Finance

The Finance team is based at our Culham site and our main task is to ensure that the organisation works efficiently and effectively with the financial resources provided to us by the Police Authority. This centres around providing support to budget holders and covers all aspects of accounting from preparing budgets and forecasts to producing monthly performance reports and annual statutory accounts. We also undertake accounts payable and treasury functions in-house.

All of this means that there is no such thing as a typical day. We need to be flexible and imaginative to provide creative solutions to support our budget holders and their delivery of corporate objectives. This can involve looking at new ways of working, establishing processes and developing new strategies to cope with different challenges.

It is a very supportive environment and we encourage our staff to work towards relevant professional qualifications. As well as your financial skills, you will depend on your ability to communicate with people at different levels and to convey complex information clearly and simply. If you are willing to be accountable for your work, and have a real focus on quality, accuracy and meeting deadlines, then this could be the team for you.
