We have two opportunities for qualified accountancy professionals to join our teams at Yorkshire Housing.
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. Whether that’s helping people get on the property ladder, supporting with money coaching or enabling our older customers to continue to live independently. To do that, we need to recruit and keep the very best people.
As our Fixed Asset Accountant, you will maintain the fixed asset register, including reconciling accounts ensuring accurate records. You will also assist the accounting and reporting of operating and non-operating sales of properties and prepare fixed asset reports for financial statements and provide relevant information to auditors. With experience of working in social housing, you will assist in developing robust financial controls and maintain adherence with all necessary processes and procedures.
You’ll have working knowledge of the Housing SORP, FRS102 and accounting standards in respect of housing fixed assets. Also from a system perspective, you’ll have experience in Open accounts or similar software including the fixed asset module, or a similar fixed asset register software.
Joining Yorkshire Housing as our Management Accountant, you will lead on the production of the monthly financial reporting including monthly and year-end balance sheet reconciliations.
You’ll have previous management accounting background coupled with reconciliations experience, particularly balance sheet. You’ll have working knowledge of Open accounts or similar software .
The stuff that sets you apart?
For both roles, you’ll be extremely numerate and ACCA, ACA or CIMA qualified with good Excel skills. You’ll be able to work independently and as a team, be really organised, pro-active with deadlines and have strong interpersonal skills. Ideally, you’ll also have regulatory reporting experience.
What’s in it for you?
We offer a salary of £37,668.22 per annum for a 35 hour week, 25 days annual leave (raising annually to 30 days) plus Bank Holidays.
We also provide a fantastic reward package to suit everyone –a variety of amazing discounts via PerkBox, a great Healthcare cash plan called Health Shield and a contributory pension scheme where we will match your contributions up to 9%! As well as our great benefits and a fantastic work environment, we’re absolutely a company that cares about its employees and its customers.
So if you want to be part of a team that makes a real, positive difference every day and work for an organisation that prioritises its people and its customers then we want to hear from you
The finer print
This is a home-working position but in line with our hub, home and roam strategy, you do need to be able to commute to or around Yorkshire on occasions for face to face collaboration and to meet business requirements.
If you are applying for this role internally you must inform your current line manager.
Detailed requirements are included on the attached role profiles
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.
A bit more about us
We’ve got a few ‘house rules’ at Yorkshire Housing (no pun intended!). One of them is work is something that you do, not somewhere that you go and another is that we think in careers, not jobs. Our flexible working environment and friendly culture means you can be yourself, take advantage of development opportunities and succeed – that’s just how we roll.
We’re inclusive and welcoming and offer a fun and open culture with a shared belief in making a positive difference to people’s lives – it really does feel like joining a big family!
