We are Onward, a leading provider of quality and affordable homes for rent, shared ownership and sale across the North West. Proud to do so much more than just provide a roof over our customers’ heads, we own and manage over 35,000 homes and are now one of the largest registered providers of social housing based solely in the North West of England. Highly ambitious, we’ve just launched Onward Living, our new dedicated shared ownership and home sales division which will help deliver our plans to build 1,600 affordable homes across the North West by 2023, and we have a clear vision ‘To make a positive difference in the communities we serve.’

We are looking for an exceptional, team focused and ambitious leader to undertake a broad and influential role. Onward is moving forward at pace, and as a key member of our Executive Team you’ll help ensure we grow through sector-leading financial performance and a determination to deliver the best possible outcomes for our communities. With significant potential for impact, this is a role where you’ll work in close partnership with the Chief Executive, the Board and Executive Directors on key organisation-wide issues, some of which are likely to be beyond the initial finance remit.

It’s an exciting time to join us and your positive, results focused approach will be valued within our customer centric and collegiate culture. As an energetic and commercially focused finance professional, you’ll bring experience from organisations of comparable scale and complexity along with a track record of capitalising on opportunities to enable growth, helping us make a lasting difference to peoples’ lives.
