Green Skills – Retrofit Advisor Free Course

Part of

What you'll learn

Want a job with great progression opportunities focused on tackling the climate crisis?

A large part of tackling climate change centers around encouraging improvements to energy efficiency within existing buildings across the UK, promoting the installation of various sustainable technologies in a process called Retrofit.

Retrofit Advisors act as Junior Project Managers, delivering consultations over the phone and via email, providing customer support and advice to people and organisations going through (or considering) energy efficient improvements to their buildings.

You will play an instrumental role in driving things forward and managing the retrofit project behind the scenes. This includes booking installers and contractors, processing grant applications, reviewing surveys and progress, and conducting initial online property assessments.

Retrofit professionals are in growing demand across energy companies, specialist installers, housing associations and local councils. It’s estimated we’ll need 10,000 skilled retrofit professionals by 2025 alone! Once you start your career in retrofit you can progress quickly in work earning up to £30k in 2 years through various career routes in this growing sector.
