For over 30 years, HomeStart Finance has existed for one simple reason – to make home ownership a reality for more people in more ways. While it is a lending provider, it is not a bank. HomeStart believes that people are at the centre of what it does, and employees are central to success. This role is open due to the recent promotion of the previous incumbent, Andrew Mills, to the CEO position.
The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) is responsible for leading and developing the financial, information services, analytical, business intelligence and treasury functions for the organisation, and contributes strategically to all drivers of organisational performance. The role also oversees the fiscal and fiduciary responsibilities of the organisation in conjunction with the CEO, the Board and its associated sub-committees. A key member of the Executive, the CFO assists the team with achieving their plans, providing financial, strategic and market advice as well as leadership across the organisation.
Applications are welcome from proven senior finance executives ideally with CA/CPA qualifications. Strategic thinking, contemporary leadership capability, strong financial acumen and highly developed communication, stakeholder relationship building, analytical and negotiation skills are essential. Other important strengths include role modelling the energy, warmth, empathy, humility, integrity and credibility necessary to be successful in such a role. Corporate governance experience including interaction with Board and Audit Committees is advantageous, while experience in the financial services sector may be an advantage but is not essential.
This is a rare opportunity to join a significant, stable and highly respected lending provider in a role where you will be making a genuine difference to the community.
