Director of Finance (Shared)

£70,000 pa, plus pension (SHPS with 10% Employer Contribution) and 26 days leave (plus bank holidays)

Waltham Forest HA and Peter Bedford HA have joined together to offer this newly created role which will maximise the benefit of your financial expertise to strengthen their finance functions and help shape the development of two values-driven, community focused organisations in East London.

Reporting to our Chief Executives, you will be responsible for all our financial activity, leading and managing finance functions, overseeing ICT, dealing with corporate matters – including insurance and the coordination of the Finance, Audit and Risk Committees. Our aim is to maximise the benefit of a senior, strategic level appointment. Staffing structures in both organisations will support the postholder to operate with an appropriate, high level of focus, while maintaining oversight of the work of direct reports.

We’re looking for a strategic leader and great communicator who shares our values and who is excited by this joint role as much as we are. You should be a CCAB qualified accountant with demonstrable and substantial post qualification experience, gained in a regulated housing organisation. Significant experience of line managing a professional team and of delivering high quality and complex services for internal customers is needed.

The Director of Finance will be able to work on an agile basis, remotely, with attendance at both organisations offices as required. If desired, office space is available by arrangement. Both sites are accessible to wheelchair users. This is a unique opportunity to join the leadership teams of two great organisations who are committed to tackling inequality in East London. Our values are at the heart of what we do and this synergy, along with ambition and complementary service provision, form the basis of our partnership in sharing this role. As a member of the strategic leadership of each organisation you will help us explore how our partnership could be strengthened going forward 

If you’d like to join us and play an integral part in the leadership of two progressive, inclusive and innovative organisations with clear and meaningful social purpose, we’d love to hear from you. We strongly encourage applications from people who are under-represented at leadership level, including people with a BAME background.
