Further information

Castles & Coasts Housing Association owns and manages more than 7,000 homes across the North of England in the areas of Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear and North Lancashire.

This is an exciting time for us as we are currently recruiting for a Head of Finance. You will join the Association at a time when we are moving from a traditional linear structure to a business partnering approach. This represents a substantial change in the way in which we operate with a clear focus upon driving the business forward. The concept for the future of the finance function is around client care, meeting and anticipating the needs of both our internal and external partners.

You will need to be dynamic and pro-active with solid experience of driving change, bringing both the customer and the staff with you. As a head of department you will be responsible for the finance function, reporting directly to the Finance Director and to the Committees and Board of the Association.

Ideally you will have experience of managing and motivating a finance team, writing complex reports, developing good relationships with internal staff; be self motivated and possess a degree and be a qualified accountant.

Please Note: to apply, please can you:

• Provide an up to date CV which shows your full career history, clearly explaining any breaks. We suggest that this is no longer than 3 pages,
• Write a supporting statement detailing why you are a good candidate for this post and how you fulfil the Person Specification (no more than 2 pages),
