Job Introduction

Are you a recent graduate or someone keen to explore working for a leading charity and housing provider? Maybe you’re both. If so, all the better. We’re looking for a conscientious self-starter who can provide professional and efficient support services to the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and their department.

This position is for a 12 months fixed term contract, with potential to become permanent

Main Responsibility

Done well, this is much more than a PA role. This is a role that intuitively supports what needs doing across the department; from assisting with recruitment and people issues through to project and event management this role truly has a hand in ensuring the department is running effectively and staff are well placed to deliver for customers. You will work closely with the CFO and their senior management team, but you will also be available to support front-line officers who deal with customers.

The Ideal Candidate

You’ll be a do-er, competent and eager to go to a problem to help coordinate and sort it out. Working with senior leaders, sometimes on confidential or sensitive issues, you’ll be diligent, loyal and discrete. Someone with a desire to work in customer service, housing or on public service outcomes would be a real bonus, but not essential.

Existing post holders have used this role to get a thorough grasp of the organisation and its needs and provide a launchpad into various other departments – it really could be the beginning of a great career in customer service, housing or many others, offering you the opportunity to gain real insight into how a CFO / executive director works and to collaborate with them on a daily basis!

If this sounds like the challenge you’re looking for, then we’d love to hear from you.

Benefits

In return we offer:

  • Excellent annual leave allowance and flexible working opportunities (qualifying period may apply)
  • Generous pension scheme
  • Enhanced maternity, paternity and adoption pay – we offer enhanced maternity and adoption pay in addition to statutory entitlements (qualifying period may apply)
  • Employee assistance – free confidential advice and counselling services provided by independent specialist organisations
  • Health cash plan
  • Staff discounts – we give our staff access to discounts at hundreds of major retailers, gyms, restaurants, entertainment, days out, insurance and much more
  • Interest free loans: season ticket loan, tenancy deposit loan and training loan
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Life Assurance

About the Company

Notting Hill Genesis is now one of the largest housing associations in London and the south east. We own and manage more than 66,000 homes and employ around 2,000 staff. We provide homes across a range of tenures and are committed to continuing to deliver housing that is affordable to all. Our roots reach back to the 1960s when our legacy organisations were established by local people who shared a similar vision – to house west London’s working poor, providing them a home from which to build themselves and their families a secure future.

Our people

We value our people and both respect and celebrate their differences. We’re proud to say that our colleagues come from different backgrounds, with varied outlooks and are from all over the world. We encourage and are committed to diversity. We know that when people with varied experiences and unique points of view come together, it makes us a stronger organisation and more able to help the wide range of residents that we serve. We want all our colleagues to bring their full selves to work in a culture and environment based on respect and fairness, regardless of role, background or ability.

Our pledges

We are proud signatories of the G15 group’s diversity pledge to encourage more diversity in the boardroom and at senior level. The pledge on Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) diversity commits NHG to reflect the ethnic diversity of the communities we work in at all levels and particularly at senior managerial, leadership and board levels.

We have under-representation of BAME colleagues at this level and are keen to fill this gap. We welcome applications from everyone. For this role, we especially encourage BAME candidates to join us and be part of an inclusive culture that celebrates diversity, equality of opportunity and provides a place for you to grow your career.

We are also a Stonewall Diversity Champion, a Disability Confident employer and have signed up to Harry’s Pledge. We actively monitor the diversity of our workforce and strive to show equal representation throughout all levels of the organisation.
