We are looking for an enthusiastic and dynamic individual to take up our role of Financial Controls Accountant within East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure.

You will be a qualified accountant with a broad range of experience and, in particular,  financial control management including balance sheet controls, bank and control account reconciliations and cash management, underpinned with strong analytical skills and a drive to improve processes.  You will be proficient with advanced Excel capabilities and be a self-starter with the ability to work on your own initiative.

The role has a broad business remit supporting services across the Trust and therefore the ideal candidate will be able to be flexible and effectively prioritise workload aligned to the business needs.

Good communication is essential as you will support the Trust with financial advice and guidance often through complex financial management and governance arrangements.

This post is considered Regulated Work with Children, under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007.  It is an offence therefore to apply if you are barred from working with children.



Pension Scheme


Employees with a contract of employment for 3 months or more are automatically included in our Local Government Pension Scheme which is a career average scheme.  Pension contribution rates are based on a tiered system determined by your annual full time equivalent pensionable pay.  For example for those earning up to and including £21,800 the contribution rate you pay is 5.5% of your salary. The council pays the rest of the cost of providing your benefits. This amount varies but it's always enough to make sure your pension can be paid and will be at least 19.3% of your pay.  In addition you get tax relief on your contributions - the tax you pay on your salary is calculated after your pension contributions are deducted. 

Other main pension benefits include a pension that increases each year in line with price inflation and the ability to exchange some of your pension to provide a tax free lump sum.  Further details can be found in the attached document General Information for Applicants or via the Strathclyde Pension Fund website
