We are looking for a Finance Assistant to join our small but busy Finance team in the VTS Head Office on a 2 year fixed-term contract. You will report to one of our Finance Officers on a day-to-day basis. The role is part-time and our preference is a working pattern of 21.6 hours per week (0.6 FTE) worked over 3 days. We would, however, be willing to consider up to 25 hours per week and are flexible on how the hours are spread over the working week.

The Valuation Tribunal Service (VTS) is a statutory, non-departmental public body (NDPB), sponsored by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, with responsibility for the administration of Council Tax and Non-Domestic Rating appeals.  What we do and how we do it has an impact on the multi-million pound income the Government brings in from local property taxation to support other public services.

Your specific responsibilities will include:

  • processing all financial transactions for the VTS including purchase orders, goods receipts, invoicing processing, member claims and staff T&S;
  • maintaining electronic and paper filing systems for the Finance team;
  • providing support to the Finance Team in the delivery of finance functions;
  • assisting the Finance Officers in producing the Annual Accounts, Management Accounts, Board Reports and other returns required.

Our ideal candidate will have previous experience of a range of finance responsibilities, preferably gained within the public sector. Knowledge of the work involved in central government financing and specifically within an NDPB would be a positive advantage.  We believe that this position will suit candidates who have a recognised financial qualification or is working towards one, and who also have knowledge of SAP accounting.  You are likely to have excellent Excel skills – at an intermediate or advanced level – as working with spreadsheets is a prime requirement of the role.
