The opportunity

We can’t help but feel we’ve clicked already, but you’ll want to find out more to see if you really want to ‘swipe right’, as they say.  

If you’re looking for a Data and Performance senior leadership role with a bit of a difference and feel ready to take on your next challenge, then maybe this role is what you’ve been looking for. Here’s three things we think you should know: 

  • You’ll be a big part of shaping and driving the future of Yorkshire Housing with loads of scope and support for new ideas, innovation and progress.
  • You can work where, when and how you want with our hub, home, roam approach. No need to pick a job you can commute to over the one you really want.  
  • It’s a role with meaning, so you’ll be making a real difference to thousands of customers lives with what you do. 

So what’s this Head of Data and Performance role all about then?

Our brand new Head of Data and Performance will lead the development of an organisation wide data strategy, bringing together data management, data quality and analytics to enable sound data-driven decisions.

We’re looking for someone with the expertise to bring together an overall approach to data and performance that supports us to deliver our ambitious business strategy lead, providing really strong leadership and direction within your team of data and performance specialists but also across the business to shift culture and behaviour in relation to data management . You’ll put what’s needed in place to provide industry leading insight, analytics and management information to make sure the organisation knows its performance inside out.

You’ll already be a data expert from a customer-focused, regulated sector, with experience of leading teams and working with data architecture and Microsoft tools such as SQL, Azure Data Factory, Master Data Services and Power BI. You might have an itch to find a new challenge or looking for an organisation with a social purpose and people at the heart. If this sounds like you, then maybe we’re made for each other…

So what about us?

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. We are transforming our business by investing in people, processes and technology to deliver a consistently great experience for our customers.  This is one of a group of new leadership roles that have been created to make this happen.

Pssst. One of our values is ‘Be Yourself’. We’re passionate about inclusion and we’d love to hear from people from diverse backgrounds for this role.

The finer print

You’ll probably want to know we offer a salary of £67,671, 28 days annual leave plus public holidays, a generous pension scheme and plenty of other benefits.

Although this role is an agile / homeworking position, you’ll be comfortable travelling to and within Yorkshire as required for the role.

First stage interview dates are expected to be w/c 5th July, via MS Teams. If we click, second stage interviews are expected to be in person in the Leeds area the following week.

The closing date for this advert is 23 June 2021.

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.
