Make a difference with The Retrofit Academy!

WORKING WITH US

Our mission is to drive the development of 200,000 competent retrofitters by 2030. It’s an ambitious target and we can only achieve it with the right people. People like you.

We’re passionate about making a difference. We’re also passionate about our people. Our continued success is built on attracting talented individuals, helping them perform and develop, and making sure they thrive at work.

Career progression in a supportive, dynamic organisation making a real difference to climate change and people’s lives. That’s not something you get everywhere!

We hope you’ll see that a career with The Retrofit Academy gives you much more than a pay cheque!

Our Values

By joining us, you will be part of a values-driven organisation leading the way in the development of retrofit skills.

You will belong to an organisation that believes in quality retrofit and its ability to change lives.

You will make a valuable contribution to achieving the UK’s net zero targets and will be helping to manage climate change.

Everything we do is guided by four core values:

Positive

We see opportunities where others see barriers

Ethical

We always try to do the right thing

Empowering

We believe in the capacity of people to grow

Practical

We develop solutions that work in real life

We are A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

We are proud to be a certified Great Place To Work!

Certified by Great Place To Work, the global authority on workplace culture, in recognition of being an organisation that creates an outstanding employee experience.

We are AN Accredited Living Wage Employer

We are proud to be an accredited Living Wage Employer having been certified by the Living Wage Foundation.

We are committed to paying all our staff a real living wage and work with our direct suppliers to ensure they do the same.

WHAT WE OFFER

We believe a great job should offer more than just a salary. In addition to competitive pay, we offer a growing range of other financial and non-financial benefits when you work for us:

  • 25 days of annual leave + statutory bank holidays
  • A day off for your birthday (or another important day)
  • Annual Leave Purchase Scheme
  • Company pension
  • Private medical insurance
  • Enhanced maternity and paternity pay
  • Enhanced sick pay
  • Eyecare vouchers

As well as these financial benefits, we offer a discretionary bonus based on the achievement of our company values (our “Culture Dividend”) along with a range of smaller, manager-led rewards.

In addition to regular corporate training, we offer tailored professional development through regular 1-2-1s, performance conversations, and bespoke development plans for all our employees.

We know that life can be stressful and complicated. We firmly believe in supporting our people to thrive and aim to provide the tools needed to achieve this. We offer resilience and mindfulness training, along with health and wellbeing support.

We believe in the power of working regularly in the same space, but we also know that sometimes we all need a little peace and quiet, and that flexibility is important. We offer hybrid working arrangements and flexible working to cater for people’s individual needs.

We hold regular team away days and social and charitable events, and have introduced a corporate volunteering scheme.

We have a comfortable and relaxed working environment with a chillout room complete with table tennis and pool, and order the occasional takeaway for lunch!

We’re Always on the Lookout for Talent

Come and work for us! We’re a small but rapidly growing company and we’re always keeping an eye out for passion and talent.

Unless you want to be one of our tutors, you won’t need a background in training or retrofit to work for us. We have regular openings in business development, marketing, customer service, operations and project management – critical roles needed to deliver our mission.

If you think you have something special to offer, we’d love to hear from you!
