  • Develop and maintain knowledge of PAS2035 (publicly available specification), MCS, Trustmark and other relevant standards / accreditation schemes.
  • Generate reports on supply chain activity based on customers interaction with the programme based on advice input and subsequent interactions/follow up with supply chain and provide insights for continuous improvement.

What you’ll bring 

  • Experience in a supply chain management role or a related field within domestic retrofit.
  • Knowledge of domestic energy efficiency, low and zero emissions heating, and renewable energy
  • Demonstrable experience of and ability to communicate with and engage people at all levels, including external stakeholders, businesses and customers.
  • Excellent customer-focused orientation and understanding of key factors affecting customer satisfaction in the delivery of services.
  • Ability to analyse and interpret data to make informed decisions.
