The fine print  

The closing date for applications will be 02/04/2024, but we might close it early if we get lots of fab candidates, so don’t hang around. As this role is an apprenticeship, it’s a 24-month fixed contract, but once your fully qualified we’d work with you to secure you an opportunity with us at Yorkshire Housing as we know good talent when we see it! 

Please remember to complete your application is as much detail as possible, if your CV isn’t the most detailed, your application is your time to shine! 

We know not everyone excels at interviews which means we don’t always get the best out of people in a traditional interview. So, as you can probably tell we don’t do things the ‘typical’ way here at Yorkshire Housing so the next step of the process will involve a super exciting assessment centre approach where we get to see you face to face!
