The Green Doctor Trainee will work alongside experienced Green Doctors (community workers who specialise in providing energy advice) to help residents use energy efficiently, reduce bills, and to stay warm and well in their homes.
The role will include supporting customers by telephone, travelling extensively in the local area to deliver home energy visits, fitting small energy-saving measures (sometimes involving working at height), and taking part in promotional activities to spread the word about their service.
You will learn how to use equipment and tools, gather and record data accurately, and ultimately provide high-quality advice to help people who are most in need.
They are seeking an individual who is motivated to develop a career in the energy advice sector, and who is committed to supporting vulnerable people to act more sustainably, to stay warm and well in their homes, and to reduce their household bills.
The ideal candidate would be approachable, professional and motivated to learn. They’ll help you to gain the technical qualifications, skills, knowledge and experience needed, provided you commit to a structured programme of learning alongside other Trainees. The role will involve working in communities and supporting vulnerable people in their homes, so interpersonal skills and a commitment to working safely and responsibly will be critical. As part of a small team, communication and team-working skills will be essential, as well a willingness to travel to support customers within an agreed geographical area.
Closing date: Midnight on Friday 23rd February 2024
