We’ve got an exciting opportunity available for talented individuals to join our workforce - perhaps this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for? Read on to find out more…
    
Nottingham City Council is known for inclusivity and innovation, and we are continually working around the clock to deliver services for Nottingham’s citizens, visitors and investors.
    
Our aspiration is to make Nottingham a Great City, but to do this we need to be a Great Council, provide Great Services and recruit and develop a Great Workforce.
     
We will value your contributions, promote flexible and modern ways of working, will double your monthly pension contributions, offer a very generous 25-32 days holiday package each year (exclusive of public bank holidays and dependent on length of service) and give you the option to purchase up to 28 days additional holiday tax-free!
   
Nottingham City Council is committed to recruiting a talented workforce that reflects the communities we serve. We are a fair and inclusive employer and welcome applications from people from all backgrounds and with different abilities. We recruit for diversity and value difference.
    
We particularly want to hear from you if you are from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic community, identify within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community (LGBT) and if you are Disabled - these groups of people are underrepresented in our workforce, and we’d like to reflect our local population more through our recruitment processes.
  
We have always been open to flexible working and the COVID-19 pandemic provided us with some new options to work in a completely different way. We welcome a conversation about flexible working at the point of interview.

The Role:
The post holder will provide high quality financial 'business partnering' support and analysis to the business.  This will include the ability to inform and influence business decisions that drives the organisation forward in a fast-paced environment.
  
You will be experienced in forging collaborative working relationships, both internal and external and be able to demonstrate strong analysis and interpretation skills.
  
Previous local government experience is not essential.
    
Our Offer:
In return, we offer a competitive total reward package to applicants.  We are committed to providing colleagues with a work / life balance and this role will be part of our flexible working scheme which includes flexibility on daily start and finish times.
   
We have a range of Works Perks on offer to colleagues.  Nottingham City Council is an award-winning organisation for our total reward package, and this is one element that makes us a worthwhile choice when considering our offer of a Commercial Business Partner.
