Looking for three new Home Energy Advisors

Looking for three new Home Energy Advisors

Our Healthy Homes for Wellbeing project launched in Autumn 2017 is growing fast. Since November we have helped 400 households, and this coming autumn/winter season we expect to help a lot more.

This project aims to provide energy and financial support for the vulnerable and fuel poor in our community. We hold drop-in energy advice clinics in community centres, give talks to community groups, train frontline workers so they can spot when to make referrals to Healthy Homes and we provide the in depth LEAP home visit where a full energy assessment is completed to provide a tailor made package of support to help cut costs and help make homes warmer.

More info here. You can also read our recent article with first season results.

Our geographical coverage for the project has increased and as a result we need to train more Home Energy Advisors (HEA’s) in order to help as many local people as possible over the coming winter.  More than 11% of Devon households are in Fuel Poverty, that’s a lot of homes!

We’re looking for three new HEA’s who will work in a self-employed capacity, to each cover one of the following areas:
Exeter, East Devon and Teignbridge/Torbay

Do you know anybody who may be interested? The skills that are needed include:

  • IT literate and own laptop or ipad
  • Have own vehicle/access to vehicle for carrying out visits
  • Have previous experience of working with the public
  • Ideally HEAs will already be qualified to level 3 City & Guilds in Energy Awareness in the Home and/or be a qualified Domestic Energy Assessor. However full training will be provided, therefore a willingness to study and take a few exams would be required.

Our HEA’s play an important role in the overall aims and objectives of ECOE. They’ll be working as part of an innovative team,  directly helping to improve the lives of those living in our local community, as well as promoting a low-carbon life style.

If you or anyone you know would like to know more about these opportunities, please contact
