Director of Finance
Milnbank Housing Association
£68,910 - £72,133 per annum (EVH Grade SM12 to SM14)
Milnbank Housing Association (MHA) is a leading community-focused housing association in Glasgow, dedicated to providing high-quality affordable housing and exceptional community services. We are seeking a highly skilled and motivated Director of Finance to join our Leadership Team, driving our financial strategy and ensuring our continued success and growth.
As Director of Finance, you will lead and manage the Finance function, ensuring robust financial control and efficient management of MHA's accounts. You will oversee the preparation of financial statements, annual returns, and ensure compliance with statutory requirements and best practices. Collaborating with the Leadership Team, you will develop annual budgets and long-term financial plans, monitor financial performance, and provide management accounts while advising on necessary actions. Your role will also involve managing cash flow, treasury activities, and investment strategies, as well as ensuring compliance with lenders' reporting requirements and maintaining strong internal controls. Additionally, you will supervise the effective utilisation of integrated IT systems and contribute to corporate planning and the strategic development of MHA’s subsidiary, Milnbank Property Services.
You will report directly to the Chief Executive and work closely with main lenders, financial institutions, professional treasury management organisations, and key stakeholders. Internally, you will engage with the Leadership Team, Milnbank Housing Association Management Committee, the Finance team, Milnbank Property Services team, and the wider staff group.
To be successful in this role, you should have substantial management experience in a relevant organisation, with a proven ability to communicate complex financial information to diverse audiences. Significant experience in business planning, budgeting, and financial performance monitoring is essential, alongside strong leadership skills and experience in managing and motivating teams. You should be proficient in managing relationships with lenders and ensuring compliance with loan agreements, as well as being a strategic thinker with excellent analytical, negotiation, and influencing skills. Membership of a recognised professional accountancy body (e.g., ACCA, CIPFA) is required, along with competence in Microsoft Office products.
Ideally, you will have experience with a Registered Social Landlord or housing-related organisation, an understanding of the Housing Association grant and funding regime, and experience in the not-for-profit or public sector environment. Candidates from other sectors are also welcomed, as long as transferability to the housing sector is demonstrated in application. Access to a vehicle for occasional business use and a current driving licence would be advantageous.
MHA offers an attractive rewards package including 25 days annual leave plus 15 public holidays per annum, a SHAPS Defined Contribution Pension Scheme with up to 10% employer contribution, and a contribution towards the cost of prescribed spectacles.
Join us at Milnbank Housing Association and contribute to a vibrant and impactful organisation dedicated to making a difference in the community.
