Are you looking to use your finance expertise to have a real impact on the local community? Do you want to join a friendly, warm working environment with a sociable culture? Are you looking for a Head of Finance in the Housing sector, leading a competent and established team and sitting on the senior management team?

Joining a Surrey-based housing organisation, the Head of Finance has a broad remit of responsibility supporting a highly experienced Finance Director. Key responsibilities will be to:

In return, you will enjoy being a part of a growing organisation, dedicated to its expansion programme whilst maintaining its core culture in a local Surrey setting. You will also have the chance to make the day to day finance operations your own and put your own stamp on the department, all whilst enjoying an attractive benefits package including genuinely flexible working.
