Job Opportunity: Energy Advisor (Female)

Energy Advisor (Female) – 25 hours per week, Monday to Friday 9.30am – 2.30pm, plus occasional Saturday and evening work; permanent after completion of probationary period; salary in the range of £23,480 to £24,480 + 6% contribution to pension scheme (pro rata).

Greener Kirkcaldy is a community-led charity, working on a local scale to benefit people and our environment. We are concerned about climate change, social justice and community development.  We would like to see a future where everyone is able to heat their home affordably, eat well, and tread more lightly on our planet.

We lead the ‘Cosy Kingdom’ partnership of organisations who deliver energy and fuel poverty advice services for householders across Fife – including community engagement on energy efficiency and micro-renewables, and advice on tariffs and switching. The service helps people stay warm while spending a lower proportion of their income on fuel, and develops skills and confidence for participants to take more control of their energy use and bills.

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced female energy advisor to join our team. Our team of Energy Advisors deliver energy advice work in Mid and West Fife, making home energy advice visits, delivering talks and workshops on saving energy, and attending events to raise the profile of the service. We are looking to appoint a female candidate based on exemption under the Equality Act 2010, Schedule 9 – Occupational Requirements. The successful candidate will work with a wide range of people including some vulnerable women whose circumstances require us to provide a female advisor.

You will have excellent communication skills, an ability to communicate with a broad range of people, and a genuine desire to tackle fuel poverty and help our community go greener. You will be motivated, have excellent organisational skills, work well on your own initiative and as part of a team, and be flexible to adapt to the needs of the project.
