About the job

We are looking for an enthusiastic and highly motivated individual, with experience of providing advice and supporting vulnerable people, to join us as an Energy Adviser. The post has a particular focus on the provision of energy advice and benefits advice, with the aim of reducing the impact of fuel poverty and supporting vulnerable clients. If you are interested in energy issues affecting Shetland homes and you’d like to help people to live in affordable warmth, we’d like to hear from you. Specialist training in Energy Advice will be given.

You will have a base in the main CAB office in Lerwick and be part of a team of advisers working together to ensure we provide a high quality, holistic service. The bureau has a Blended Working Policy which means that staff can combine attendance at the CAB office with the ability to work remotely from home, provided arrangements meet the needs of the Service. This post will also require travel throughout Shetland to carry out home visits and attend community events.

This post is part funded by Energy Redress and is until the end of April 2023.
