Rutherford Cross retained by Wheatley Group to appoint Financial Controller

Wheatley Group (Wheatley) is Scotland’s leading housing, care and property-management group. Owning or managing over 93,600 homes, Wheatley delivers a range of award-winning services aimed at “Making Homes and Lives Better” for over 210,000 customers across 19 local authorities in Scotland. Services are delivered through Registered Social Landlords, the care organisation and a commercial property management subsidiary. The activities of the Group are supported by Wheatley Solutions, the support services subsidiary and the Groups charitable trust, Wheatley Foundation, invests its funding to create opportunities for people to improve their lives.

Wheatley’s efforts in supporting communities through the crisis were recognised nationally. The Group received support from Scottish Government’s Food Fund which was announced by the First Minister Nicola Sturgeon in her daily coronavirus briefing on national television.

Most recently the First Minister attended the official launch of the Groups £6million ‘Here for You’ fund. The fund will support tenants of Wheatley’s Registered Social Landlords – Wheatley Homes Glasgow, Dumfries and Galloway Housing Partnership, Dunedin Canmore, Loretto and WLHP – as well as tenants of Lowther Homes, which is Scotland’s largest private-rent property company during the cost-of-living crisis.

Due to a couple of recent internal promotions, an opportunity has arisen to introduce a talented individual to the business. The role will report directly to the Director of Financial Reporting, manage a team of finance professionals within the Group Finance function, and interface regularly with other members of the Senior and Executive team.

This position represents an exceptional career opportunity for an ambitious, driven, qualified accountant, who is able to provide first class financial and business support to the Executive Team.
