Graduate Trainee Accountant
Our vision is to be a district which combines a strong, sustainable economy with a great quality of life. To achieve this we need the very best people working for us - passionate, confident and flexible. If this sounds like you, why not join us through our higher-level apprenticeship programme.
We are looking to appoint a newly qualified graduate to work in our Accountancy/Internal Audit teams to study for the Association of Chartered Accountants (ACA) qualification.
Kirklees Council is an organisation with an annual gross controllable budget of approximately £1billion. This role offers a fantastic opportunity to work alongside a Finance team with a wealth of experience on a broad range of areas including:
- Strategic and directorate financial planning and advice, support to individual budget holders with budget preparation and monitoring, provision of the Council’s principal accounting systems, and preparation of the Council’s statutory accounts.
- Treasury management (ensuring that borrowing costs are kept to a minimum whilst earning interest from cash balances).
- Internal Audit (providing the Council with assurance that our internal financial and business procedures and processes are robust and provide a sound level of control).
We want to help you get the work-life balance right, offering flexible working and options for home based working where we can.
