Employer of the week
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 a Governance, Risk and Assurance 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 Governance, Risk and Assurance all about then?
Our new Director of Governance, Risk and Assurance will have strategic responsibility for making sure we meet our statutory and regulatory compliance requirements. You’ll lead the way in developing and shaping the frameworks, ways of working and policies that keep our business, colleagues and customers safe and help us achieve our ambitions.
We’re looking for a real enabler, someone who understands what the business is trying to achieve and has a practical and pragmatic approach to balancing risk with progress and innovation.
You’ll have a few different hats - providing assurance and oversight to the Executive and Board as well as offering constructive challenge and solutions and helping the Executive team to make the right decisions. You’ll lead, develop and support the governance, risk, health and safety compliance and assurance teams, building knowledge and capability within your directorate and across the business. Naturally you’ll be someone with exceptional stakeholder skills, specialist knowledge in your field and an inspirational leader who can take forward our culture of innovation, flexibility and service excellence.
You’ll be an established senior governance and risk leader, having advanced your career in social housing or a comparable regulated business, perhaps with an itch to find a new challenge in an organisation with big ambitions, doing something that matters. If that sounds like you, 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 role 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.
First stage interview dates are expected to be w/c 5th July via MS Teams. If we click, second stage interviews are expected to be in person in the Leeds area the following week.
