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.

Our service doesn’t stop once the keys are in the door, and as an Electrician, you’ll play a key role in making sure our tenants feel safe, valued and proud to live in a YH home from day one. It’s a role that you can go home from knowing you’ve made a difference, with customers always at the heart!


What you’ll be doing

You’ll undertake electrical repairs & alterations to existing fittings and fixtures, rewiring partial or full properties, including inspection, testing and the provision of certification and reporting on the condition of electrical components and equipment.

You’ll be using your own personal initiative, problem-solving any smaller issues on-site, but also be working as a key player in a bigger team. Also, you’ll work closely with other trades, as well as administrators and suppliers.

You’ll be the face of Yorkshire Housing to many of our tenants. So, respectful, warm and professional communication is a key part of this role.


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

If you’re passionate about creating trust with our customers and doing the right thing, not the easy thing, then this role sounds perfect for you. We’re a future-focused, innovative housing provider with big plans for growth and developing our customer offer. Want to come along for the ride?

We’re also looking for someone with the right experience and qualifications. You’ll have City & Guilds Level 3 (or recognised equivalent qualification), City & Guilds 2382 (18th edition), NVQ in Electro technical Services & AM2 Certification. 2391 inspection and testing is desirable, but if you don't have it we'll put you through it. 

You'll also have a valid UK driving licence. This is a mobile role, so you'll need to be able to travel around Yorkshire however, we'll try to allocate customers based around your current location.  Please see the attached role profile for more info.


So, now you’re really interested?

At YH, we’re building a work environment that’s inclusive as well as diverse, where everyone can be themselves. Difference is what makes us stronger, so we welcome and encourage candidates from all backgrounds.
