About Hodge

For over 50 years, we’ve shared the same simple mission: to really make a positive difference for our customers and communities. This ethos is in our DNA as we are 79% owned by a charity, the Hodge Foundation.

In order to continue to grow we have a clear focus on ensuring that we are operationally excellent. As Hodge continues to embark on its next chapter, the Bank has already seen a large amount of growth both in terms of financial performance but importantly its colleagues. Our strategic vision is underpinned by our people and our investment in our colleagues. Our culture is what makes us special and ultimately what delivers our purpose to make a positive difference for our customers and communities.

Our aim is to open financial possibilities where options seem limited. Helping a family get a mortgage, saving for that dream or investing in or developing property. All of our customers get much more than just products: we give them simple solutions and support when they need it most.

The role

Hodge’s ambition is to become a truly customer-centric organisation. We’re looking for an experienced individual who understands that the key in delivering our ambition of truly superb customer service is through our people.

As an integral part of the wider Finance team, your focus will be to support the Regulatory Reporting Manager with regulatory reporting within the organisation, ensuring that information is completed accurately and on a timely basis for the review of senior managers, Board members and external regulators.  You will be responsible for the successful implementation of new regulatory standards and working closely with all areas of the business to ensure Hodge’s Pillar III, ICAAP and Recovery Plan documentation is robust.

What will your day look like?

Your key responsibilities as Regulatory Reporting Accountant will include:

  • Ensuring the Bank’s COREP & FINREP manuals and regulatory interpretation documents are kept up to date for any changes in the business or regulation as required and approved on an annual basis.
  • Working with the Finance Planning and Analysis team to develop business plans and forecasts over a 1-year budget horizon and strategic 5-year business plan horizon and identifying the impact on regulatory limits.
  • Assisting with the assessment of new products from a regulatory viewpoint.
  • Taking ownership in addressing queries by internal audit.
  • Supporting the creation of a continuous improvement culture within the Regulatory reporting team and the wider Finance function.
  • Providing advice and support to colleagues on queries of a more complex or technical nature, identifying training needs and recommending or providing training/coaching for colleagues where appropriate.
  • Reviewing and maintaining operational policies and job cards (systems of internal control) to ensure that they are sufficiently robust to adequately safeguard the Bank’s assets and where weaknesses are identified ensure remedial action is taken in a timely manner.
  • Identifying, evaluating, and managing all significant risks and where appropriate report on risk identified elsewhere in the Bank.
  • Undertaking relevant project work when required.

Are you the one for us?

  • Qualified Accountant – ACCA or equivalent
  • Demonstrable experience in financial or regulatory reporting
  • Sound financial/ technical acumen
  • Strong understanding and awareness of a regulatory environment
  • Meticulous, analytical and detail focused
  • Excellent organisational, time management and project management skills
  • Proactive and self motivated.
