Olympic body on the hunt for finance boss

The 2012 Games is advertising for a financial controller

Olympic bosses are looking for a second-in-command to deliver the 2012 Games,
advertising for a financial controller.

The role at the Olympic Delivery Authority, which will build the theatre of
the games, was advertised in national newspapers last week.

Project bosses at the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games, which
works alongside the ODA, had to face the International Olympic Committee and go
through the revised budget of £9.3bn in fine detail recently.

A substantial slice of this amount will be allocated to the ODA to bankroll
its efforts to deliver the new venues and infrastructure for the Olympics.

An ODA spokesperson said that the FC role had become vacant after the
previous owner had left, but did not elaborate on the reasons for the departure.

In addition to leading and developing a team of around eight staff in the
delivery of a fit for purpose accounting service, the new FC will communicate
with Treasury, the NAO and other relevant stakeholders on matters relating to
finance, audit and taxation.
