We're looking for an exceptional Energy Advisor to join our Community Investment team to help us deliver our Energy Advice service to our residents.
You will travel around the regional housing stock to provide one to one and group advice to residents in need of energy saving advice. This will include helping residents to understand their heating systems, advise on fuel efficiently and inform residents about bill paying options. You will assess the insulation and energy upgrade needs of customers' homes, and either provide energy saving advice to customers or refer them to the appropriate specialist support service, such as financial guidance, employment support, and digital skills training, or property teams.
We'll look to you to deliver an excellent, consistent and responsive customer focused service, working closely with colleagues to embed energy advice across Community Investment and Clarion Housing. You'll also be required to share energy advice best practice through regional networks and develop relationships with other housing associations and potential partners.
Your initial priorities will include:
- Gaining an understanding of the Energy Advice service and its fit with the wider Guidance Team programme, the Financial Inclusion programme and the Digital Inclusion programme
- Undertaking appropriate training and professional boundaries training
- Working with the other Energy Advisors and Guidance team colleagues to establish a strong, supportive and dynamic team ethic
- Gaining a sound understanding of the wider Community Investment service and its activities, recognising and identifying opportunities for joint working, pro-active referrals and the creation of a holistic service across all specialisms.
You'll already have experience of delivering high quality, face to face guidance services, gained in an energy (or similar emotive) context and will ideally hold the City & Guilds Level 3 Award in Energy Awareness.
You'll role model team working skills, be an excellent communicator, display personal integrity and credibility, and be willing to collaborate with both colleagues and external partners.
A passion and drive to successfully deliver high quality energy guidance to enable residents to make positive, sustainable changes to their circumstances will be critical for your success in this role
Applicants must be able to regularly travel within the area.
