Capital Accountant - Local Authority
I am currently recruiting for a Capital Accountant to work with a Council in East London on a contract basis.
The post-holder will coordinate and monitor the capital programme and will be responsible for carrying out and managing the process of business case proposals and Gateway reviews.
You will oversee the monitoring and performance management process of capital schemes and will assist with the year-end process and closing of the capital programme accounts, including capital settlement, allocation of financing, and maintenance of the asset register.
You will also be responsible for collecting and analysing data on programme performance and preparing reports for both internal and external bodies on all aspects of the capital programme.
You will liaise with Service Accountants and project managers, and will report to senior managers and directors.
You will also assist with systems maintenance and reconciliation processes, and will perform reconciliation between the fixed asset register and valuers reports/systems.
It is essential that applicants have previous experience of working as a Capital Accountant in the Public Sector – ideally within a Local Authority.
