SummaryWe want to build a team of local enthusiasts who can help us find suitable rooftops for solar & approach building owners about what we do & the benefits to them
What you do will partly depend on your interests, skills and training, but we hope that our local volunteers will at least take part in identifying initial sites (alone or as a small group) and approaching the potential site to discuss what we do and how it could benefit them. But don't worry, there will be no cold calling involved!
There’s also scope for local volunteers to become part of BSC’s team of technical volunteers, who use specialist software to help prepare initial and full PV installation proposals, and for those with legal training to dedicate their time to taking contracts forward. We would also love to have people on board who have communications / marketing skills.
We will provide training and mentoring to all volunteers, so full support will be given.
We’re looking for people who are:
· enthusiastic about helping to tackle climate change
· interested in solar power
· computer literate and able to work on-line
· keen to gain experience and learn new technical skills
· good at communicating
· reliable and well organised
· able to work as part of a team.
If this sounds like you, please get in touch. We'd love to have you onboard.
