Nicola O'Toole, ICT Service Desk Manager
Nicola O’ Toole originally joined the organisation in 2007 as an IT helpdesk assistant, and during her time with YHG, has steadily progressed up the tiers into a managerial role.
“No matter what role you’re in, if you’re willing to work hard, YHG are really supportive with career development and progression within the organisation. I’ve been supported with funding to undertake specialist IT courses and most recently, ILM management qualifications to help with my current role.
“A friendly, positive atmosphere is reflected right throughout the organisation, from management through to frontline officers. Everyone supports each other with a ‘can do’ attitude because, ultimately, whatever role you do, the end goal is the same – to change people’s lives for the better.”
Fayzal Balu, ICT Applications Specialist
Fayzal has now been with Your Housing Group for five years, and during this time has progressed from a junior role to a more senior position as an Applications Specialist.
"It’s an exciting place to work because things are constantly evolving here, creating a fast moving environment. As the business has grown, so has the variation and scope of work. YHG are really keen in new technologies and have been really supportive in helping me grow my knowledge with the business.
"The environment here at 602 is also really inspiring – a modern workplace with open-plan offices and a flexible working approach. The people are really supportive and open to ideas, allowing you to be creative and think outside the box, and make you feel that you are genuinely making a difference."
