Warmstart is our unique employment initiative that aims to create, support and facilitate work placements, apprenticeships, jobs and mentoring opportunities in the energy efficiency and renewable energy industry. The initiative goes across both our own business and those of our supply chain partners.
Click on each of the type of Warmstart opportunities below to find out how many individuals we have placed, as well as some further detail on what to expect.
Warmstart is about honing and harnessing the talent that will drive and enhance the green jobs of the future; developing the people and skills that will be needed as we decarbonise our homes and transition to a net zero nation.
Working together with our supply chain partners, we want to build, grow and sustain a workforce that can rely on the progression of key skills and on meaningful, long-term personal and professional development.
In its first year, the initiative managed to place 24 young people into a variety of opportunities. We have seen a 90% retention rate, with positive long-term outcomes achieved, including a range of permanent jobs and apprenticeships across the industry.
Whilst the first phase of the initiative focused on providing young people aged 16-24 with opportunities in the energy efficiency sector, we are now building on this by also targeting those aged over 25 who are looking to ‘restart’ their career.
You can hear directly from some of those young people and candidates in the case studies below.
