Job Details

If you’re looking for a Repairs Team Leader role  and ready to take on your next challenge, then maybe this is what you’ve been looking for. This is a role with meaning, so you’ll be making a real difference to thousands of customers lives with what you do.


What you’ll be doing?

You’ll manage and lead a team of key front-line surveyors who are ultimately delivering the survey specifications of  day to day repairs and  void repairs in our homes.

You’ll drive the team to meet financial targets and deliver data to different parts of the business in relation to asset management, building relationships and influencing a variety of teams along the way, particularly the building repairs team. 

You’ll also monitor and report on the repairs budget along with controlling spend to ensure that overspend does not occur.

And you’ll take ownership when dealing with any complaints or escalations in relation to the surveys team and always looking to improve processes ensuring quality delivery of works.  

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 proven experience in managing a team and contractors.

You’ll also have experience of budget management and good knowledge of building construction and services.

You’ll be a confident communicator and have the ability to develop effective relationships with a variety of  teams and 3rd party suppliers.

Also you’ll be able to prioritise your workload and be proficient in using IT systems.  You will be required to cover out of hours call escalations on a rota basis with the other Repairs Team Leaders.


What’s in it for you?

In return we offer £37,668 per annum for a 35 hour week, 25 days annual leave (raising annually to 30 days) plus Bank Holiday and a £2,000 annual car allowance. 


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 and have access to vehicle for work purposes.

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.


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.
