Are you a strategic communications professional who can make internal and external campaigns land? Can you help take employees on a journey of change?  Do you know how to influence the influencers on housing matters ?

If so, we’d like to hear from you because we’ve created an exciting new communications manager role at Yorkshire Housing. This is a full time role based in Leeds on a six month contract.

We own and manage more than 18,000 homes in the region – and we’re on course to bring at least another 3,000 by 2021. That’s a big undertaking but we’ve answered the call to build more much-needed homes of all types. And we provide a host of services to help our customers stay in their homes independently or boost their employment prospects.

Which is why we want a communications manager to help us get the message across to our employees, our customers, local politicians, journalists, partners and anyone with a keen eye on the housing agenda. You’re a leader and you’ll have experience of managing communications in a complex organisation and you’ll have the qualification to back it up. You’ll lead and develop a dedicated communications team that’s up for the challenge.

We want to be even more successful which is why we’ve embarked on our ambitious change programme . We really want to engage our employees during this period of immense change because they are integral to our success.
