Community Outreach Officer x2

Severn Wye Energy Agency

£21,000 pa

Paid • Full Time • Fixed Term Contract

Sectors: carbon, climate & energy

Closing date: Friday, 20th December 2019   4 days left

Severn Wye are looking for 2 driven, enthusiastic Community Outreach Officers to work with households and communities to relieve fuel poverty and champion energy efficiency across the North of Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire. 

The Gloucestershire role represents a partnership between Severn Wye, Caring for Communities and People (CCP) and the NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), and will be based at CCP's Cheltenham drop-in centre. The South Gloucestershire position is a partnership with Sirona Care and Health based in Kingswood, Bristol.

Both roles are focussed on supporting and educating vulnerable households to help lift them out of fuel poverty. As Energy Advocate you will support consumers through the process of securing a better energy deal, managing and reducing debt, accessing funding and engaging with smart technology. This will ensure that our vulnerable citizens are much more engaged in their energy use and make good decisions in relation to how to use and manage it ­— ultimately putting money back in their pockets and improving their health and wellbeing. This is a hugely rewarding role, working with people overwhelmed by the world of energy to help them find clarity.

This post requires a satisfactory DBS check and appropriate references, but if this is the sort of work you see yourself thriving in, we’d love to hear from you.
