Job Details

We have a superb new opportunity for a Project Manager to join Yorkshire Housing, taking full responsibility of the completion of medium and large scale projects across the business.    You’ll be joining at an exciting time as we look at improving the way we interact with our customers, how we run our business with lots of changes to the technology we use and how we work.  A vital role in this programme, you’ll ensure sound project management processes are in place to deliver projects within time, budget and agreed outcomes. 

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.  Whether that’s helping people get on the property ladder, supporting with money coaching or enabling our older customers to continue to live independently. And to do that, we need to recruit and keep the very best people. 

What you’ll be doing?  

  • Working with the Head of Change & Programme Delivery, PMO & Portfolio Manager, Programme Managers, and business sponsors, developing effective working relationships to understand business needs, developing the business case and ensuring successful delivery  
  • Developing realistic project plans with defined resources, work packages and deliverables 
  • Ensuring standards and appropriate techniques are followed to and document business requirements. Also, identifying and managing risks to the success of the project. 
  • Creating the business readiness plan, taking into account IT deployment, data migration, training, and communication. 
  • Managing the budget and resources allocated to the project, ensuring value for money.    
  • Producing reports as appropriate for portfolio governance, tracking project progress, problems and solutions ensuring quality reviews occur 
  • Providing advice and coaching/mentoring in project management activities and leadership to the cross-functional project team 
  • Contributing to and adhering to the agreed PMO approach and timetable, providing appropriate information to agreed targets of timeline and accuracy.  
  • Using recommended portfolio, programme and project control solutions for planning, scheduling, and tracking. 

Sounds good? Here’s what we need from you…   

The main things: 

You’ll have a recognised professional qualification and be a credible and confident communicator. You’ll have previously worked in an organisation with an aggressive change agenda but a developing project management culture.  In addition, you’ll have: 

  • Proven experience of successful delivery of medium and large-scale transformational projects, achieving the required business results 
  • Experience of applying various project management approaches across different types of projects.  
  • Evidence of delivery and understanding across a wide range of business, technical and financial projects and able to demonstrate tools and techniques 
  • Experience of building and leading teams including leading people who are inexperienced in project management, working with external providers and ensuring business ownership. 

It’d be a bonus if you also have:

  • Worked with diverse project teams, overcoming logistical barriers such as location etc. 
  • Recent experience in delivery of both Waterfall and Agile projects  
  • Experience of developing a project management culture 
  • Experience of delivering projects in the Housing sector. 
  • Full UK driving license and a vehicle for business purposes 

What’s in it for you? 

We offer a salary of £46,542 per annum per annum 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 Perkbox’ Wellness Hub as well as a My GP service and free counselling with Health Assured

The finer print 

This is a home-working position but in line with our hub, home and roam strategy, you do need to be able to commute to or around Yorkshire on occasions for face to face collaboration and to meet business requirements. 

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

Detailed requirements are included on the attached role profile. The closing date is Monday 31 January with interviews expected to take place the week after. Please note, we reserve the right to close the advert early should we receive large numbers of applications so please apply 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.
