Chief Financial Officer: Launch Housing

Launch Housing via People for Purpose - Melbourne, VIC

Banking & Finance
Source: uWorkin


About the role

  • Key leadership role driving business transformation
  • Join an innovative organisation aiming for world best
  • Use your finance & technology skills to ensure sustainability

Launch Housing is entering an exciting period of renewal with unprecedented levels of government investment accelerating implementation of Launch Housing’s new high-impact strategy that aims to reverse the rate of street homelessness in Melbourne, and beyond.

Launch Housing needs a finance leader to help them meet the moment. Any rapid expansion carries risk and their highly engaged and commercial Board and CEO want a versatile, personable and engaged finance professional to help them steer towards good growth.

Although the majority of current expenditure is salary related and tied to government contracts for homelessness service provision, it is expected that housing assets will quickly increase in value as new projects get delivered necessitating close attention to capital and debt management structures. The organisation is also leveraging closer partnerships with impact investors, philanthropy and corporates to complement existing revenue streams and demonstrate impact. The move to mobile work and increased cyber security threats also requires thoughtful investment in information technology upgrades, including asset management and procurement systems, as well policies and procedures as part of a general uplift in corporate capability. 

Reporting to the CEO and as a member of the senior team this role will lift the capability of finance and technology functions, whilst leading and supporting peers to deliver good growth necessary for ‘moment in time’ success.

To be successful in this role, you will:

  • Role model behaviours that exhibit Launch Housing’s service philosophy and values in action.
  • Have CA/CPA qualifications with considerable senior level experience in financial and management accounting.
  • Possess strong analytical, data manipulation, communication and influencing skills.
  • Have an understanding and affinity for the way services are commissioned by government.
  • Have considerable people leadership skills and be able to hold others and self to account.
  • Be highly collaborative utilising enterprise and systems thinking to generate and create shared value.
  • Display transparency – be able to clearly outline to differing management levels across the organisation the workings and reasoning behind high level financial decisions.
  • Develop and nurture a partnership culture between the finance function and other areas within Launch Housing.
  • Have an appropriate sense of urgency – able to respond quickly and clearly to stakeholders within the organisation, enabling them to make informed decisions that allows them to then get things done.
