Job Opportunity: Energy Advisor (Outreach)

Greener Kirkcaldy is a community-led charity working locally to bring people together, take positive action on the climate emergency and support people experiencing fuel poverty and food insecurity. We believe in a future where everyone has a say in what happens locally, people are working together to protect our environment and those in hardship are supported to live well.

Our work is diverse. Our team of 40 staff and 150 volunteers deliver programmes of action on climate change, fuel poverty and food insecurity. We work in Kirkcaldy and across the region of Fife, often in partnership with other charities, community groups and public-sector organisations.

We lead the Cosy Kingdom partnership, a free and impartial energy advice service available to all tenants and homeowners across Fife. Our Energy Advisors help people save energy, stay warm while spending less on fuel and develop skills and confidence to take more control of their energy use and bills. Our work plays a vital role supporting people in, or at risk of, fuel poverty and makes an important contribution to tackling carbon emissions and climate change.

We are looking for an Energy Advisor (Outreach) to lead a new element of our work – building capacity amongst groups and organisations across Fife to support households in fuel poverty.

The Energy Advisor (Outreach) will provide training to frontline workers, giving them the knowledge and skills to identify households in, or at risk of, fuel poverty, give basic advice and refer for further support. They will also coordinate and deliver a programme of events, talks and workshops, lead a small team of volunteer Energy Champions and support our core work by providing energy advice through home visits, telephone appointments, in our building and at community events.

We’re looking for an excellent communicator with a genuine desire to tackle fuel poverty and to help our community go greener. Full training will be provided, including City & Guilds Energy Advice.

Hours of work: full time (35 hours per week). We would consider requests to work fewer hours.
