Accounts Assistant (Rent & Service Charge)



Do you have experience in a finance or accounting role?

Are you looking for the next step in your career for a forward thinking organisation?

Our client currently has an opening in their rent and service charge department.  This is an excellent opportunity for the right person to start their career with a people focused Housing Association.   

Our client is a dynamic and ambitious 18,000 unit Housing Association based in Bedford and operating throughout the Oxford to Cambridge growth corridor. The organisation employs 400 people, has an annual turnover in excess of £120m and a development programme that will see it build around 3,000 new homes over the next five years making it one of the top 25 of developing associations.

You’ll assist with income maximisation, the collection of service charges and will work to uncover inconsistencies and/or other issues. Working closely with a Rent & Service Charge Officer, you’ll deliver an excellent service to all customers, ensuring that they’re always getting value for money.  

To succeed in this role, you’ll have excellent numeracy skills and an ability to understand, analyse and manipulate information and data.  Previous experience in a finance / accounts role will stand you in good stead, as will any IT skills using financial software packages.  Most importantly, you’ll be keen to work using your own initiative, offer ideas for improvement and hit the ground running!

In return our client offers a competitive salary, 28 days annual holiday (plus bank holidays) increasing with service, contributory pension, free life assurance, free private medical cover, reduced gym membership and canteen.
