Kensington and Chelsea has always been a unique and vibrant place to work, nestled in the heart of London, with a wealth of nationally and internationally recognised cultural attractions (incl. Kensington Palace, The Natural History, Science and Design Museums and Notting Hill Carnival).
The Borough’s 15,000 businesses (incl. the World-famous Portobello Market), have faced severe financial pressures during the last two Lockdowns and COVID-19 restrictions and the Borough continues to do everything to support these, with Finance playing a major part in this.
The financial management department is an integral part of the Council’s enabling services. We ensure the Council’s spending plans are aligned with the overall corporate strategy and strategic vision but also play an important role in the Council’s key transformation and service re-design projects.
You could be involved with supporting one of our important new projects:
Kensington and Chelsea is going through a period of change. You will be coming into a borough where two days are never quite the same. The culture of the organisation is changing – it is exciting and you will be part of this change.
You will have a support network with other CIPFA graduates and also our NGLP grads too. You will be paired with a senior officer in finance who will act as your mentor and ensure that you get the support you need and always an ear to bend.
