Do you thrive in a fast-paced work environment? Do you enjoy working to tight deadlines? Do you like to make a difference? If this sounds like you, this could be your perfect role.
At Johnnie Johnson Housing, we’re looking for an Asset & Capital Accountant to join us.
This role is all about providing financial support and analysis to the organisation and acting as a trusted advisor, adding value that will assist in decision making, playing a key role in advising and assisting budget holders with budgeting, costing, forecasting and financial analysis. Acting as the finance business partner to the Assets & Compliance and IT teams, you’ll be a pro-active member of the Finance team, driving continuous improvement and financial engagement across the organisation.
So now you’ve heard a bit about the role, let us tell you a bit about the team! It’s important to know who you might be working with, right?
Our Finance team is a really lovely (if we don’t mind saying so ourselves!) close knit team of twelve. We’re lead by a brand new Head of Finance and as well as providing support to the organisation, we support each other too. We work hard but we also like to have fun too and you’ll often find us catching up (on the non-financial stuff) outside of work.
We’re looking for someone who has experience of management accountant duties including month end journals, control account reconciliations, financial analysis and reporting. We’d like someone who has excellent communication and organisational skills and someone who can work collaboratively and effectively with other departments and at all levels within the organisation. We suspect you’ll be used to performing to a high standard, incorporating LEAN principles, and have experience of using a variety of IT systems.
And the benefits of working for us?
We’ve adopted a completely agile way of working meaning you can work from home and/or our brand new (and very swanky!) innovation hub, Eden Point in Cheadle Hulme! As long as our residents and customers are put first we’ll also give you a degree of flexibility using our ‘My Lifestyle’ guidelines, meaning you can attend the important things in life. So, whether you’ve got a yoga class you’d love to attend, your child’s school play or maybe it’s just that you’ve just got a new fridge being delivered, we will work with you to be flexible!
We also offer a fantastic holiday allowance of 33 days per annum (including statutory holidays) which rises to 38 days after 5 years’ service. We can offer you a 35-hour working week, an enhanced 5% employer contribution pension scheme and a recognition scheme with both financial and non-financial rewards such as gift vouchers, early finishes or even a later start! There’s loads more fantastic benefits too – you can find out more about these on our careers site!
We are a not for profit housing association, housing over 8,000 residents across the North West, North East, Yorkshire and Derbyshire. Our vision Living Longer, Living Better is simply about helping people age well and live independently for longer.
