Mosscare St Vincent’s Housing Group (MSV) is a values-led, people and communities focussed landlord with an exceptionally strong track record of creating thriving neighbourhoods, filled with opportunity and purpose. We work in partnership with others to achieve more together and we help to influence and shape local and national agendas. Employing around 300 members of staff, we’ve come together to do more for more people, extending our community focus and commercial expertise across the North West.

We are investing in neighbourhoods by building new homes; currently the stewards of over 8200 across Greater Manchester and we plan to build 1600 new homes across the North West in the next 5 years. Our mission is to create an environment in which everyone can flourish in a can-do, agile, flexible and high-performance culture. In this role, you’ll work collaboratively with the Chief Executive, Board and EMT to shape and deliver our strategic plan, contributing to a culture of open and effective leadership across the business. You’ll help us become more efficient: growing the business by creating further opportunities, developing our talent, having greater influence on our patch, and above all providing residents and customers with a quality service, so we continue to make a difference in neighbourhoods.

Finance is also a key accountability of the role, and we’ll expect you to ensure our long-term financial viability and growth by leading and developing best-in-class financial, business assurance and procurement functions. A key deliverable will be the financial business plan: you’ll ensure it’s fit for purpose, regularly reviewed and stress-tested. You’ll also design and deliver the process to secure appropriate and competitive funding to achieve the organisation’s Corporate Plan. In a sector that manages risk at a highly sophisticated level, you must be able to lead on the strategic management of risk, financial viability and regulatory compliance, including our VFM Strategy and all other regulatory and compliance matters.

A qualified accountant, and educated to degree level (or high-level equivalent qualification) with a proven track record in a similar, senior-level leadership role, you’ll bring experience of leading and managing change in a creative and inclusive way. A good track record of the effective management of significant budgets, achievement of financial targets and managing large capital and revenue budgets will be a must. Strong candidates will demonstrate the expertise to build relationships and develop partnerships regionally and beyond. Most of all, we want to hear from people with excellent leadership skills, and the ability to exemplify our visions and values when dealing with customers, staff, partners and peers.
