We are recruiting for 2 x qualified, experienced Electricians who pride themselves on the quality of their work to join a forward thinking & growing housing association. You will be part of our regional HomeWorks Team who provide quality and efficient services around Yorkshire region.

You might think of Yorkshire Housing as ‘just’ a housing provider, but we’re so much more than that. Yes, we own and manage nearly 20,000 homes (and counting) across Yorkshire and make it possible for current and future customers to have a place they’re proud to call home but we’re also all about making a positive difference in people’s lives.

As a colleague of the Yorkshire Housing Team you will also receive:

  • 37.5 hour week with the opportunity for overtime.
  • You will also be provided a vehicle for work, fuel card,  smart devices, test equipment, & everything you need for your role.
  • A genuine caring culture which puts colleagues at the heart of what we do.
  • A growing, stable organisation which provides job security, growth & opportunities.
  • A contributory pension scheme where we will match your contributions up to 9%

What you’ll be doing?

You’ll ensure all installations, repairs and inspections are carried out efficiently and within timescales to maximise the performance of the service and deliver an exceptional customer experience.  You will always work safely within the terms of our own safety manual and the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act.

You’ll also be using your own initiative, resolve where practical any minor/routine technical difficulties on site but also working as part of a team liaising with other trades, HomeWorks administration and suppliers.

You’ll be liaising with the public and tenants whilst carrying out your duties in a courteous and professional manner, always demonstrating the Yorkshire Housing Behaviours and Values.

As a fully qualified Electrician with relevant experience you will have full UK driving license.

You will also be required from time to time to work out of hours repairs and maintenance service as necessary and may be required to take part in a call out rota for emergency works cover.

If a competitive candidate pool is identified, we reserve the right to close the role early therefore, we would encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible.

A bit more about us

We’ve got a few ‘house rules’ at Yorkshire Housing (no pun intended!). One of them is work is something that you do, not somewhere that you go and another is that we think in careers, not jobs. Our flexible working environment and friendly culture means you can be yourself, take advantage of development opportunities and succeed – that’s just how we roll. 

We’re inclusive and welcoming and offer a fun and open culture with a shared belief in making a positive difference to people’s lives – it really does feel like joining a big family!

Our values

We’re looking for people who want to get stuck in and make a positive difference to people’s lives. We want you to own the work you do and achieve impact.

You’ll make it happen by being curious and creating trust with our customers and each other. We want you to love what you do and have fun along the way.
