Director of Finance

Westminster City Council
Up to £150,000

Westminster is home to more than 250,000 residents and 50,000 businesses who welcome over 28 million visitors every year. Our diverse communities, thriving high streets, night-time economy and international tourism require 24/7 attention. This is an exceptional job at the very heart of our capital city, ensuring that we use our resources creatively to enable our residents and communities to thrive.


In a Fairer Westminster, we want to tackle the inequalities across the city and will be looking to our Director of Finance to support the Executive Director of Finance and Resources (S151) and corporate colleagues to ensure this underpins everything we do.   Ensuring high quality financial management delivers outstanding front-line services is a given but you will also be accountable for financial support and advice on Westminster’s billion-pound capital programme including significant housing development schemes and other high-profile projects.

Your visible leadership and commitment to maintaining an empowering and supportive environment for finance and non-finance colleagues will position you as a trusted collaborator right across the council, and you will be a Director recognised for their contribution to our equalities, diversity and inclusion agenda.
