Two Councils One Team

We’re delighted you’re interested in our new Chief Accountant vacancy at Eastbourne Borough and Lewes District Councils. You will be joining us at an exciting time where you can make a real personal impact on our future success.

Over the past couple of years Eastbourne Borough and Lewes District Councils have come together creating a progressive partnership: two sovereign councils each with a unique identity and a shared vision of the future. Through joining their workforce and fostering a modern, collaborative culture, they are serving their residents in a more customer focussed and cost-effective way.

This process of joint transformation has seen the two councils move to a single shared officer team, helping to protect services in a time of reducing budgets, realising savings, and ensuring a modern, high quality and resilient professional team. At the same time the strategic profile of both organisations within the region is set to grow. As part of this programme, they have already appointed a number strong Finance professional. To continue their momentum and shape a new shared service, they are now looking to appoint to a pivotal role within the Technical Accounting team.

We have already recruited into a number of exciting new senior opportunities in Finance to continue our momentum and shape a new joint service, and we are now looking to appoint to a pivotal role within the Financial Reporting team.

We want to be fit for the future, provide excellent and efficient services for our residents and businesses, and achieve financial self-sufficiency, pursuing opportunities to generate income. We want to hear from you if you have a positive ‘can do’ attitude and see yourself at the heart of an organisation that believes implicitly in transformation and putting our residents and businesses first in everything we do. If you would like to find out more about these exciting opportunities, we would very much like to hear from you. Good luck with your application.
