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.

You’ll also work closely with the compliance team in ensuring work is undertaken safely & ensuring best safety practice is adhered to at all times.

The stuff that sets you apart?

This role would suit someone with previous experience in servicing, installing & undertaking gas boilers and appliances in a domestic environment at high volume. You’ll be able to deal with different priorities and to tight deadlines, while maintaining high standards of work.

You’ll also hold current ACS Certificates CCN1,CENWAT, HTR1 & CKR1 or equivalent and have full UK Driving License.

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.

In return we offer £34,630 for a 37.5 hour week with the opportunity for overtime when required, 25 days annual leave (raising annually to 30 days) plus Bank Holidays. There will also be additional callout payments in addition to the annual salary.

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

In this role you will cover our South region but you may also be expected to travel also across the entire Yorkshire region.

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.
