The Valuation Tribunal Service (VTS) is a statutory, non-departmental public body, with the responsibility for the administration of Council Tax and Non-Domestic Rating appeals.
We are looking to recruit a Finance Administrator into our Finance Team. We are keen to offer this position as a development opportunity for someone looking to take their first steps in a finance environment, giving you the chance to start in a Finance role and then progress and develop within both the VTS and within your career. We will provide expert support and access to industry recognised qualifications to prepare you with the skills needed to develop into a well-rounded professional with excellent career prospects and with the expectation that you will eventually become fully qualified in the future. Our longer-term aim would be for you to make the transition into a Finance Assistant or Finance Officer position once you have the right qualifications and experience.
This is a diverse role with an initial focus on developing your skills in accounts payable and purchase ledger processes, as well as relationship management, but you will have opportunities to get involved in other areas and projects within our small multifunctional finance team.
The ideal candidate will be someone either looking to start at ‘entry-level’ or who has some basic experience of working in the finance environment and who has started studying for their finance qualification. To be successful you will be expected to have excellent attention to detail and have a can-do attitude. The salary will be from £25,048 to £31,293. Progression through the salary range depends upon successful performance and progress with qualifications. Initially this is a 2 year fixed term position but with the possibility to extend or become permanent if successful during that period.
To apply for this role, you should complete the attached application form and return it to us via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than 23:55 on Sunday 15 May. The successful applicant will be on probation for a period of six months. Performance within the period will be assessed in accordance with the VTS’s Probation Policy. Unsatisfactory performance during this period may result in the termination of the appointment.
We do not accept CV's as an application. If you would like to be considered for this Finance Administrator position, you must complete the attached applicaiton form.
