommendations for our elected members. With one direct report, you will be responsible for managing and accounting for our debt and financial investments (including hedging instruments), setting policies and forecasts for our rates income (including oversight of the three-yearly General Rates Revaluation process), and ensuring that all of our revenue and financing policies are properly developed and legally compliant. You will be supported by our Rates and Legal teams. Training in treasury management will be provided if required, and our real focus is on you being an experienced accountant who is skilled in the art of Policy.

If you're someone who loves to share ideas and work in conjunction with other areas of the business, you'll fit right in. Our Financial Management unit has a willingness to help others and everyone is prepared to pitch in and support their peers when the opportunities arise. You'll be part of a wider management team which is ready to provide advice and look at things with a fresh pair of eyes. 

With the work that we do, we're able to achieve the best results for the wider organisation and our community. This is a busy and interesting role and is perfect if you're looking to advance to a senior level in your career.
