ICF is adding staff to its energy efficiency team in Oregon to support a range of energy efficiency efforts. We are seeking a Trade Ally Coordinator to join the trade ally team and to help implement programs that will deliver and expand our current offerings. Trade allies are contractors and suppliers that receive training and support from the trade ally team. Coordinators also help trade allies to access and complete incentive applications for customers participating in programs. The trade allies are on the front lines of offering energy-efficiency upgrades and products to help customers use energy wisely. The coordinator works on multiple projects, interacts with all levels of staff, and applies their academic and past work experience to a variety of outreach activities. The coordinator will work directly with trade allies as well as customers, ICF program staff, subject matter experts, external partners and other stakeholders to support trade allies and meet program goals and objectives.
The position can be home-based or office-based in the Portland area and requires light travel to meet trade allies and customers at their locations and team members at our downtown office in Portland, with occasional travel across the state. Part of this position will support historically underserved communities through a variety of business development and marketing activities and events with a goal to provide outreach and support to the English as a second language community (ESL). The goal is to increase awareness and use of energy efficiency incentives among trade allies for the commercial markets they serve. The coordinator will work as part of a larger trade ally team to ensure that trade allies, customers and organizations have the resources they need to bring more energy efficiency to market. This position will assess, identify and advocate for the needs of existing and new trade allies, provide direct marketing and business development advice, monitor progress, document outcomes and report on results. We are looking for coordinators who have the ability to think strategically and act independently to improve the reach of our program into the many populations of trade allies and the customers they serve. Non-English language proficiency at a professional level is required for this position.
