We need an exceptional figure to take control of our financial reporting.

Teign Housing is a successful social landlord employing over 90 ambitious, committed people, responsible for managing more than 3,700 homes across Devon. We are passionate about delivering exceptional customer service, and, as our Lead Management Accountant, you will be central to everything we do as you help us build sustainable communities and provide cleaner, greener and safer neighbourhoods.

At Teign Housing, we’re passionate about giving our residents the best possible homes and our team the best and most flexible careers. Our culture of agile working means our 110 people enjoy an exceptional work/life balance, with the option of spending much of their time based at home. We believe giving you choice over where and how you work will improve both your wellbeing and your performance – creating a win-win situation for you, for us and for the thousands of people who rely on us.

About the Lead Management Accountant role

In this key position, you will be part of a small team and take responsibility for our financial and statutory reporting. Acting as the main point of contact for our annual external audit, you will prepare and review management accounts, key reconciliations, KPIs and scorecards whilst taking the lead in setting our budget and providing comprehensive advice to operational managers. Equally importantly, you will be working on our fixed asset register, VAT returns and the calculation and updating of rent and service charges, so you can expect considerable variety and an enormous impact on our bottom line.

About you

A highly experienced management accountant, you will hold ACCA/CIMA status or the equivalent, and will certainly be an expert in general ledgers, asset registers, statutory accounts, and reporting. Familiarity with accounting requirements for capital projects would also be useful, as would a proven record in change management, but it’s your ability to scrutinise information, explain financial concepts to non-specialist audiences and meet stretching targets and deadlines that will matter most.


As an Investor in People Platinum organisation, you will be joining a company that creates a supportive high-performance culture. We offer an excellent benefits package with a contributory pension scheme, 25 days’ leave per year plus bank holidays, free parking and an agile, modern working environment.
