Service Charge Accountant
Letchworth Garden City
Up to £30,000 pa
Full time, permanent

Our world is changing. Against a backdrop of financial difficulty for some and an inaccessible housing market for many, we’re here to tackle challenges familiar to us all.
We have started to develop a new approach to customer services, rent collection, income maximisation and flexible housing management.  To help achieve our goals, the Service Charge Accountant will be responsible for the calculation of all service charge estimates and actuals, as well as rent and other property charges.
You will work to deliver timely information/data for inclusion in resident communications, as well as preparing charge data for system uploads.  Inquisitive and able to investigate anomalies, you will look to improve processes and to articulate findings, and bases for calculations behind the charges, to non-financial colleagues.
The successful candidate must have general housing finance experience and accounting knowledge.  Ideally you will have a good level of legal knowledge relating to leasehold and service charges but it is more important that you are methodical and organised.  You must also have good knowledge of Microsoft Office to include Excel skills (v:lookups, pivots and filters).
The ability to thrive under pressure to meet deadlines is essential.
