Energy consultants can either be employed by companies or do freelance work on a consultancy basis. Their role is to work with customers and advise them on how to make best use of their gas and electricity supplies (or other “greener” fuels) to enable them to make savings and be more environmentally friendly. You will need excellent customer care skills and a scientific, mathematical brain, being able to analyse data and solve problems. Energy consultants often come from engineering backgrounds although this is not essential if you can demonstrate strong numerical and scientific skills.

Re- Energy Consultant
Dear Mr Manager
Please find attached my CV in response to your advertisement for the above position. I believe I am the perfect person for this role as I have spent several years as a boiler engineer and have excellent problem solving skills.
Highly numerical and analytical, I am able to identify ways clients can save money on their energy bills and live more environmentally friendly lives. I am committed to providing an excellent standard of customer service and enjoy meeting new people, finding it easy to explain technical information clearly and in a way everyone can understand. I am honest and reliable, keeping the customer’s needs at the heart of my work and being committed to providing an excellent standard of work.
I am a confident communicator at all levels- whether I am working with an elderly person in their home or a senior executive of a company. I have a full driving licence and am able to travel and work flexible hours if necessary.
I am committed to health and safety and work well under pressure, keeping to deadlines and to set schedules. I work well as a member of a team but am also competent at making decisions and using my initiative.
I look forward to hearing from you.
