Interested parties should:

  • Have an understanding of the housing association business model across the UK and the Republic of Ireland.

The Housing SWP advises the Housing SORP Making Body (SMB) on issues arising from the UK accounting framework relating to housing associations. It also carries out the detailed work involved in developing and maintaining the Housing SORP.

The Working Party currently consists of 17 voting members (11 senior housing association finance staff and six professional advisors).

We will select members in a fair, transparent and consistent way. The SMB will approve the final selection.

To apply, please submit a CV and covering letter by Thursday 28 March 2024. The selection panel will consider applications – there will be no interviews.

We will notify all candidates of the outcome by Friday 26 April 2024.

Please note that the first SWP meeting after completion of this recruitment process will take place on Tuesday 4 June 2024.
