Basildon Borough Council

(All posts are subject to the NJC conditions of service)

The borough of Basildon is alive with opportunity and has the ingredients to be one of the most successful and desirable places in the South East. As the largest economy in the Thames Estuary outside London, we are incredibly proud of what we have achieved but we are never complacent. We are driving inclusive, sustainable growth to provide opportunity and prosperity for local people and businesses, access to quality homes, vibrant town centres and an enhanced local environment. 

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a successful, nationally recognised Revenues & Benefits Shared Service. The Revenues & Benefits Shared Service between Basildon Borough Council and Brentwood Borough Council is the first and only shared Revenues & Benefits service in Essex, is managed entirely by Basildon Borough Council and is the largest in Essex.

This is a complex role delivering the administration and recovery of Council Tax, NNDR and corporate debt streams. Working with the wider management team you will help and define the strategy and development of the Revenues & Benefits service as well as managing the day to day operations delivered by a team of 30.

The post holder will need significant experience of working within the Revenues & Benefits environment, a strong aptitude of people management, experience of representing the Council at court, extensive knowledge of Council Tax, NNDR collection and enforcement.

In return we will offer you a generous reward package including flexible working.

If you would like to be part of Basildon’s success, we look forward to receiving your application.
