We’re looking for motivated and experienced finance professionals with a passion for delivering excellent service to the people we support and colleagues. To be successful in this role you’ll need an understanding of accounting processes and housing rent knowledge having worked in a Rents or Rents & Service Charge Team in a Housing Association.

Our Finance department works collaboratively with its stakeholders, actively looking for opportunities to improve financial analysis, model new types of tenure e.g. shared ownership and provide insight in support of the organisation’s delivery of financial sustainability, performance targets and outstanding services.

We recognise the work we have to do, and the imperative to support the cultural change in the charity which has been empowering vulnerable adults for over 60 years. These roles are not business as usual and will be the most rewarding for those willing to engage in the challenge.
