Glebe Housing Association, West WickhamBR4

Finance & Corporate Services Manager

Salary ©£65,000

Glebe Housing Association is a not for profit organisation providing sheltered accommodation for older people. We have 202 sheltered housing units, a mix of rental and leasehold properties. All our accommodation is based on site in our retirement village in Bencurtis Park, West Wickham. Our aim is to provide safe, comfortable and secure accommodation enabling people as they grow older to continue to live independently within a supportive community.

We are seeking to recruit a highly skilled, flexible and enthusiastic Finance & Corporate Services Manager to deliver our finance and other corporate support services at both an operational and strategic level. This is a critical and exciting role for the right person, with lots of scope to play a key role in supporting the Chief Exec and Board to drive the organisation forward. Working within a small organisation means that you will have the unique opportunity to understand, and shape, the business inside out and make a real difference to the organisation and our residents.

We are looking for a fully qualified finance professional, preferably with housing sector experience, with a positive approach and strong strategic leadership skills. We need a great communicator who will act as an ambassador for Glebe, forging and sustaining strong relationships with board members, lenders, regulators, and other key stakeholders. As well as strong business acumen, technical skills and a commitment to customer service, the successful candidate will support us to:

  • deliver a strong operational financial performance
  • strengthen our long term financial viability and ensure we can deliver the Boards vision
  • make the best use of the association’s resources, maximising value for money
  • ensure our ICT and other systems support the organisational objectives
  • ensure the governance structures are appropriately supported
  • manage risk effectively to achieve our goals

As a member of the senior management team you will work with us to drive forward our digitalisation agenda and have experience of managing change. If you have a passion for making change happen and providing services which support staff to deliver their very best, we would love to hear from you.

This is an opportunity to join a small value-driven organisation. Experience of the housing, charitable or public sectors would be beneficial but not essential. If you are currently working as an Assistant Finance Manager and can provide us with evidence that you have the ability to drive our financial and corporate services forward and are ready to take the next step in your career we would be interested in hearing from you.

Benefits include post entry training and development, pension, private medical insurance, season ticket loan, contribution to professional subscriptions and generous annual leave package.
