Director of Finance and Corporate Services

Unique opportunity for a fully-qualified accountant to use your accounting, leadership and change management skills within this rapidly expanding and increasingly high-profile Ombudsman service.

Social landlords and residents are facing unprecedented challenges, with a cost of living crisis and ageing homes. Our vision of improving residents’ lives and landlords’ services through housing complaints has never been more critical, hence our substantial increase in powers, resources and profile.

As Director of Finance and Corporate Services, you will play a pivotal role in leading and developing the Service, including all corporate support teams (People, Finance and Corporate & Information Governance), to deliver our strategic objectives. This will include leading and managing strategic enabling programmes and projects, as well as ensuring appropriate governance, internal control and risk management processes are in place across the organisation.

Whether you’re a Finance Director looking to expand your remit across Corporate Services, a Deputy Director within a larger organisation looking to step up, or a proven Finance and Corporate Services Director, this pivotal remit provides the opportunity to make an impact across the organisation and beyond.

Key requirements include that you:

  • Are a strategically minded, pragmatic, forward thinking leader with proven senior leadership experience;
  • Are a fully qualified chartered accountant (ACA, ACCA, CIMA); and
  • Possess excellent knowledge of requirements of Managing Public Money, Spending Controls, and Accounting Officer responsibilities

In addition to the salary stated, we offer generous benefits including a 20%+ pension contribution, 27 days’ holiday (plus Christmas closure days and public holidays), a 35 hour working week and flexible working arrangements.
