IT Services has a Finance team which is split into three main areas: Purchasing, Projects and General Ledger, with a manager heading up each section. The IT Services Finance team is headed up by a Head of Finance.
This role is within the Projects team. The expenditure on IT projects has increased significantly and will continue to increase in the next few years to a steady state of £30 million per year. A significant element of the expenditure is managed by IT Services; however a large element is also delegated to different departments (such as Finance) but is ultimately the responsibility of the Projects team to monitor and report on this. Reporting is also required internally (for example, to project managers, director of projects, Deputy CIO and SMT) and externally (for example to the IT Committee, various IT Boards). This post will support the capital projects programme and be responsible for project recharges via journals among other duties.
The Projects Team is led by the Senior Project Accountant and consists of two Project Accountants and a Finance Assistant.
