Director of Financial Transactions

Slough Borough Council
Slough, Berkshire
Up to £102,000 (including pending pay award)

Slough Borough Council is never far from the headlines at the moment - the challenges are well documented, but there’s been much less coverage of Slough’s recovery and improvement journey. There is a new corporate plan in place outlining Slough’s commitment to residents, including a determination to close the healthy life expectancy gap and improve the life chances of the borough’s children and young people. There is also a new top team in place – all focussed on turning the council around. Slough has already made some great progress but there are still mountains to climb. That is why the council is looking for an extraordinary group of senior leaders to join them for what will undoubtedly be the biggest and also the most rewarding challenge of their careers.


The new Director of Financial Transactions will play a key role in keeping the council on its current improvement trajectory and will do so by leading a customer-centric approach across the services they are responsible for. They will lead all aspects of the council’s transactional and client facing financial services including council tax, business rates, benefits, housing debt, adult social care assessment, invoicing and debt recovery, appointeeship and deputyship, welfare benefit advice and support and enforcement of debt. They will have responsibility for more than 100 staff and will ensure the council collects significant income streams from individuals and businesses while ensuring that vulnerable residents receive the finance and support that they need.
