Job Introduction

Ey up! Are you a Labourer looking for a new role in Yorkshire, working for an organisation that makes a real difference in peoples’ lives? Well, you’re in the right place. 

Below you’ll find the basics of what we’re after and what we can offer you, it’s a very exciting time to be joining us here at Yorkshire Housing so have a read and see if it floats your boat.


How much? 

The salary is for a 37.5-hour week £10.90 per hour that’s £21,255 per annum.


What’s in it for me?

You’ll get 25 days paid annual leave (rising annually to 30) plus Bank Holidays.

A fantastic pension scheme, and we will match your contribution up to 9%.  

You’ll get a van & fuel card (which you don’t need to leave at a depot) but you can only use it for work! So, you’ll need a driving license. 

You can also claim back for medical appointments, prescriptions and more through our colleague cash plan, and access thousands of retail discounts with Perkbox.  



You’ll work a 37.5-hour week (that’s 7.5 hour days), between 8am and 8pm but we can be flexible with this. 

We do have to look after our customers 24/7, so there is an opportunity to cover a call out service, but don’t worry, there are lots of willing folk helping out, so the rota is flexible and given in advance notice so you can plan around this if you’re interested in putting your name on the list. (you’ll get paid if you attend a call out too!)



Your primary location will be across York & Malton, but you may need to travel across the whole of Yorkshire as required.  


With who? 

You’ll work with an experienced, dynamic and friendly team across the region, and receive training from our experts to ensure you meet our quality guidelines. Opportunities to upskill yourself with various qualifications and move up the ladder too.


Who are we looking for ? 

We’re looking for skilled labourers and ideally, we are looking for people who can hit the ground running, so you’ll have worked in similar repairs and maintenance roles, great if they have been within social housing, but certainly not a deal breaker! We really just want the skills you can bring to our teams. 

You’ll enjoy interacting with our customers and providing a great service. 

It’s really important to us that our workforce reflect the diverse communities we serve and are committed to building an inclusive workplace, we welcome applications from all parts of the community. 


The finer print 

Closing date for applications will be the 13th March 2024, so don’t wait around! 

You must hold a full UK driving license for this role, and a basic DBS check will be required if successful. If you’re applying for this role internally, you must contact your line manager first.

If you’re interested in this role and but want to know more, please email us at and we will help you out.


And what about us? 

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 make it possible for current and future customers to have a place they’re proud to call home.  

We are currently going through an exciting period of expansion, and we can guarantee you work in the Yorkshire area, where you can really make a difference to people’s lives and have job stability.
