We want someone that can redesign the whole process of procurement and make it feel like a purchase of a product. We have two problems on how the world works today and we are looking for somebody that can help us solve this:

  1. Buying any retrofit solution can be very complicated
  2. Energiesprong is aiming to broker a volume procurement deal between a group of housing organisations and suppliers.

We want someone who can facilitate demand and supply partners coming together to co-design a collective purchasing scheme. More information is available by contacting Sally Hancox or by downloading our information sheet.
