Alex Rodgers explains life as an EPC provider

Submitted by: MikeC (Admin) on 10-Jul-07 10:05:41 AM


In this podcast, I'm joined by Alex Rodgers, Head of Operations for Christopher Rodgers (Home & Energy) Ltd who bravely volunteered to answer the questions preying on the minds of many Domestic Energy Assessors (DEAs) confused by the plethora of options available for both sourcing work, and the fees involved for receiving it.

Listen: Christopher Rodgers Interview (MP3, approx 50 mins)

Also now available at Google Video here (with exciting graphic!).

Show Notes

Guide to self-employment for Domestic Energy Assessors - useful information and candid advice from Christopher Rodgers himself, who - don't forget - built his company as a self-employed person. Recommended read. - Link removed, company no longer trades.

Alex is recruiting! Get in touch via their site or email.


For some reason I failed to credit both Neil Kurz and "Loppy" for some of the questions used on the show - million apologies!

Thanks and praise

Many thanks to Christopher Rodgers (Home & Energy) Ltd and Alex for coming forward and reaching out to the Domestic Energy Assessor community in what, I suppose, many might regard as a risky thing to do given the way some currently feel towards EPC Panels.

I'm employed by Chris Rodgers Home & Energy along with many others, I have just listened to the interview and I'd advise you to re-interview Alex Rodgers. They employed people on full time contracts £22k plus, ** They have not stood by their contracts "we've got to change it to zero rated contract pay per job, thats if they bother giving you any work ** I few of my collegues have had not work or contact with Chirs Rodgers since Sept 07 !!!
After joining the company your lucky to get any assessments to do.they are not in contact with their employees they avoid speaking to you some of us are in postions of loosing homes They don't care.
