Posted by British Gas in Community, Your Home

We've announced 80 full time jobs at a new insulation depot in Reading. The new depot in Basingstoke Road is the first of 12 that British Gas will be opening across the UK over the next 14 months to help its customers become more energy efficient.

Based in Reading, the new roles will cover Berkshire, Surrey and Oxfordshire and will involve the installation of cavity wall and loft insulation in homes and businesses.

Wayne Smith, Head of Insulation said: "In today's economic climate, I'm delighted to talk about the creation of 80 new jobs in Reading. There is much talk about utilising green technologies and cutting our energy usage, but we can only do this if we have enough people with the right skills. Insulation is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to cut carbon emissions, which is why British Gas is investing in insulation depots right across the UK."

Martin Salter, MP for Reading West said: "I am delighted that British Gas is investing in Reading It is clear that there is a bright future in these new green jobs and in the business of creating better energy efficiency".

I am a 22 year old who since leaving school has had a few jobs. Most jobs have been in sales. Having just been laid off due to lack of work available I am looking for a job. I am looking for a job with training that will hopefully set me up in a secure career direction. I live near the Basingstoke road depot and wondered if there were any jobs available. I have a C.V. I can send if this would be of interest to you. Thanks Nathan Daniel
