Work in the building industry and interested in retrofit projects?

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. It’s a scheme which is new to Oxfordshire, but which has been tried and tested by RetrofitWorks in other parts of the UK, such as Sussex and London.

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.

To fill this need, RetrofitWorks are holding Retrofit Coordinator training in Oxford on the 6th and 7th February 2020. If you work in the industry it’s a great chance to learn new skills and gain new work.

Interested? Please email to find out more about the training and to book your place.

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.

What experience do I need to have?

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.

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.

How is the course delivered?

The course is delivered via a two day ‘boot camp’ (to take place on 6 and 7 February 2020) 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.

Is there a cost for the training?

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.

How do I book on to the training?

Please contact Geordie on to find out more about the training and to book your place. Places are limited, so please book as soon as possible to secure your place.
