While an understanding of the energy market is desirable for some positions, it is not essential as the business offers excellent training opportunities and potential for career development, with its GEAB Trainee Manager in Development (TMID) plan.

The Trainee Manager in Development scheme was set up as a pathway to promote talent from within and enables staff to gather key management skills, with a view to becoming a fully-fledged sales team manager in just six months.

Recent TMID inductee and corporate pricing specialist, Mark Storey, said: “Since starting at GEAB just a few months I ago, I have already progressed from an Energy Consultant to a Corporate Pricing Specialist, and now am delighted to be involved in the TMID.

“Career development is bandied about by a lot of consultancies, but in my experience rarely does that happen.

“At GEAB I have seen first-hand the progression opportunities and urge anyone looking to take on a new challenge to join me here.”

Paul Cobb, managing director, said: “Our latest recruitment drive comes shortly after moving to a new office space to cater for our exciting growth plans.

“We feel by recruiting additional sales experts it will allow us to continue to provide excellent customer service to our valued clients.”
