We are a charitable housing association that owns and manages more than 18,000 homes – and developing thousands more – across Yorkshire. We also provide a range of services so that people can live independently. All our profits are reinvested so that we can do even more for our customers. Our ambition is that everyone has the opportunity to live in a quality home they can afford.

We are currently seeking a Business Test Analyst/Trainer to be based at Leeds on a Temporary contract until 13 December 2019 for 35 hours per week. If you are internal and applying for this role, this will act as a secondment opportunity.

As a Business Test analyst/Trainer, you will work with the YH business and 3rd Party software suppliers, to test and train users on the delivered software. You will also be responsible for executing tests against systems, provide training and mentoring on new applications and working with 3rd parties to develop training material. 

The role would suit a Learning and Development trainer with a passion and bias towards technology, systems or IT training, or a Test analyst with a transferable skill set to transfer their knowledge to end users in an engaging and impactful way.

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 going through a major transformation programme, called Today'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.
