Energy Management Project Manager Alex Barker joined Tritility in early 2020, just after purchasing his first home. Then COVID-19 hit, and like many, Alex was uncertain about the future.
Here's his story.
Whether you're an experienced energy professional or are just starting your career within the industry, we're a genuine alternative to the large consultancies based in the North East.
Tritility was formed in 2019 and celebrated its first birthday in January 2020. We've accomplished some pretty amazing things in our first year of business.
We've grown to over 70 employees during our first 18 months in business and have ambitious growth plans for 2020 and beyond.
This is the figure we're most proud of! We've helped over 1,500 businesses compare, switch and save on their energy costs.
Listen to Claire and why she enjoys working with us.
Some of the reasons we're different from other consultancies include:
We pride ourselves on the simplicity of our commission structure. It's simple and easy to understand. It's also uncapped and paid from the very first £1 of revenue generated.
We finish at 3:00pm every Friday. The weekend starts early every week!
We gift additional paid time off to all staff over the Christmas and New Year period.
We cover up to £600 per year for Dental & Optical costs, including check ups, treatment, glasses, sunglasses and contact lens.
Additional holiday allowance and automated salary increase after each year of service.
Fully funded private health insurance with leading provider AXA PPP, including same day video-call GP access.
Confidential telephone helpline provided by AXA, providing information, support and counselling. Available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
We're out of the City Centre and so avoid the rush hour traffic. There's plenty of free parking and we're also served well by public transport.
We work with you to understand your career goals and we fully fund training and development courses to help you get there.
Great people know great people! That's why we pay up to £1,250 to employees who refer someone who joins us.
From nights out at the local pub to fully expensed corporate events, there's always something going on worth getting dressed up for!
Full time, part time, flexi-time, working from home - we can be as flexible as you are.
We offer free JD gym membership to be used in either their Newcastle, Washington or Sunderland gyms.
We have a range of office incentives with fantastic prizes to win. These are available to all roles within the business.
We care about our employee's health and wellbeing. We are currently working towards our Bronze award in the Better Health at Work Award Sunderland.
If you would like to learn more about what it's like to work for us, give us a call on 0191 367 5040, either for an informal and confidential chat or to arrange to come and visit us and see for yourself why we're such a great place to work.
In the North East, nearly a quarter of all jobs (23%) are paying less than the real Living Wage.
We're an accredited living wage employer, meaning we've committed to paying the Living Wage, ensuring that our employers receive a fair pay for a hard day's work. Our commitment to this ensure that employees receive a minimum hourly wage of £9.30 or £10.75 in London.
Beyond this, we have also banned exploitative employment practices such as zero hour contracts or commission only positions.
We've signed up to the Department for Work and Pension's Disability Confident programme to help fulfil our pledge to put people first and ensure we do not miss out by excluding disabled talent.
We've also signed up to the NHS accredited 'Mindful Employer' scheme for employers who are positive about mental health. Several colleagues have recently completed their Mental Health First Aid course training to help us support the 1 in 4 people on average who will suffer from a mental health problem every year.
