Job Details

Onward Homes is one of the largest registered providers of social housing in the North West, with 35,000 properties across the region.

We believe that everyone deserves a place to call their own, which is why we’re committed to building 500 new homes each year. We do more than just provide a roof over our customers’ heads, we’re here to make a real difference.

In addition to creating positive spaces for our customers we continuously strive to create a positive and progressive workspace to enable our colleagues to achieve their full potential.

We are looking for an Management Accountant (1 post) to join our Finance & Analytics team team in either Liverpool or Manchester.


In this role you will provide support to the Finance Manager in providing a wide range of financial services including monthly management reporting, performance reports, annual service charge statement production, budget production and monthly meetings with stakeholders.

You will be responsible for assisting in the preparation of monthly management accounts information, service charge budgets and reforecasts and monthly robust variance analysis reporting specifically for service charges across Onward within agreed deadlines. You will assist the Finance Manager to deliver a management information reporting service to a high standard and be responsible for a team of 3 Assistant Accountants to include monthly one to ones and appraisal reviews supporting the team as needed.

In addition, you will be responsible for working with the Finance Manager to create and develop management information reports which will aide the Business Partner to support budget holders to effectively manage and monitor their budgets. You will also support the annual audit process specifically for service charge year end.

It is essential that you are Association of Accounting Technician Qualified or CCAB part qualified or equivalent, or are working towards an Accountancy qualification (ACCA, CCAB, CIMA). Some experience of service charges and line management would be useful but is not essential.

To enable us to capitalise on the benefits of more flexible ways of working, for our customers, colleagues and to support sustainability, we have developed Onward ‘WorkSpace’. This is our approach that focuses on work being the thing that we do that makes a difference to our customers, not the place we go.  This role is home based and there is no requirement to attend the office daily, but you will be required to attend neighbourhoods and/or sites as required to fulfil duties of the role.

As well as a competitive salary and a generous annual leave entitlement, we offer a range of benefits for a rewarding career including a health cash plan, pension scheme and personal development.

If candidates have any concerns / questions in relation to Covid-19 and the role at any stage of the recruitment and selection process they can contact the HR team on and a member of the HR Team will be in touch.

Interviews will be held on the 8th December. 


Onward is one of the largest registered providers of social housing based solely in the North West of England with 35,000 homes across Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Merseyside and Lancashire.

Onward currently comprises of five leading housing providers committed to the regeneration and sustainability of our region; Contour Homes, Liverpool Housing Trust, Ribble Valley Homes, Hyndburn Homes and Peak Valley Housing Association. They work together under the Onward brand as a not-for-profit organisation regulated by Homes England.

Our member organisations are united by a common purpose – to make a positive difference in the communities we serve.

  • We build, manage and maintain homes for people who are unable to access housing on the open market.
  • We deliver high quality homes and first class services that make a real difference to the people living in our neighbourhoods.
  • We offer customers support and assistance, helping people to overcome the challenges faced in our communities.
  • We provide homes and support to vulnerable people, helping them to live independent lives in the community.
  • We work with partners, voluntary groups and government agencies to provide more homes for people from all backgrounds, meeting the increasing need for housing throughout the North West.

Together as Onward, we’re signalling our intention to increase our impact by building more homes and delivering better services.
