Join Our Friendly Team Of Housing Experts

Join our Team Unipol is a student housing charity with offices in three cities in England providing housing services to students as well as accreditation, training and advice. Our operations are not for profit, which means no profit is taken from our operations and all monies received are invested back into the organisation.

 

Unipol currently has growing turnover which is currently just £11.7m with payments to property owners adding an additional £2m of annual transactions to this sum and has complex financial administration related to its multi-faceted operations. The Finance Assistant (Purchase Ledger) undertakes important and accurate routine financial work within a team environment.  This includes dealing with both customers (including tenants and conference delegates) and suppliers.  The role is also outward facing and the Finance Assistant (Purchase Ledger) will need to deal in a friendly and efficient manner with Unipol's tenants and others who use the service. The Finance Assistant is a key member of Unipol’s financial team and is expected to play a full role in interacting with other finance staff and staff in Bradford and Nottingham as well as Leeds.  

The post requires accuracy, flexibility and organisation of own workload, under the guidance of the Assistant Finance Manager. The Finance Assistant (Purchase Ledger) must have previous work experience in a finance role together with good keyboard skills. Experience of working in a busy and demanding environment with strict deadlines would be an advantage. Good communication skills both written and oral are essential.

Experience of operating a database and any working knowledge of Microsoft Office (especially Word and Excel) and financial software, would be an advantage and the ability to train in these systems is essential. Unipol currently uses Microsoft Navision and is due to upgrade shortly to Microsoft 365.

All those working in Unipol are jointly employed by Unipol and the University of Leeds.

Interviews are expected to be held on 13 October 2021.

The Nottingham service, both its housing hub services and its own direct housing provision continues to grow and will continue to do so, with a number of new developments in the pipeline, until at least 2023.

This is a newly established post, based in the Housing Hub in Nottingham, and is intended to provide an expert office anchor and additional specialist support to help both students and landlords use Unipol’s services. This help takes the form of both general and individual advice. The post will provide important additional capacity to enable Unipol to support and improve student housing standards: web chat help and advice, using the Unipol Code Complaints system to resolve disputes and involving and working with statutory and regulatory agencies enforcing standards where necessary.

This post is also designed to provide greater focus and expertise in giving both pro-active targeted advice and reactive advice to both students and landlords and build closer working relationships with other housing advice responses both within the educational institutions and their students’ unions and in related agencies, including those within Nottingham City Council (property licensing, trading standards and environmental health). 

All those working in Unipol are jointly employed by Unipol and the University of Leeds. 

Face to face interviews are expected to be held at Unipol Student Homes, Nottingham on 15 October 2021.
