We aim to provide a high quality and efficient service, carrying out all aspects of electrical work in properties owned or managed by Yorkshire Housing and are looking for individuals who want to make this happen.
Who are we:
We are proud to be a housing association that owns and manages more than 18,000 homes across Yorkshire and we’re developing thousands more.

As our work is carried out remotely we also require our Electricians to have working IT knowledge and a full driving licence is essential for this role.
What can you expect:
In return we offer £29,277 for a 37.5 hour week with the opportunity for overtime when available, 25 days annual leave (raising annually to 30 days) plus Bank Holidays. We also have a really good reward package to suit everyone – from a variety of retail discounts to a contributory pension scheme where we will match your contributions up to 9%!
We will also provide a vehicle for work, smart devices, test equipment and plant, uniform and all PPE. In summary – good base pay for 37.5 hours, overtime potential, great benefits and a fantastic work environment in a company that cares about its employees and its customers.
What’s more - we’re big on hiring based on our values and are looking for people who are committed to our company values, demonstrating this by:
Respect: communicating confidently with colleagues and customers equally
Reliability: working independently taking initiative where needed but also work to support your colleagues
Enthusiasm: focussing on the needs of our customers whilst working safely and to the highest standards.
Where will I work?
We need to operate across the entire Yorkshire region, but we aim wherever possible to deploy work to our Electricians with consideration to their home locations, as such we would be particularly interested in hearing from Electricians in the York, Malton, Keighley, Skipton and Wakefield areas.
So if you want to be part of the team that makes a real positive difference everyday and work for an organisation that prioritises its people and its customers then we want to hear from you!
