Our client is a charitable housing association aiming to help people who need support and care, or who cannot afford to buy or rent a home at market values. They do this by building hundreds of much needed new homes and providing care and supported housing services for a wide range of people. They currently manage 6500 homes and employ over 900 staff.

This role is responsible for providing in-depth financial analysis to the Association, deducing insights from financial results, trends and KPI's to determine effectiveness, identify risks and opportunities and enhance future performance. You will also be responsible for supporting the monthly reporting process, with the efficient production of monthly Management Accounts for the Association and the preparation of annual Service Charge Accounts for the Association's Leaseholders and Shared Owners.

As the Financial Analyst, your key responsibilities for this role are:

* Preparation of regular Financial KPI Reports and dashboards, including the provision of commentary to explain variances and trends within the financial results of the Association

* Provide insightful financial analysis, using large volumes of financial data from various sources, identifying trends, patterns and anomalies.

* Create reports and present financial analysis to internal stakeholders including Senior Management, Directors and the Chief Executive, as required

* Undertake financial modelling and scenario planning to support decision making and enhance business performance

* Provide financial input into internal and external benchmarking and data gathering processes e.g. HouseMark

* Provide in-depth financial analysis on Sector benchmarking publications e.g. HouseMark, Placeshapers Global Accounts, Social Housing Magazine to gain meaningful insights into the performance of the Association compared to its peer group

* Respond to analysis and modelling requests from internal customers and stakeholders in a timely manner, providing concise and meaningful information to support decision making, whilst ensuring compliance with applicable control processes and frameworks

You will need to be AAT qualified or CIMA part qualified, with strong analytical skills. The successful candidate will have experience in financial planning, analysis and reporting but you will need to have the ability to work with large or complex data to identify trends, ideally within a not for profit organisation, or another housing association
