About us

We’re Abri, a housing association based in the south of England. One of the largest in fact. We've got 35,000 homes and 1,500 colleagues. And if all our 80,000 residents lived in the same place, we’d have a town roughly the size of Guildford.

We’re a passionate bunch. We think we can make a real difference. Homelessness, poverty, inequality, a lack of affordable housing. They’re all linked. They’re issues that affect so many, young and old alike. And we don’t think that’s right. We want to give people the chance to dream big and be who they want to be. Homes are at the heart of everybody’s lives. And we exist to help make good homes, and good lives a reality for everyone.

About you

We’ve all got different backgrounds, strengths and experiences. But we share the same values. It’s these shared values that bring us together as one team.

Our colleagues embrace these every day. Be the difference to our customers and colleagues, always curious and look for better solutions, achieve together by working in partnership with others, own it openly through working with others in an open and honest way, and finally embrace possibility and see changes and challenges as welcomed opportunities.

If you share our values and want to make a real difference in the world, you’re on to a winner and we’d love to hear from you! 

Your new role

We're looking for a motivated and detail oriented individual to undertake the role of Assistant Financial Accountant within our Financial Reporting team. You'll work alongside our Senior Financial Accountants, where you'll play a key role in closing the month end, reviewing general ledger accounts, posting adjustments and maintaining working files throughout the process.

You'll be AAT qualified and/or studying for ACA/ACCA/CIMA or equivalent with experience of working in a finance team outside of practice. We’re looking for someone who is committed to doing things in the right way and comfortable in quickly understanding technical and regulatory detail to ensure the accuracy of outputs.

This is an excellent opportunity to join Abri at a time of change, as we look to establish our accounting and financial reporting systems for the future. The Financial Reporting Team has overall responsibility for producing statutory and management accounts and your work covers a wide range of the figures feeding into our assessment of financial performance and position.

As a team, we look to continually improve what we do and how we do it and strive to be the source of reliable financial information on which reports, budgets and forecasts are based. If this sounds like a dream team for you, apply now! 

What you can expect from us

We want our colleagues at all levels to be bold, inspiring and not afraid to speak up and be their authentic selves.

Your wellbeing is really important to us, so you can expect a competitive reward package to ensure you and your family are supported at work and at home.

We’ll work with you to help you reach your goals through personal development plans and our in-house People Development team.

Depending on your role you may need to work a set shift pattern, or you may have greater flexibility to choose when and where you work. Either way, we strive to ensure all colleagues have a degree of flexibility to attend life’s important events. 

Be yourself

Abri is committed to promoting an inclusive culture. We want our colleagues to bring their individual differences, life experiences and knowledge into the workplace and we welcome their contribution to our amazing company. Everyone is different, everyone is unique.

Interviews will be held via Microsoft Teams.
