Southwark revamps finance function

'Significant numbers' of accounting professionals required to grow the finance function at Southwark Council

The biggest review of Southwark Council’s finance structure for 25 years has
been initiated to help manage the area’s multimillion-pound regeneration
programme.

Finance director Duncan Whitfield said ‘significant numbers’ of accounting
professionals were required to grow the finance function and support the various
projects running in the organisation. Individuals would be placed out on
specific projects, or used to bolster the central function.

‘When you have a programme of this size, you gain a lot more processes than
you previously had,’ said Whitfield. ‘You must be aware of that and keep
governance in place. Professional people bring this skill to the party.’

The programme will support the Elephant & Castle’s ambitious plans to
build 5,000 new homes, shops and a tram route; a scheme to redevelop Aylesbury,
one of the largest housing estates in Europe; and the construction of a new town
centre in Heygate.
