Derbyshire County Council Adult Care is looking for a highly motivated individual to be involved in the delivery of a ‘Healthy Housing’ affordable warmth programme. The programme will provide energy efficiency advice and improvements to the homes of Derbyshire residents (excluding Derby City), targeting people in fuel poverty and with long term health conditions made worse by living in cold damp homes.

Experience of involvement in domestic energy efficiency and affordable warmth projects will be valuable. Equally important will be the skill to deal sensitively with vulnerable householders in the home and a desire to improve their health and wellbeing. 

The post holder will be expected to work mostly around the middle and southern areas of Derbyshire.

The post holder will spend time making home visits, working with district council officers, Adult Care and other health and housing professionals. Home working will also be encouraged where appropriate. The successful candidate will need to use their own vehicle for business travel and will be able to claim expenses for mileage. Part time working will be considered.

For further information or general enquiries about this post please contact Bill Purvis (Programme Manager) on 07901 860094 or email bill.purvis@derbyshire.gov.uk
