Yorkshire Housing is proactively working to implement its equality, diversity and inclusion policy.  We positively welcome and support diversity in our workforce and welcome applications from all sections of the community.

Yorkshire Housing is half way through a major transformation programme, called Tomorrow's Yorkshire. The programme will radically improve the way we interact with our customers, eliminate inefficiencies, and empower our staff to focus on the things that matter most to our customers.

We want to make sure that our business is sustainable and that we're able to keep building homes for new customers, making repairs in the properties we own, and support customers to live in their home independently for longer.

Transformation is across the entire organisation.  It includes changing our processes, jobs, as well as introducing new IT capability.
