Salary: £85,000 plus
We can’t help but feel we’ve clicked already, but you’ll want to find out more to see if you really want to ‘swipe right’, as they say.
If you’re looking for an Assets and Sustainability senior leadership role with a bit of a difference and feel ready to take on your next challenge, then maybe this role is what you’ve been looking for.
Here’s three things we think you should know:
• You’ll play a lead role in shaping and driving the future of Yorkshire Housing with loads of scope for new ideas, innovation and progress.
• You can work where, when and how you want with our hub, home, roam approach. No need to pick a job you can commute to over the one you really want.
• It’s a role with meaning, so you’ll be making a real difference to thousands of customers’ lives with what you do.
So, what’s this Director of Assets and Sustainability role all about then?
Our brand-new Director of Assets and Sustainability will deliver and evolve our asset delivery strategy and our assets investment programmes. We’re looking for a commercial leader with expertise in planning approaches for a diverse, regional asset base. Understanding around new and emerging technologies in this area is crucial. You’ll be a pioneer when it comes to sustainability as we aim to become a more sustainable organisation, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and be one of the first UK housing associations to stop using gas heating and hot water systems.
As part of the Senior Leadership team you’ll lead the Asset, Sustainability, Market Rent and Leasehold functions with exceptional stakeholder skills and inspirational leadership, taking forward our culture of innovation, flexibility and service excellence. You’ll deliver a new active asset management strategy that impacts the needs of our assets, also developing a long-term approach to decarbonisation. Supported by the Head of Market Rent and Leasehold you’ll be responsible for the commercial management of our market rent and leasehold portfolio.
You’ll already be a senior leader from a large organisation with commercial experience in this space alongside being an innovator in sustainability and carbon neutral strategies. So, if you’re looking to join a customer-focused, dynamic organisation that does something that matters, then maybe we’re made for each other...
And what about us?
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. We are transforming our business by investing in people, processes and technology to deliver a consistently great experience for our customers. This role is one of a group of new leadership opportunities that have been created to make this happen.
Pssst. One of our values is ‘Be Yourself’. We’re passionate about inclusion and we’d love to hear from people from diverse backgrounds for this role.
The finer print
You’ll probably want to know we offer a salary of £85,000 plus £3,500 car allowance, 28 days annual leave plus public holidays, a generous pension scheme and plenty of other benefits.
This is an agile / homeworking position, and you’ll be comfortable travelling to and within Yorkshire as required for the role.
