Finance Business Partner

Newcastle City Council

Newcastle is a great city; one that never stands still. It’s an iconic city with a rich heritage but one that also shapes the future of the region. Despite the global economic challenges, we have bold plans for the city including achieving Net Zero by 2030, supporting our residents to face the cost of living crisis and addressing poverty and inequality across the city. In all these things, our simple aim is to improve the city for the benefit of our residents.

As evidenced by the recent CIPFA financial management review, we are a high-performing finance team that provides excellent support to managers across the organisation.

We have a Finance Partner vacancy that will play a key role in helping the council to achieve its aims by supporting managers to improve the financial performance of services, develop revenue and capital projects and improve their financial skills and acumen.

We are looking for someone with a demonstrable track record of applying their financial skills and expertise to resolving business issues and improving financial performance, and with a proven track record of building trust and working collaboratively with non-finance professionals.

We can offer you a competitive salary and pension, a generous annual leave allowance, numerous salary sacrifice schemes, flexible and agile working arrangements, professional development opportunities and a rewarding, challenging career.

For further information, or for an informal discussion about the role, please contact Mark Nicholson, our Chief Finance Officer, on or email: .

We strive to be an organisation where equality, diversity and inclusion are part of who we are and how we work and where everybody is treated fairly, with dignity and respect. We are committed to building an inclusive and supportive workplace where everyone can bring their whole self to work and succeed in being their best.
