The opportunity

If you’re looking for a Senior HR Business Partner role in a People Team with a bit of a difference and feel ready to take on your next challenge, then this role could be for you!  

Here’s some things we think you should know:    

  • You’ll have the opportunity to help shape the People and Culture Strategy  

  • You can work where, when and how you want with our Hub, Home & Roam approach.   

  • It’s a role with meaning, so you’ll be making a real difference to colleagues' experience at work and to thousands of customers’ lives with what you do. 

So, what’s working in the People Team as a Senior Business Partner all about then? 

As a custodian of our culture, values and behaviours, this role is not only about being a trusted partner to the business and senior leaders, but it’s also about embedding a clear vision and direction for our BP and Advisor team.   

Building trusting relationships, providing valuable insights and bringing innovative ideas and solutions will be just some of the ways in which you can help shape the future of Yorkshire Housing. You’ll develop an approach within the team which focuses on us delivering an excellent colleague experience to help us become an employer of choice.  

You’ll lead on key people projects such as wellbeing and performance which contribute to the delivery of our People and Culture Strategy.  

You’ll be credible, curious and have experience of working with and influencing at a head of service and director level. We don’t need you to know loads about housing, just a lot about what makes people tick.  

And 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’re transforming our business by investing in people, processes and technology to deliver a consistently great experience for our customers.   

The stuff that sets you apart: 

You’ll be a seasoned HR leader with extensive experience of partnering with directors and senior leaders in a fast-paced environment along with a track record of the development and delivery of people strategies and plans covering the full spectrum of HRM and development.    Your experience will be extensive in employee relations and employment law with demonstrable evidence of managing complex ER issues.  TUPE experience is preferred along with a MCIPD qualification. 

You’ll also have experience of organisational and job design along with supporting talent and succession reviews.  You’ll have also used data for meaningful insight and be able to demonstrate how this work has positively impacted results. 

Personally, you’ll be natural coach and a curious independent thinker, calm under pressure but prepared to push boundaries along with being a strong team person with positive influencing skills.  When establishing trusted professional relationships, this will come naturally to you, and you’ll also be great at managing expectations with customers.  Working at pace and collaboratively will be something you are used to, and you’ll absolutely demonstrate a strong commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion. 

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. 

What’s in it for you? 

In return we offer £50,647 for a 35-hour week with 25 days annual leave (raising annually to 30 days) plus Bank Holidays. 

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. 

We 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, take your pet to the vets or both! Just talk it over with your manager, to make sure it fits in around what you need to do and meet business needs. 


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.
