You’ll monitor the on-site progress of works to confirm specifications are met and sign off upon satisfactory completion, keeping both the customer and partner organisations regularly informed.

The stuff that sets you apart

This role would suit someone with building, maintenance or repair experience. You’ll have the ability to provide detailed and accurate schedules of work and specifications for repairs, renovations or disabled persons adaptations.

But talk it over with your manager, to make sure it fits in around what you need to do and meet business needs.

We also provide a fantastic reward package to suit everyone –a variety of amazing discounts via PerkBox, a great Healthcare cash plan called Health Shield and a contributory pension scheme where we will match your contributions up to 9%!  As well as our great benefits and a fantastic work environment, we’re absolutely a company that cares about its employees and its customers.

If you are applying for this role internally, you must inform your current line manager.

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.

Our values

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!

We are Yorkshire Housing by name and Yorkshire is our focus. We own and manage nearly 20,000 homes – and are developing thousands more.

 

Our vision is making it possible to have a place you're proud to call home

 

You might think of Yorkshire Housing as ‘just’ a housing provider, but we’re so much more than that. We’re here to make a positive difference in people’s lives. So, as well as owning and managing nearly 20,000 homes (and counting) across Yorkshire, we also:

  

  • Offer money and tenancy coaching  
  • Help older customers live at home independently  
  • Adapt homes to match the needs of our customers   
  • Carry out repairs and replace items before things go wrong  
  • Provide antisocial behaviour support  
  • Get involved with work in the community  

 

OUR PRIORITIES 

Our five priorities that will help us achieve our vision are:

 

Great Customer Experience 

 

We’ll listen to customers and use what we know about them to shape our services. Oh, and we’ll provide extra support where it’s needed. 

 

 

 

Homes and Places to be Proud of  

 

We’ll create homes that people want to live in. 

 

- Quality  

 

- Safety 

 

- Affordability 

 

We’ll also be kind to the planet and aim to be one of the first UK housing associations to stop using gas heating and hot water systems.

 

 

 

Growth 

 

We’ll deliver 8,000 new homes by 2030. They will be energy efficient, sustainable and affordable to live in. We’ll also refresh our Help to Buy and social and affordable rented options. 

 

We’ll achieve these priorities by focusing on being:  

 

 

 

Employer of Choice 

 

We’ll lead the way and make a name for ourselves as an employer. We’ll give you the right support and tools to succeed, plus a package full of benefits.

 

 

 

Strong, Resilient and Innovative Business 

 

We’ll invest in all the right things, from our ICT to our people. This will make us stronger, helping us to make a difference to our customers and be a business that people want to work for and with.
