The opportunity

We can’t help but feel we’ve clicked already, but you’ll want to find out more to see if you really want to ‘swipe right’, as they say.

If you’re looking for a Finance Ops leadership role with a bit of a difference, and ready to take on your next challenge, then maybe this role is what you’ve been looking for.

Here’s three things we think you should know:

  • You’ll lead the way in your area and shape the future of Yorkshire Housing in a hands-on way.
  • You can work where, when and how you want with our hub, home, roam approach. No need to pick a job you can commute to over the one you really want.
  • It’s a role with meaning, so you’ll be making a real difference to thousands of customers lives with what you do.

So, what’s this Head of Financial Operations and Reporting role all about then?

Well, you’ll understand the value in high quality financial information and be keen to make sure we’re always improving what we do. You’ll use data and technology to automate processes as well as take a balanced approach to business risk and opportunity.  We’d like you to have a relevant qualification and plenty of senior level experience of financial management in a regulated environment.

You’ll give confident and clear leadership and direction to a large business area, covering finance processing, rent setting, the period end closure processes, the preparation of high quality internal and statutory financial reports, as well as managing the audit process.  You’ll also have a key role working with our business partners and treasury team to get information to support decision making and funding. And when it comes to supporting the rest of the business, you’ll be the go-to person for advice on financial processing, accounting and tax. 

With one eye on the future, you’ll work with others in the business to look at opportunities and risks coming up. You’ll make sure everything’s joined up and that we’ve got high quality financial information. A truly commercial role where your specialist expertise and relationship building skills are crucial.

If you’re looking to join a customer-focused, dynamic organisation that does something that matters, then maybe we’re made for each other...

And what about us?

You might think of Yorkshire Housing as ‘just’ a housing provider, but we’re so much more than that. Yes, we own and manage nearly 20,000 homes (and counting) across Yorkshire and make it possible for current and future customers to have a place they’re proud to call home, but we’re also all about making a positive difference in people’s lives. We’re transforming our business by investing in people, processes and technology to deliver a consistently great experience for our customers.  This role is one of a group of new leadership opportunities that have been created to make this happen.

Pssst. One of our values is ‘Be Yourself’. We’re passionate about inclusion and we’d love to hear from people from diverse backgrounds for this role.

The finer print

You’ll probably want to know we offer a salary of £70,177, 28 days annual leave plus public holidays, a generous pension scheme and plenty of other benefits.

This is an agile / homeworking position, and you’ll be comfortable travelling to and within Yorkshire as required for the role.

First stage interview dates are expected to be week commencing 5 July via MS Teams. If we click, second stage interviews are expected to be in person in the Leeds area the following week.

The closing date for this advert is 23 June 2021.

Our values

We’re looking for people who want to get stuck in and make a positive difference to people’s lives. We want you to own the work you do and achieve impact.

You’ll make it happen by being curious and creating trust with our customers and each other. We want you to love what you do and have fun along the way.
