Key Responsibilities

As a Meter Reader you will be responsible for collecting data from gas and electricity meters, walking from property to property and providing excellent customer service on the way. You will use your own judgement to plan your route and decide when it is appropriate to call at certain properties, ensuring your own and customers’ safety at all times. You will be an ambassador for the company, representing leading energy suppliers, therefore a professional image and courteous attitude will be required. Due to the customer facing nature of the role, excellent communication and customer service skills are essential in your success, along with the drive and motivation to work in an independent role.

We do not look for any particular experience but do require:

  • A full UK driving licence
  • Use of a vehicle with business insurance to complete the role
  • Landline phone connection
  • Competency in numeracy and literacy

The successful candidate will be offered a permanent contract with a base salary of £15,796 + £2,653 Secondment Allowance for a period of 10 months. You will receive 20 days holiday + bank holidays each year, and the choice to join our company pension scheme after 12 months continuous service.

Secondment Opportunity
In conjunction with your meter reading duties, Morrison Data Services are currently making improvements to its Site Assurance and Revenue Protection side creating the role of Revenue Protection Officer (RPO). 
 
This being your primary role on a secondment basis, the additional skill set required to undertake this task, we are looking for individuals who are comfortable with dealing with conflict and can defuse difficult conversations as you would be expected to execute warrants to obtain entry into residential and commercial properties. Being observant with excellent attention to detail is also very important to this role.

In order to be successful, you must be able to pass our screening and vetting standards, 5 years employment history & DBS assessment.
