Are you a qualified accountant with an interest in social housing?

Gateway is a well established community based housing association with just under 3000 properties primarily in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.  Gateway was formed in 2008 when Bethnal Green & Victoria Park Housing Association merged with Labo Housing Association.  Our early formation goes back to 1926 when we began life as Bethnal Green Housing Association. 

Our mission is to provide great housing, support and care for people in East London.  We primarily provide social housing including rented homes and shared ownership. We have the largest stock holding of housing for older people in Tower Hamlets. Achieving our social purpose to ‘support communities to thrive’ is important to us. We achieve our social purpose by being commercially astute.

We are currently seeking a qualified accountant to sit on our Risk & Audit Committee. You will need to demonstrate a range of competencies necessary to contribute effectively at committee level including strategic thinking, team working and excellent communications skills. You will be expected to work constructively with other committee members and the Executive Management Team to review budgets, provide assurance on the veracity of financial statements, and to scrutinize the effectiveness of the risk management framework and internal control processes.
