Job Details

We’re looking for a proactive, energetic and highly organised Lettings Manager to join our brilliant Lettings team. You’ll be joining an innovative social housing provider, with ambitious growth plans, so we’re interested in hearing from individuals who are ready to embrace their next challenge.

You might think of Yorkshire Housing as ‘just’ a housing provider, but we’re so much more than that. We own and manage nearly 20,000 homes (and counting) across Yorkshire and our mission is to make it possible for current and future tenants to live in a place they’re proud to call home.

You’ll be on the front-line of our services, helping our customers to find their new home. It’s a role with meaning, and you’ll be really making a difference in people’s lives. Are you interested yet?

What you'll be doing

  • You’ll lead a team to offer excellent customer service in marketing and letting our homes across all tenures and products including Social Media, Rightmove, nominations and CBL schemes.
  • You’ll ensure we track our portfolio of rented products, offering the right tenancy on sign up and ensuring that customers are proactively contacted to discuss their housing options.
  • Also, you’ll continue to develop the Lettings service in collaboration with our internal teams and external partners. You’ll lead, engage and develop your people to become a high performing team. You’ll work to ensure the development of the Lettings service across all rented products – social, affordable and market – so that it continually improves.
  • You’ll monitor and review teams and individual performance against the required YH standards, setting clear expectations and feedback opportunities to create a culture of excellency.

The stuff that sets you apart

  • Educated to A-Level or equivalent experience
  • Experience of managing a lettings team in a social housing setting
  • Able to demonstrate ability to lead, develop and motivate a remote team.
  • Knowledge of relevant legislative and regulatory framework
  • Experience of successful relationships with internal and external partners
  • Ability to understand and interpret complex data  with comprehensive IT experience especially in MS products
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Ability to prioritise, manage your own workload and to meet deadlines
  • Full UK driving licence and access to a car for business purposes.

What’s in it for you

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

We also work (truly) flexibly, and believe work is something you do, not somewhere you go.

But that’s not all. We offer a reward package to suit everyone. At YH, you can claim back for prescriptions, eye tests and more with our cash plan, make the most of a variety of retail discounts and take advantage of our pension scheme where we’ll match your contributions up to 9%, just to name a few.

Our people’s health and wellbeing is our top priority, and at YH, you can make the most of our readily available wellbeing support package. This includes access to a library of fitness classes, as well as an instant My GP service and free counselling sessions with our employee assistance programme.

Sounds good? We’d love to hear from you.

At YH, we’re actively building a work environment that’s inclusive as well as diverse, where everyone can contribute their best work and be themselves. We believe difference is what makes us stronger and recognise the importance of our teams reflecting the communities we serve, so we welcome and encourage candidates from all backgrounds for this role.

The Finer Print

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

This is agile position and in line with our hub, home and roam strategy, you do need to be able to commute around Leeds and Yorkshire regularly for face to face collaboration and to meet business requirements.

Company

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.
