Are you an exceptional individual looking to make a real difference? Do you enjoy working in an innovative and forward-thinking environment? Are you ready for a new and exciting challenge?

Yes? Then this could be the perfect opportunity for you. If you would like to join our finance team and make a real difference, now and in the future, we want to hear from you.

At NPH, our mission is to provide homes which enable people to live happy and healthy lives in enriched communities. We are making great progress and delivering significant improvements to tenants’ homes and the services we provide.

As a result of internal promotion, we are looking for a Financial Accounts Assistant with enthusiasm and ambition to join our finance team working directly for the Financial Controller. We need you to be part way through your studies and will provide you with support to continue. We need a strong character who can inspire, engage and communicate effectively at all levels. Your areas of responsibility will be supporting the financial accounting and control processes not only for NPH but also for our subsidiary Community Interest Company, Happy to Help.  You will be responsible for maintaining robust controls, control account reconciliation and providing accurate and timely financial information and analysis to support the Financial Controller and the preparation and completion of statutory accounts for both entities. 

You will have experience of working in a busy finance team preferably with skills in financial accounts and control account reconciliations.  You will have a good eye for detail, be able to manage your time effectively and be able to prioritise appropriately during over the month.  You will be a good communicator as part of the role you will provide business partnering to the support functions (HR, Comms, Governance and Corporate Services - circa 1% of our budget) providing insight and challenge in a manner aligned to our corporate and people values. You will provide detailed analysis, reporting and forecasting. You will work alongside the Finance Apprentice and be supported by the Financial Controller and for the finance business partner work by the Senior Finance Business Partner to deliver a full financial service. Experience within the housing sector would be desirable, though not essential.
