How to apply
We're looking for a full or part-qualified CCAB/CIMA accountant to join our team as a Finance Analyst and provide financial analysis and insight with a focus on supporting our Income Generation directorate.
A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change, with individuals, in communities, across society, and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time.
Our Finance department works as a team of experts to safeguard resources and support decision making across the organisation. We strive to ensure Shelter is financially sustainable in order to achieve our vision of a home for everyone. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.
About the Role
This role sits within the Financial Analysis Team which supports the charity through financial reporting, analysis and expert advice, and enables collaboration to support managers in making effective business decisions. Your key focus will be on supporting our Income Generation directorate and will include monitoring financial performance, resolving queries from budget holders and supporting the development of tools and processes to improve financial analysis. It also means producing monthly management accounts, taking the lead on in-month analysis of results and assisting with the production of an annual budget and quarterly forecasts. Developing strong working relationships with budget holders and supporting them to interpret reports, utilise financial analysis and complete budget and forecast submissions, will be key to success in this role.
A full or part-qualified CCAB Accountant, you'll have a proven ability to carry out complex reconciliations and investigate and resolve any differences that arise. Adept at working, and managing relationships, with a variety of stakeholders, you have a customer focused and results driven approach and are ready and willing to challenge the status quo. You'll ideally have a charity sector finance background, or the ability to quickly adapt to the regulations and mechanics involved in charity reporting. Excellent Excel skills are also required, while a working knowledge of Unit 4 Business World would be useful.
We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave, enhanced family friendly policies, childcare vouchers, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We're here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
