We have an exciting new temporary post within Linstone Housing Association as we seek to expand our support to householders within our communities. We have secured funding from the Energy Redress Scheme to provide an energy advice service to tenants and factored owners of Linstone Housing Association. The service will educate people about their household energy consumption and support them to make behaviour and physical changes to reduce their carbon footprint in the home. This will be achieved by developing householder skills and confidence to take more control of their energy use and bills, provide advice on tariffs and fuel switching and encourage installation of fuel saving measures.

The post holder will lead the development and growth of this new service and will be responsible for driving the promotion and delivery of energy advice leading to behavioural change, installation of measures and a reduction in fuel bills.

Linstone is a community led registered social landlord, based in Linwood, Renfrewshire. Our vision is to be a successful, thriving, and sustainable housing association. Our priority is to provide excellent homes and services for our tenants and to make a positive difference in our communities. We are a charity that owns and manages approximately 1,600 properties, providing affordable rented and supported housing as well as providing factoring services to a further 2,000 owner occupiers across Linwood, Johnstone and Paisley.
