If you are a qualified accountancy professional who is passionate about social justice, this is an exceptional opportunity to join a forward-thinking business that is transforming lives throughout Cornwall.

About Us

Coastline exists to provide housing for those in need, to help improve the neighbourhoods that people live in, and to provide services that improve the quality of our Customers' lives.

We are an independent, charitable, not-for-profit housing association owning and managing over 4,600 homes throughout Cornwall.

We aim to make a financial surplus to support our mission and vision. All of our surpluses are re-invested into our charitable work.

Our mission statement is: Great Homes, Great Services, Great People. This is our 'brand promise' to our Customers, partners and other stakeholders - a clear and succinct statement of our purpose and what we stand for. It is also underpinned by a fourth statement of "Great Foundations", which ensures the business fundamentals are in place that enable and support our charitable mission.

Our impact does not end with the bricks and mortar. We work hard to ensure our customers are living in happy and thriving communities, and we also provide opportunities for our customers to change their lives by re-entering the workplace or starting on the path to training or volunteering. We recognise that in this time of welfare reforms and increasing prices, times are hard for many, and we are committed to helping local people improve their financial wellbeing in a number of ways.

Additionally, we provide a helping hand to those members of our society who find themselves in the unenviable position of being homeless, offering a range of essential services - day and night.

Coastline is built on strong values of:

- putting our customers first
- openness, honesty and accountability
- striving to be the best
- and valuing our colleagues

With Investors in People Silver accreditation and a placing in the Top 100 Best Not-for-Profit organisations to work for, Coastline is a growing company with a strong reputation.
