Director of Finance & Corporate Services

We are recruiting for a Director of Finance and Corporate Services: the post-holder will be a key member of our leadership team, working with our volunteer Board of local tenants and residents to drive forward our ambitious plans for business growth and development, to serve the community of Shettleston.

Shettleston Housing Association is a leading community based housing association, and a Scottish Charity, which has played a major role in the regeneration of the local area for over 40 years. We have a track record of providing excellent housing and community services with 2,289 tenanted homes now in management and factoring another 1241. We have plans to develop another 138 new affordable homes in the coming three years and for substantial ongoing investment in our existing homes to ensure they continue to meet the highest possible standards. We have established three wholly owned subsidiaries: Upkeep Shettleston Community Enterprises; Upkeep Recycling; and East End Housing Development Company. The Association directly employs 53 FTE staff with a further 42 FTE staff employed elsewhere within the Group.

With the impending retirement of our long serving Finance Manager we have recently taken the opportunity to restructure the senior staff team. This has led to the creation of the above post which will sit within the Executive Management team, reporting directly to the Chief Executive.

This position will have responsibility for finance, IT, HR /Organisation Development and corporate governance and compliance across the Group, and will manage three direct reports.

We are looking for an inspirational leader, committed to the ethos and values of the Association, who will develop and provide direction to the finance and corporate services team whilst helping to provide strategic direction to the organisation as a whole.

The post holder will have strong ambition to improve services, performance and value for money and support the growth of our overall business.

The appointed candidate will possess a relevant accountancy qualification. They will have wide ranging accountancy expertise and significant experience and a track record of achievement at a senior level, with good all round business awareness. They will be able to think and operate strategically. Project management and change management experience will be essential requirements for this role.
