Then this is the scheme for you.

Gain broad exposure

Working across your local authority on various types of project and day-to-day work, you’ll build up experience in all the important areas of finance, including financial systems, budget preparation and monitoring, payroll, pensions, treasury, internal audit and accounting.

Give something back

Every decision you make, issue you address, and recommendation you put forward will have an impact on the community you serve – throughout the scheme and for the rest of your public finance career.

Enjoy excellent benefits

For the duration of your four-year contract, you will receive a competitive salary, with a pension scheme, generous leave package and support for your study.

Become a finance leader

Live and work in the capital

Whichever local authority you join, you’ll be based in one of the world’s largest and most diverse cities. From theatres, museums and music venues to restaurants and department stores, London has everything you could possibly want in life – and more.
