|Groundwork is a national charity that works with communities across the UK supporting them to create better places, live and work in a greener, more sustainable way and to improve their economic prospects.
The next five years will present huge challenges for society. As the economy recovers, continued reductions in public spending mean there is a risk of greater social inequality and greater geographic disparity. With the development of a new strategy: Groundwork 2020, our ambition is to build our visibility, our reputation and our resource base so that we can be a significant, radical, national force for driving change in attitudes, behaviours, places and prospects in the local communities that need it most.
About the role:
Green Doctors deliver home energy efficiency, health and wellbeing visits across London to vulnerable households. The visits are a holistic approach to caring for our clients’ needs and are a mix of advice, installation of small practical measures such as low energy light bulbs, draft proofing and referring on to other services in order to maximise the benefits for clients. We aim to reduce our clients’ energy bills and save them money in a variety of ways, including providing a bill switching service.
You will be a practical people person with a passion for the environment and for helping vulnerable people. You must have a thorough knowledge of energy efficiency to provide the in-home tailored energy saving advice, and the ability to adapt your approach to suit our clients’ varying needs.
