Could you be a Retrofit Coordinator?

Do you have a background in the building industry? If so, would you like to train and become a Retrofit Coordinator?

Cosy Homes Oxfordshire is a partnership project being delivered by Low Carbon Hub, RetrofitWorks and the National Energy Foundation to help homeowners improve the energy efficiency of their homes. You can read more about the project here.

As it grows the project is seeking to recruit more Retrofit Coordinators to support homeowners on their retrofit journey – from small jobs such as insulation to full-scale domestic retrofits. This is a vital role within the project as we look to provide excellent customer service to the growing number of homeowners keen to start home improvement work.

Sign up for the subsidised training course and join the Cosy Homes team.

What’s involved in being a Retrofit Coordinator?
As a Retrofit Coordinator for Cosy Homes Oxfordshire you will be producing Whole House Plans and advising our customers on planning energy efficiency measures for their homes.

You will be reviewing quotes for the measures from our trusted team of installers and overseeing the quality of the work as it is installed. You will be the first point of contact for our customers throughout the installation and will be monitoring and evaluating the installation once complete.

You will need to have several years’ experience in the building industry, including issuing contracts and tenders and you must have excellent customer service skills. This is an excellent opportunity to become involved in a growing new project to minimise the carbon footprint of homes across Oxfordshire.

How is the course delivered?
The course is delivered via a two day ‘boot camp’ (to take place on 2 and 3 December) and online learning.

There are 12 online assessments to complete. We are asking candidates to complete it in 4 months which means you will need to commit to approximately 6 hours a week study time. Once qualified we need people to be available for at least 2 days a week to work for us.

Entry requirements
If you have a minimum level 3 qualification in a built environment discipline, work experience in the building industry, plus excellent customer service skills with experience at issuing contracts and tenders, we'd love to hear from you.

The cost of the training is valued at £1440. However, Cosy Homes Oxfordshire are only asking for payment of half the cost of the course (£720). This will also be refunded once you have completed some work for the project.

When and where
The training will take place in Oxford (venue TBD) on 2 and 3 December 2019.
