Leasehold Finance Officer (3 Posts)

Hackney is London's most diverse, dynamic borough. Reaching from the Square Mile to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, this is an area of rapid economic growth, particularly in technology, media, fashion and other creative industries. Hackney has more green spaces than any other inner London borough; some of the capital's finest schools; first class transport connections; excellent public services; and thriving arts, cultural and retail sectors. We seek people with ambition, creativity and commitment to ensure our economic growth provides benefits for everyone and creates opportunities to transform the lives of residents.

Our Leasehold & Right to Buy Services (LRTBS) is changing to enable the team to fully meet evolving customer needs including the delivery of 1,800 new leasehold homes across the borough. This is an exciting and challenging time for the team to extend its knowledge and skills and provide customers with an excellent service. It is also an ideal time for you to join us.

We are looking for well organised officers with sound financial and analytical skills, to ensure the accurate and timely billing of charges including service charges, major works, reserve fund and shared ownership rent whilst increasing customer satisfaction and providing financial assistance to the team.

With housing in London under extreme pressure, maximising our income is an important way of improving services. We need people with a good eye for detail who can demonstrate they will achieve performance targets while working accurately and effectively. As one of our Leasehold Finance Officers, you will be responsible for a range of financial tasks including calculating service charges, major works and rents, undertaking statutory Section 20 consultation and the efficient maintenance of customer accounts and related databases.

On a day to day basis you will perform accurate calculations that comply with financial regulations. With good understanding of leasehold services and financial experience, you will contribute to service improvements and provide a high quality customer service to our residents.

You should have a leasehold or finance background with good customer focus and attention to detail. You will need good knowledge of relevant housing legislation and financial practices. To thrive in this role you will need a flexible approach and be able to work well under pressure.

At Hackney, we go that extra mile for our people; we offer a work environment which is stimulating, fast moving and supportive, giving you the chance to use your skills and develop new ones within a high profile organisation. .
