Job Details

The opportunity

We are recruiting for Plasterer Multi Skilled Operative who prides themself on the quality of their work to join a forward thinking & growing housing association. You will be part of  our Homeworks Team who provide quality and efficient services across the Yorkshire region.

In return you will be joining a growing organisation, with strong values, which makes a difference to our customer’s lives. You will receive quality training and development to ensure our colleagues meet our quality guidelines and work within the experienced, dynamic & friendly Homeworks Team.

What you’ll be doing?

You’ll carry out all duties as a Plasterer and multi skilled duties of Joinery, Plumbering and building related jobs to support the day to day repairs for Yorkshire Housing customers occupied and void properties.

You’ll ensure all repairs and inspections are carried out efficiently and within timescales to maximise the performance and profitability of the service

You’ll use your own initiative to resolve were practical any minor/routine technical difficulties on site, liaising with colleagues and managers as and when required.

You’ll work as part of a team, liaising with other teams, client officers and the HomeWorks Business Support team to ensure that an excellent service is delivered at all times.

You’ll liaise with customers whilst carrying out your duties in a courteous and professional manner at all times.

Due to the nature of this role you must have a full UK driving license as you will be supplied with a work vehicle. Also you will be required to be on a call out rota on call and complete out of hours repairs and maintenance service as necessary.

The stuff that sets you apart

This role would suit someone  with detailed and wide-ranging knowledge of multi skilled / building related activities.

You’ll have related Building/Joinery/ Plumbing qualification (C&G, NVQ or equiv) or time served experience.

You’ll operate as a key part of a multi-trade team delivering works, working flexibly to meet deadlines and high quality standards.

What’s in it for you?

We offer a salary of £27,880 per annum for a 37.5 hour week, 25 days annual leave (raising annually to 30 days) plus Bank Holidays. We also promote a flexible working culture, as long as these fit in around the needs of your role. So you don’t need to take a day off to do that parent child reading class or take your pet to the vets or doing both! 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.

The finer print

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

You must hold full UK driving license as this role as you will be supplied with a work vehicle and you will be expected to travel across the Yorkshire region.

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.  

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!


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 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.






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.
