Our vision at Yorkshire Housing is that everyone should have the opportunity to live in a quality home they can afford, and we currently own and manage 18,000 affordable and social rent homes, with a plan to develop 8,000 more over the next 10 years. We’re already making a huge difference to the lives of our customers and want to do even more by revolutionising the way we work - to go from being a good business to a great one. Proud to be more than just a landlord, we are transforming our business by investing in people, processes and technology to deliver a consistently great experience for our customers and be an organisation people want to work with and for.
Our success is dependent on our people and we are now looking to appoint four new Board Members, one of whom will also be the Chair of our YH Residential Board. You may already be a current non-executive with significant strategic leadership experience, although we’re also very keen to hear from aspirant Board Members who want to join an ambitious and customer focused organisation such as ours. Either way, we look for people who are curious, think differently, have impact and above all people who can make things happen.
Although financial literacy is essential for all our Board Members, for one of the new opportunities we are specifically looking for candidates with broad financial expertise, especially funding, treasury or refinancing experience to ensure we deliver our growth targets. Whether your financial career has been within a commercial environment, social housing or the wider public sector, your knowledge will be of considerable value as we are in the early stages of assessing our refinancing options. We are determined to explore the full spectrum of avenues open to us, not simply relying on traditional methods of social housing funding and refinancing.
For the three other Board Member roles, we are looking for expertise in digital transformation in a fast-paced customer environment, as well as innovative and strategic social housing experience. For the Chair of YH Residential Board we need commercial property development or sales / investment skills. Yorkshire Housing is proactively working to implement its Equality and Diversity Policy. We positively welcome and support diversity in our workforce and welcome applications from all sections of the community.

The closing date for applications is 9:00am on Monday 5th October 2020.
