We are Accent Housing. We provide homes where they are most in need and do everything we can to improve people’s lives through safe, secure, quality affordable homes. Our 20,000 homes are spread over the North, East and South of the country, and are home to over 41,000 residents and their families.

Our new ‘Building Better Futures’ strategy highlights our plans to build at least 1,500 affordable rented and low-cost home ownership homes by 2024, and we will look at every opportunity to build even more, to help even more people in need. In addition, we are investing in our existing properties to make sure they offer our residents the very best in living standards to make them a home for life.  

We live and breathe our values – we are Smart, we are Driven, we are Caring and we are Inclusive, so it’s essential that you are too. Working in close partnership with the Executive Director Finance and ICT, this is a pivotal role with considerable potential for impact.


You will take a lead on devising and implementing the financial strategy for the group, which will include raising new money, solving complex issues such as corporate restructuring, taking a lead on special projects such as future M&A / disposals and as well as addressing pension issues and leading on the annual financial reporting cycle. We are moving forward at pace, and as a key member of our wider leadership team you’ll help ensure that we grow through sector-leading financial performance and a focus on delivering the best possible customer outcomes.

This is a role where you can grow and become involved in areas which are well beyond traditional finance. It’s a very positive time to join us and your results-focused, strategic approach will be valued as we continue to grow. Energetic and commercial, with a professional accountancy qualification, you’ll bring experience from organisations of comparable scale and complexity along with a track record of capitalising on opportunities to enable growth, helping us make a lasting difference to our residents’ lives.

If you require a confidential discussion, please contact our advising consultants at GatenbySanderson: Simon Wing on 0207 426 3976 or Nick Roberts on 07393 013697.

The closing date is Friday 10th December at 5pm.
