East Kent Housing (EKH) is the country’s first “super ALMO”, providing housing services across four local authority areas, with 17,000 properties under management. The organisation was set up six years ago, and we are now in an exciting phase of our journey. We are currently undergoing major transformation and our new operating model goes live on 1 October, and this will consolidate our four areas. We are also implementing a new ICT system across the organisation, to replace the four existing systems, together with new asset management strategy, and we are committed to delivering value for money for our partner councils.
All of this means our new Head of Finance will need to bring vision, energy and a strategic approach. You will have commitment and passion, the ability to embrace change and be successful at managing relationships.
Our partnerships with our four councils are of great importance to us. You will need to build relationships and trust, and be capable of delivering for stakeholders with different priorities and perspectives.
Reporting to the Chief Executive, you will lead on the all matters relating to the financial management of East Kent Housing, ensuring that we have robust financial and budgetary systems and controls, and provide professional support for new initiatives and opportunities. You will need to have strong technical knowledge and experience, together with an appropriate accountancy qualification. You will also need an understanding of the requirements of the accounting standards applicable to a limited company, and excellent interpersonal skills with an ability to persuade and influence others.
