The Industrial Dwellings Society (IDS) was one of the very first Housing Associations established in 1885 by a group of philanthropists whose ambition was to tackle extreme housing conditions in London’s East End. Now with 1400 homes mainly across London, we have stuck faithfully to this mission but moved with the times, housing London’s diverse communities within the framework of our Jewish heritage. Still ambitious, we’ve set our goal to be ‘best in class’ and have exciting plans to develop 500 new homes over the next few years.

We are a small, friendly, dynamic and forward-looking organisation where everyone can make a difference.

We are now recruiting to the key role of Head of Finance. The successful candidate will be pivotal in developing and transforming our Finance department towards ensuring full regulatory compliance, excellent customer service, and innovation through the effective management of new IT systems.
