Principal Accountant - 2 Roles - Adult's Services & Schools


Providing first-class support and advice to budget holders, you’ll be integral to the success of a wide range of high value projects within Haringey. Identifying savings and helping services implement them will be a key aspect of your role. You’ll support managers to identify and implement savings, value for money improvements and proactively act against budget overspend. You’ll also undertake complex financial modelling and forecasting. It’s about providing high quality financial analysis to support informed decision making and budget planning.


Dynamic and ambitious, you’ll bring considerable experience of working in finance, including advising senior managers on financial management. You’ll understand best practice and help to drive continuous improvement.  Skilled in communication and analysis, you’ll have the ability to convey complex technical information to finance and non-finance professionals at the highest level. Above all, you’ll embody the Haringey attitude: bold, optimistic and ready to push against the ordinary.

We have two vacant roles covering Adults and Schools.  Please indicate in your application form which of these you would have a preference for.
