Executive Recruitment


Thank you for your interest in the Deputy Chief Finance Officer position. This is a key role that will provide strategic financial leadership for the Council. We are a borough undergoing regeneration and improvements in place, to create a physical space that meets the aspirations of our residents. We are also a borough that sees strength in greater partnership working and we have recently created an integrated commissioning organisation, between health and social care, and a local care organisation.

You will report to the recently appointed Executive Director of Finance and be a key member of the wider corporate leadership team, contributing to the delivery of our strategic goals. This is a unique role working as part of an integrated team and the wider Greater Manchester footprint, and it will be critical that the successful candidate is able to build relationships with partners and stakeholders. Strong financial management of Council resources will be crucial, using finance as an enabler for positive economic, population health and wider social outcomes.

The post holder will also provide strategic leadership across the wide range of Council services and responsibilities, such as One Public Estate, the housing delivery programme, managing the Housing Revenue Account and supporting strategic regeneration programmes across the borough.  Working with colleagues across Greater Manchester, including at the Combined Authority, you will be crucial in capitalising on opportunities within the region.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about improving outcomes for residents, and who truly believes in the positive benefits that can be achieved through collaboration.  Bringing a wealth of experience of local government finance, we are looking for an inspirational leader who can support the creation of a cohesive ‘one organisation’ approach.

We hope that you enjoy exploring this recruitment website and finding out more about our exciting journey, our foundations, our ambitions, our values and this unique opportunity to play a fundamental role in Bury.

We look forward to meeting you during the process.
