Head of Finance

Location: Northwich, Cheshire

Salary: £75k 

Weaver Vale Housing Trust is based in West Cheshire and provides high quality, affordable homes to an incredibly diverse range of customers. Our 6,000+ homes range from flats and retirement apartments to larger family homes, and we are committed to delivering the highest standards of customer service to our tenants. Our vision is that we can ‘transform neighbourhoods, homes and services, to improve the quality of life for our customers’ and it’s the commitment, talent and expertise of our colleagues that make this happen.

We are ambitious for the future, and eager to build on our reputation for innovation and high-quality services. We strongly believe that how an organisation does things is as important as what it does; so our values and behaviours form an integral part of our organisational culture.

Due to planned retirement, we now have an opportunity for a senior finance professional to be part of our team. This is an ideal opportunity to bring a fresh perspective to what we do, building on existing strengths, while exploring new opportunities and approaches. We’re looking for a blend of technical, financial expertise and a focus on outcomes that enables you to make connections between effective financial management and better outcomes for customers.

This opportunity will suit a highly capable and astute financial professional. You’ll take the lead on delivering the fundamentals of good financial practice within the organisation. This will include the production of the annual accounts, regular forecasting, and advising on the setting of rents and other income streams. Leading an experienced and credible Finance team, you will also be part of the Trust’s Senior team, working closely with the Exec, to deliver organisational objectives, projects and initiatives. You’ll be comfortable contributing beyond your own area of expertise.
