The Vacancy

About the role:

One of Paradigm’s key corporate objectives if to improve the energy efficiency of its homes. We have identified some of our worst energy efficient properties and we proposed to undertake measures to improve their performance to the benefit of our customers over the next 12 months. At the same time, we will be preparing plans to improve all homes with poor energy efficiency and high carbon emissions.

The first stage in delivering energy efficiency improvements to our homes is the successful engagement with our customers. The prospect of having these works carried out to their homes can be off putting. Without good engagement many customers will decline works. This despite the benefits to them once the works are completed in terms of improved comfort and affordability.

To address this risk to the delivery of the energy improvement projects we have identified the need for a Customer Engagement Manager, who will take a hands-on and strategic role to engage with the customers. Your first role will be to contact each customer whose home has been identified as having poor energy efficiency.  The aim is to establish a rapport and build up trust. You will explain the process Paradigm intends to follow to determine what energy efficiency measures are required, how we will consult with them on the proposed measures and then the installation process. At the same time, you will listen to their concerns and where practicable consider how they can be accommodated. You will also collect information about the customer’s lifestyle, their energy usage and comfort. This information is vital in building up an understanding of the customer and their needs and will also be used to measure the success of the project once works are completed. You will also offer some basic energy efficiency advice.

You will be their trusted Paradigm contact form the inception to the completion of the works.  This is a role where you can utilise your customer service and powers of persuasion skills and experience to get things done and communicate progress, while at the same time for those new to energy efficiency an opportunity to pick up some new skills in an area of national importance.  If you like working with people and want to make a difference to their quality of life, then this job is for you.

Our Team

We are a small newly established team which is part of the larger Asset Management Strategy Team.  You will work with the Asset Decarbonisation Manager and the Retrofit Project Manager together with consultants and contractors to deliver the energy efficiency improvement projects and establish long term customer focussed strategies for energy efficiency improvements and the decarbonisation of our homes.

  • You will have the ability to plan your work in a logical way, able to work well under pressure and to tight deadlines.
