Job Details

About the role

At SYHA, we are proud of our reputation for delivering exemplary social impact, innovation, and of our unwavering commitment to customers. We work across South Yorkshire, providing nearly 6000 homes, and providing services to over 10,000 customers.

This is a great time to join us as our new Finance Director. In the last year, the organisation celebrated turning 50 years old, we were delighted to welcome our new CEO Larry Gold, and we are welcoming a new Chair and a refreshed Board. But we are in a challenging business period and are currently involved in a high degree of regulatory engagement and we recognise that we need to undertake a period of change.

Our new Finance Director will play a key role in helping us shape the future of the business. You will join as we start work on our new 5-year strategy and your contribution to our vision of what SYHA will look like in future will be critical.

You will bring senior finance experience in the housing sector, and a track record of leading high-performing teams. Your ability to understand the financial and policy context for SYHA, analyse options and ensure the organisation makes decisions that are viable and meet our strategic objectives will be critical. You will be excited by the prospect of helping us thinking about the best path forward strategically, while at the same time being about to get involved in the detail where needed.

This role will play a critical leadership role in the next important stage of our organisational journey as we go through a period of real change. So, this is a role that will be extremely rewarding if you enjoy making an impact and engaging widely across an organisation.

If you share our passion about being in an organisation that combines a strong sense of social purpose with robust business thinking, then we would love to hear from you.
