Do you like looking for patterns in information and spotting the errors? Can you picture the house behind the data? Do you like using vlookups and pivot tables?
If you’re looking for a Asset Planning Analyst role and ready to take on your next challenge, then maybe this is what you’ve been looking for. It’s a role with meaning, so you’ll be making a real difference to thousands of customers lives with what you do.
Our assets are the homes we own and manage across Yorkshire. We need to know about them so that we can look after them for our customers and because those properties are financial security.
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.
What you’ll be doing?
You’ll validate, maintain and improve the housing data held on our Asset Management System. And you will use that data to plan improvements to our properties at individual and scheme level.
You’ll use a variety of internal and external sources to produce accurate reports which bring fresh insight to the organisation about the viability of our properties. This includes environmental, energy and financial databases, such as the net present value tools, for options appraisals.
You’ll maintain, update and cleanse the energy data of YH housing stock to ensure and monitor good environmental performance.
You’ll understand how SAP scores are calculated, for use in identifying possible heating or insulation upgrades and develop a knowledge of factors which affect the environmental sustainability of our homes.
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 stuff that sets you apart?
This role would suit someone with 1-2 years’ experience of systems such as Keystone, Pimms, QL or other stock condition data systems.
You’ll have the ability to use Excel to analyse and manipulate data, including generating reports and data reconciliation.
You’ll be highly organised, with the flexibility to adapt to changing situations, competing deadlines and self-discipline.
You’ll have the ability to communicate effectively and network with people, providing clear information and building effective working relationships.
You’ll be a logical thinker, able to problem solve and explain complex issues in a simple, structured and clear manner.
You’ll have strong analytical skills with an ability to see trends behind the data and strong Microsoft Excel skills including vlookups and pivot tables.
What’s in it for you?
In return we offer £28,472 per annum for a 35 hour week, 25 days annual leave (raising a day per year) 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.
