We are looking for someone to support our Energy Saving Service with providing advice to residents who need help finding a cheaper energy tariff.
70% of energy customers are on an expensive Standard Tariff which is typically £300 more expensive than the cheapest tariffs available.
This role involves completing an online energy tariff comparison using an accredited website such as Uswitch to identify a more affordable tariff. You will pass on your recommendations to a BHESCo energy advisor who will contact the customer to help them switch.
We will provide training in how to read and understand an energy bill, how to identify the cheapest tariffs to switch to, and things to consider when supporting low-income and vulnerable energy customers.
“Being a part of BHESCo and the broader community-energy movement is a radical act, the full impact of which we have yet to fully comprehend.”
“Small cooperatives with genuinely innovative solutions and business structures have the potential to alter energy consumption on a wide scale. BHESCo provides an inspirational service to the local community and simultaneously benefits the planet as a whole. Although my volunteering plays a tiny part, it is fantastic to be involved in this enthusiastic and dedicated team who are achieving groundbreaking work.”
“Working with BHESCo during my summer vacation was the best volunteer experience so far. I can learn environmental justice, policy and management at UC Berkeley, but the best way to understand the actual process of reducing local greenhouse gas was to work for BHESCo. Surrounded by passionate and hard-working BHESCo members truly inspired me and made me think about what I’m going to do in the future to preserve Earth’s natural resources.”
“ I definitely have you all to thank for providing me such a rich and interesting learning experience to feed into it.”
Please tell us why you want to become a volunteer, what it is that you would be interested in doing and what skills you can bring and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
