You can enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and endless recreational activities that Invercargill has to offer with Central Otago, Fiordland and the Catlins on our doorstep. As New Zealand's southernmost city we proudly encourage a good work-life balance and with direct flights to Auckland, Christchurch, and Wellington the rest of the world is also within easy reach.

With a high level of confidence, our prosperous southern city is undergoing the biggest resurgence in its 166-year history. Invercargill's reputation for being family-friendly is well deserved, with affordable housing, great schools, and amazing facilities.

The Invercargill City Council Finance team is responsible for providing accounting and financial services to the various operations within Council. We currently have a 12 month fixed-term vacancy available for an experienced person to join the team as one of our Finance Support Officers.

In this role you will be responsible for the many aspects of financial administration including organising, collating and processing transactions in financial systems - this will primarily be Debtors, Water Billing, Rating, as well as Creditors as required.

You will have a proven track record in Finance Administration - this goes without saying! But much more than this, you will have an excellent eye for detail and be experienced in organising your day to meet important deadlines. Your excellent communications skills will also be put to good use providing support to other members of your team with a willingness to show initiative. Knowledge of Local Government would be an advantage, and experience in accounting systems is a must.

At Invercargill City Council we pride ourselves on our values - positivity, respect, responsibility and above and beyond. Finding the right fit for our team is really important to us and we work hard to provide an environment reflective of these values.
