So how could a day at Swale Heating look?
Sarah grabs her cup of tea from the staff kitchen and logs onto her computer and phone system.
Sam checks his tablet and sets off in his van to his first job of the day.
So far this morning, Sarah has spoken with 15 customers and booked appointments for 5 customers with no heating or hot water.
Sam has been to 3 customers houses to carry out their annual services.
It’s time for Sarah to have lunch. She heads downstairs to the kitchen to take a look and buy some cakes at the bake sale being run for charity.
Sam sees a coffee shop and decides to grab lunch in between jobs using his Swale benefits account to get discount.
Sarah has helped 6 customers fix their boilers over the phone without the need for an engineer to attend.
This afternoon, Sam has been to 3 customers who have needed boiler repairs. He got their boilers back up and running again.
Sarah is finishing her productive day helping customers by cycling home on her new bike bought through the company cycle2work scheme.
Time to find the company fuel card and head home, but not before stopping off at the gym where the Swale benefits account offers a discount.
‘I started at Swale Heating in June 2011 as a Call Centre Operative. I then chose to do a plumbing apprenticeship with Swale Heating, and I have progressed through the business and now work as a Service Engineer. I really enjoy working at Swale Heating and the support I have received throughout my training from the team has been exceptional.’

‘I joined Swale Heating in 2012 and have learnt every field-based role from apprentice, plumber, gas engineer, call out and now to my current role of Regional Support Manager. It’s been a pleasure to grow under their leadership and with the hard work I have put in, I have been recognised and rewarded’
