A new borrowing experience

Deputy CEO and Chief Finance Officer - Central London/home working, Flexible working: P/T or F/T - Salary £100-£120,000 p.a.

This is an exciting new executive finance role and an opportunity to make a real difference. MORhomes is a ground breaking initiative to set up a borrowing vehicle for the affordable housing sector. Over 60 major borrowing housing associations have come together and set up a new plc which borrows on its own balance sheet and lends to housing associations. Advantages to borrowers include quick and efficient access to the debt capital markets, much greater flexibility and overall lower costs of borrowing. Borrowers are also the shareholders, so any surplus we make will go back into social housing.

We raised and lent over £300m in our first year of operation, making us already the market leader in debt aggregation for the housing sector, and have a business plan to increase this towards £1billion per year in the future.


Reporting directly to the CEO you will need to be a self-starter with the drive to lead and keep on top of a whole range of executive functions in a fast-moving environment. You will have experience of working at a senior level in a commercial finance function and be able to operate at executive and board level. As deputy to the CEO you will be confident in overseeing all the activities of the business and comfortable with establishing and maintaining excellent working relations with a wide range of stakeholders. Experience of corporate finance and debt capital markets will be an advantage.
