Populo Living is Newham’s dedicated property company, focused on creating affordable, sustainable communities. 100% owned by Newham Council, we are an innovative property and housing company that is building homes to help solve the housing crisis. Our new developments include 50% affordable housing, a ratio we are able to achieve through strong in-house development expertise and an unrelenting focus on commerciality. We have built 800 homes to date and have 700 with planning permission to be delivered in next 2 years. Our current portfolio includes a mix of c.250 affordable homes, both rented and leasehold, managed by our RP subsidiary Populo Homes, as well as direct to market rental properties.

We are seeking a Head of Finance – Treasury and Financial Planning reporting to the Director of Finance and Resources, with a primary focus on how the Populo Living Group manages its capital and planning, and how money is distributed throughout the different facets of the business.

The successful candidate will be responsible for leading and producing multiple financial functions of the group, including how the group plans and allocates finances, treasury management services and management account functions. As well as leading these functions, you also be responsible for signing off and approving payroll functions and finance requests made by other parts of the business. Our new Head of Finance will be a second pair of eyes for the Director of Finance and Resources and undertake duties for them when they are unavailable.

Alongside this, there will be a responsibility to line manage different members of the finance team – supporting them in their work and being a mentor for more junior members of the team.

Supporting the Director of Finance and Resources with Treasury matters such as arranging new funding, banking, loan compliance and cash flow will be a big part of the role.
