Green Doctors are part of the Not-for-profit organisation Groundwork London and have been helping vulnerable people for over 16 years. We work with Local Authorities and Housing Associations to support those most in need. Your role will include delivering home visits and telephone support to advise people on how to save energy and money in the home, installing energy-saving measures and helping households apply for grants.

The Green Doctor Trainee will work alongside our experienced Green Doctors (Groundwork community workers with specialisms in providing energy advice) to help residents with their energy bills and well-being in their homes. This includes delivering telephone advice, assisting with home visits, fitting small energy-saving measures, and taking part in promotional activities to spread the word about our service.

We’ll help you to gain the technical qualifications, skills, knowledge and experience needed, provided you commit to a structured programme of learning alongside other Trainees. The role will involve working in communities and supporting vulnerable people in their homes, so interpersonal skills and a commitment to working safely and responsibly will be critical.

  • Employee Health Care Cash Plan
  • Ongoing training and development along with qualifications in energy saving and retrofitting
  • A Green Doctor van/car to travel to and from home visits
