Head of Financial Control

London

Circa £65,000 - £70,000 per annum

Full Time (35 hours per week)

Octavia believes that good homes make for better lives. Inspired by our founder, the social reformer Octavia Hill, we are a not-for-profit organisation providing thousands of people with good-quality affordable homes in inner London. Like her we believe in the power of well-planned, well-managed housing to make a difference.

An opportunity has arisen for a finance professional to join us in the role of Head of Financial Control and contribute to our continuing success. Within this pivotal role, you will ensure the financial stability of Octavia through effective controls, adherence with relevant compliance and regulation and smooth running of day-to-day financial operations.

Leading an efficient and customer-focused transaction service, you will manage, develop and motivate a team of finance professionals and be a figurehead for financial excellence. This will include leading the external and internal audit processes and delivering training as required. We need you to build a culture of continuous improvement within the team, promoting a collaborative approach to ensure that excellent standards are achieved at all times.

A fully qualified CCAB accountant with significant post qualification experience, you will be able to demonstrate an aptitude for leading audit processes and interpreting complex standards. With a proven track record of successfully managing, coaching and mentoring a team, you will have housing sector experience or possess the ability to adapt to a complex and regulated sector at pace.

This challenging role requires a positive, proactive and highly organised individual with the ability to prioritise effectively and meet deadlines under pressure without compromising on quality.

Closing date: Monday 14th January 2019 at 5:00pm
