Warrington’s energy company launches recruitment campaign


TOGETHER Energy – the Scottish energy company in which Warrington has an £18 million stake – has launched a recruitment campaign in the borough.
It is to open an office in the town and is looking to recruit at least 20 new members of staff.
The company operates a unique recruitment policy favouring young people who have been disadvantaged in some way or did not have a positive experience at school.
Council chiefs agreed last October to invest £18 million in Together Energy, taking a 50 per cent stage in the company.
Paul Richards, the company’s chief executive, said, “Together Energy was founded in an employment deprived area with a significant reliance on low-wage, zero hour contracts  and state benefits and our ethos from day one has been to create local community jobs of worth that recognise and support young disadvantaged people.
“We want to replicate that in Warrington and create opportunities for personal growth.  Investment in training and learning is also a big part of our business and no matter the stage of a person’s career we provide learning support whether that be participation in a modern apprenticeship or a university access course. But it’s not just about academic learning as we recognise that’s not for everyone.  We offer support and advice on a variety of lifestyle issues.
“We’re looking at opening a new office in the town in the spring and are hoping to have staff in place within six weeks.   No experience is required as training is provided but a desire to make a change and learn is.”
All Together Energy employees receive the minimum living wage for over 25 year olds, regardless of their age, which is significantly higher than the average industry rate.
Council leader Russ Bowden said: “Offering local young people who might not find employment easily in the job market was one of the reasons for our investment.  We are delighted that the new Warrington office will provide this opportunity.”

Headquartered in Clydebank, Together Energy offers low priced dual energy tariffs for up to a three year fixed term.  It operates an £85m turnover, with over 140 employees serving more than 150,000 customer accounts.
