The role is to visit our client’s residents and deliver bespoke home heating advice, appliance knowledge, energy awareness and money-saving tips. Part of the visit will involve install water-saving products and give Water Smart Advice.

During your home visits you will also introduce residents onto an award-winning on-going advice & support programme offered by the ZapCarbon Care Team.
