We're looking for a dynamic Director of Finance and Resources to help lead RBH’s ambitious plans to deliver excellent services that engage and empower customers, communities, and employees.

RBH is the UK’s first tenant and employee co-owned mutual housing society with over 12,000 homes throughout the borough of Rochdale. We are proud to be owned by our tenant and employee members because we recognise that we are stronger together. This means we are continually striving to improve our services, build quality affordable homes, improve lives, and transform neighbourhoods.

Reporting to the Chief Executive, this is an opportunity to utilise your strategic leadership experience to help ensure that our tenants and employees succeed together. In 2022 we will be launching our new Corporate Strategy, so now is an ideal time to join us in this influential role where you can help to lead and shape our Society as we work collectively to deliver our promises and ambitions.

Leading teams within finance, procurement, HR, governance, legal, compliance and IT, we are looking for an inspirational and values-driven leader with experience from a comparably regulated, customer-facing sector who will share our ambitions. With a professional finance qualification, you’ll have a track record of delivering value for money services and continuous improvement to ensure that RBH remains a resilient, financially successful, and tenant-focused Society.

We have recently introduced Smart Working where you can combine working from home with working from our collaboration hubs across Rochdale, with the expectation that you will work circa 80% of you time from home or remotely.

If you require a confidential discussion, please contact our advising consultant at GatenbySanderson: Nick Roberts on 07393 013697. The closing date is 9:00am Monday 24th January 2022.
