A bit about the role

Do you like working in an active outdoor role? Do you want to take control of your schedule and work flexibly? If the answer is yes then this could be the role for you.

As a Meter Reader you will be responsible for collecting data from gas and electricity meters in both commercial and residential properties. You’ll update meter reads accurately throughout the day on your handheld device. You’ll be an ambassador for the company, representing many of the UK’s leading energy suppliers. As a member of the MDS family you’ll play a key role within our business and represent our brand. We have a reputation for hard work, great results, and for being a great place to work.

What does an average day look like?

Initially you join our training environment before moving out into the field.  Start your day by signing into your handheld device so you’re ready for the day ahead. Your day will begin with you planning your route. Meters can be inside or outside properties so you’ll need to decide what time you’re more likely to gain access to an inside meter. You’ll spend your day walking from property to property, ensuring your own and customers’ safety at all times. Once you arrive you’ll read the meters and record the information accurately on a state of the art handheld device. This will be done whilst delivering first class customer service to every property you visit. You work on your own and will have the motivation to work quickly and efficiently in an independent role. Come rain or shine you’ll brave the elements to get the job done.
