Financial Analysis Manager
Social housing and its continued supply are moving up the national policy agenda. The social housing market has become increasingly complex and consequently the nature and the extent of the risks which housing associations and other Registered Providers’ boards must manage are correspondingly more challenging.
The Regulator of Social Housing (RSH) is now looking to recruit to a key role within our front line operations team. As a Financial Analysis Manager you would operate as part of a team and manage financial analysts, to deliver detailed analysis for a portfolio of the most complex Registered Providers. The objective is to secure assurance that the Regulator’s economic standards are being met and that each provider’s financial viability is being maintained. You will liaise with other managers to agree a programme of work prioritised in line with our risk appetite and resource plan. The analysis involves gaining an in-depth understanding of providers’ financial strength, their risk profile, their approach to value for money and the quality of their governance. This entails periodic site-based work at providers’ offices, combined with desktop assessments of their viability in the short and medium term.
This role would suit either an experienced manager or someone looking to take the next step on their career path and seeking to broaden their sector knowledge and skills.
The successful candidates will have a financial background and preferably a relevant professional qualification. They will be based in one of our offices in Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, London or Manchester. The role offers excellent terms and conditions including a final salary pension scheme, 33 days annual leave, performance related pay, private health screening and the opportunity to work flexibly. There is a clear progression path for Financial Analysis Managers and the RSH has a solid track record of internal promotions for professional, effective people who can demonstrate excellent analytical skills and strong financial acumen.

RSH regulates registered providers of social housing to promote a viable, efficient and well-governed social housing sector able to deliver homes that meet a range of needs. We perform our functions in a way that minimises interference and is proportionate, consistent, transparent and accountable. The objectives of the Regulator are set out in the Housing and Regeneration Act 2008.
The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) is a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government. One of the statutory committees of the HCA is the Regulation Committee, which is responsible for the regulation of social housing.
In January 2018, the HCA’s non-regulation arm adopted its new trading name Homes England. From that point, the HCA's regulation directorate, which undertakes the functions of the Regulation Committee, refers to itself as the RSH. Until relevant legislation is enacted (expected to be 1st October 2018) Homes England and RSH continue to be constituted as one body – the HCA – but operate with two distinct corporate identities.
Please note: The Regulator along with other Government departments and Government sponsored bodies have been tasked with reducing running costs. The Regulator is bound by the Government’s asset strategy which means that we must continually review and make more effective use of our offices. Although the post can be based in Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, London or Manchester its location may be subject to change and we cannot guarantee that staff will not be required to move base location in the future.
Please note – we do not accept CVs as a form of application.
