As an Affordable Warmth Advisor, you’ll provide people with crucial support to get through the growing energy crisis. Our Community Engagement and Energy Advice Services are on the frontline, providing a range of information and support to the public including signposting, advice, advocacy and support for people, particularly for those in fuel poverty, and awareness-raising and engagement activity at talks and events.

We are seeking to recruit additional Affordable Warmth Advisors to help us expand our services across Scotland, to support more people in need and to drive energy efficiency. Our Advisors are naturally supportive, highly motivated and driven by delivering real outcomes for their customers. If you have excellent communication skills, a ‘can do’ attitude and a mature and responsible approach to your work, we’d love to hear from you. The work can be complex, and our customers are often in acute need, meaning the role can be highly rewarding as you can make a real difference to someone’s life.

A background in energy or advice is desirable, customer experience essential, and you should have an understanding of vulnerability and awareness of fuel poverty You should have experience of producing high quality written reports or papers. A driving licence is beneficial as some of our work is face-to-face, and in rural areas.

We will start to grow your knowledge of services straight away with training over your first months. Training and knowledge sharing will be ongoing to ensure you are kept up to date with sector specific developments and new technologies.

We offer an attractive staff benefits package, excellent pension and employee benefits which include 26 days paid holiday plus 9 public holidays per year.
