Job Opportunity: Handy Service


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, delivering home energy and fuel poverty advice to tenants and homeowners across Fife. 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. Our team of Energy Advisors deliver energy advice work in south, west and central Fife, making home energy advice visits, delivering talks and workshops on saving energy, and attending events to raise the profile of the service. We also deliver a handy service, fitting energy saving measures in peoples’ homes to increase energy efficiency.

We are now looking for an experienced Handyperson, on a 6-month fixed term basis from 1st October 2017, to make home visits to households in, or at risk of, fuel poverty, in order to carry out simple energy-efficiency measures. These measures include putting up curtain poles and thermal curtains, installing radiator panels, draught-proofing, and fit LED light bulbs as appropriate.
