- You’ve never been exposed to more than one aspect of Finance work
- You haven’t experienced the demands of large volumes of transactions
- You’re easily frustrated with a developing business infrastructure
Simon Holden, Business Analyst
SIMON STARTED HIS YHG CAREER IN 2013 AS A FINANCE ASSISTANT IN THE RENT PROCESSING TEAM AND HAS SINCE BEEN PROMOTED TWICE BEFORE LANDING HIS CURRENT ROLE AS A BUSINESS ANALYST.
“Since starting in a temporary position, I have managed to climb up two tiers by building on the experience I have been given at Your Housing Group.
"I’ve also been well supported, both financially and with time to allow me to pursue Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) qualifications.
“The support that I have been given during my time here has built loyalty, and I feel valued, both as an employee and member of the team. YHG invested in me to help me reach my potential – they’re really keen to support people and to help them progress, constantly looking to the future.”
Steven Ireland, Finance Business Partner
Steven has held a number of finance posts at YHG and has benefitted from having the opportunity to experience different aspects of the department.
“If you are willing to put the hard work in, the benefits are there. From the Group Director down, there’s always a lot of recognition that the work you put in is valued.
“Other companies can sometimes make you feel pigeon-holed and discount your previous experience but that’s not the case at YHG. My previous experience was seen as helpful and so I was able to progress. There’s also great benefits and opportunities!”
