Gas Qualified Smart Meter Installer - Horsham

Job description

Smart Meter Installer (Gas Qualified)
£30,096 per year (once fully trained) plus up to £4,500 deferred loyalty bonus scheme 

A guaranteed loyalty bonus, realistic targets and a better work life balance. Add the chance to get Dual Fuel Qualified and it’s clear that we're the smart choice for Smart Meter Installers. 
This is one of the biggest jobs around. The UK has rarely seen an energy saving project as important or ambitious as the Smart Metering Programme. By 2020, we will install 7 million meters. As a member of our team of dedicated and skilled fitters, you’ll be at the heart of our success. It’s not just a big challenge - it’s a rewarding one too. As well as the reward of helping our customers to manage their energy usage, you’ll enjoy excellent benefits and development. 

What you’ll do as a Smart Meter Installer

Fitting Smart Meters in our customers’ homes, you’ll be the friendly face of SSE. Making visits in your well-equipped van, you’ll meet all kinds of people. You’ll have targets based on the number of appointments booked in and we’ll give you the time to complete every job safely and answer every customer’s questions properly.  We operate flexibly to meet customer demands, this may occasionally require you to work away from home as part of your role. With us, your customer service skills are just as important as your technical ability. And if you need any help yourself, our dedicated support team is just a call away. 

What you’ll need if you’re Gas Qualified

A current CMA1, CCN1, Diploma in Smart Installation (Gas or Dual Fuel) or an equivalent aligned ACS qualification.
A current MET1, 2 or 4 or FCO1 qualification.
Each certificate should be valid for at least 6 months from your start date.
A current driving licence with a maximum of 6 points.

Your reward

We give you the kit you need to succeed – van, tools and full PPE. What’s more, you’ll get a guaranteed loyalty bonus included as part of your contract.
And that’s not all. Our benefits package includes a generous holiday allowance, pension scheme, discounted energy, phone and broadband, and a share incentive scheme. You’ll also enjoy:
Discounted health assessments
Help and advice for a smooth pregnancy and beyond
Childcare vouchers
Discounts to gyms, health clubs and leisure centres
Vauxhall Partners Programme 
Opportunities for development in coaching and mentoring positions

About us

We provide the energy people need, reliably and sustainably. We distribute and supply electricity and gas, and provide other energy-related services. You’ll get all the training you need to do a great job, plus opportunities to develop and progress.
As a member of our talented and diverse workforce, you will benefit from our commitment to being a great place to work. At SSE we value the differences that a diverse workforce brings to the organisation, through the wide ranging knowledge and experience of individuals from all sectors of society. We actively recruit from all sectors of the community and seek to ensure wherever possible that the composition of its workforce reflects the diversity of the communities in which it operates.
