Are you an experienced Finance Officer driving value and looking for a new challenge or opportunity to make a difference?

Do you want to work in a dynamic organisation in the highly regarded social housing sector using your finance and customer relations skills? 

Do you have proven communications skills and a desire to deliver high quality financial services and solutions to our partners?

If you have experience of commercial or housing finance along with a sound knowledge of capital development and cash-flow management, we’d love to hear from you. We will provide both external and internal training and support in your new role with Kingdom.

About Us

We are a leading provider of housing and support in Fife, East Central Scotland. Last year we delivered an £85 million Private Placement which was unique in Scotland being six times over subscribed, and we renegotiated our traditional bank lending facilities whilst taking innovative funding solutions such as the Scottish Government Charitable bonds.

About the Role

We have a unique opportunity and are looking for someone to join our Finance team in an assistant manager role that will focus on delivering financial services to our external partners and managing and maintaining those key relationships. You will play a key role in the delivery of financial services to our external partners according to an agreed statement of services. You will be responsible for ensuring the financial services provided meet the standards of the external partners and the accounting treatment is properly recorded to meet their policies and strategies.   

About You:

We’re ideally looking for someone with experience of providing operational financial services in a medium sized (SME) commercial organisation or as part of a housing organisation. You may be part or fully qualified in accounting and business, or you may be qualified by experience.

You will be able to demonstrate the ability to use computerised accounting systems, prepare and provide reports for senior management. You should be familiar with housing finance and accounting procedures and practices in social housing.  You must have proven communication, influencing and relationship management skills.

You will need to have a driving licence and access to a car for business use and will be required to complete a satisfactory Basic Police Act Disclosure Scotland check.

We offer:

An attractive salary and benefits package including a contributory pension scheme, company sick pay scheme and generous annual leave entitlement. We will consider flexible working options to support you to have a good work life balance.

The closing date for applications is 1 November 2019. A group discussion and Interview will likely take place on 21 or 22 November 2019.
