Wythenshawe Community Housing Group
Wythenshawe Community Housing Group manages nearly 14,000 properties across South Manchester, providing homes for more than 20,000 people. Our vision is to “creating communities where people choose to live and work, having pride in their homes and value the services”.
Our Group strategy is to bring a diverse mix of tenures including shared ownership; rent to buy; outright sale and a mix of rental options to meet the range of needs of the community. We’re keen to build on our success and implement an ambitious growth plan which will see us develop 1,000 homes, with ambitions to take this higher taking us further afield than our core area of Wythenshawe. There’s no doubt that it’s an exciting time to join us.
We are looking for an exceptional finance professional to be the inspirational leader of our finance and rents departments. A key member of the Senior Management Team, you will provide strategic leadership to ensure we realise our significant financial capacity and ambitious development programme. Ensuring the highest standards of customer service, integrity and compliance, you will strive to shape and deliver services that are excellent value for money and develop strategies to secure our rental income.
You’ll ensure that our ambitious objectives and plans are founded on resilient financial planning and ensure value for money is embedded in all our activities. As well as leading on financial management, budgeting and reporting and financial inclusion, you’ll also review existing processes, identify potential improvements and take the lead in planning for new developments and investments.
With your commercial input, we’ll aim to develop our strong financial position and ensure our organisation goes from strength to strength. You’ll need to demonstrate previous experience a similar, senior-level role, where you have been responsible for financial systems and reporting, and fostered a customer-first, value-for-money culture.
We are proud to hold the prestigious ‘Investors in People’ Platinum Status demonstrating our commitment to high performance through excellent people management. Our senior leadership team thrives on a collegiate, adaptable leadership style – and you’ll enjoy the opportunities for professional and personal development that this offers. A commitment to continuous improvement is vital, supported by a strongly collaborative approach and a desire to create an empowering environment. You must be confident making business-critical decisions based on financial knowledge and good judgement, share and embed best practice wherever possible and achieve results through effective performance management.
