Charity seeks Volunteers for Energy Advice

January 8, 2013

With fuel prices rising and the coldest months of the year looming, Shrewsbury based charity Marches Energy Agency (MEA) is looking for volunteers to help give advice to householders on energy efficiency, grants, fuel switching and collective switching, and the forthcoming “Green Deal”

MEA runs a number of affordable warmth helplines, runs a mobile exhibition service and has stands at public venues such as GP surgeries and schools.

Volunteers need to be confident and have a pleasant manner on the telephone or face to face, be able to accurately record names and addresses and collect other information, give advice and signpost people to other services, and have an interest in energy saving.

In return, MEA offers a pleasant working environment in our exemplary energy efficient offices overlooking the river Severn, full training and support in giving advice, and ongoing information about developments in the energy sector.

People volunteer for a number of reasons – out of interest for the subject, to give something back to their local community, to increase their own skills and gain experience. A number of volunteers do go on to find paid work in a similar field.

Whatever your reason, if you are interested in finding out more, contact Tim Baldwin on 01743 277123 or email tim@mea.org.uk

Marches Energy Agency is a certified social enterprise, with the Social Enterprise Mark.
