Who we are

We're primarily a distributor of components of renewable energy systems - from solar panels to batteries and heat pumps. Most of our staff operate forklifts rather than keyboards. 

Midsummer is a fast-growing company selling a range of renewable energy products, primarily to installation companies, from our offices in Cambridge and Dublin. We sell solar PV systems, battery storage, electric vehicle chargers, heat pumps and a variety of other associated products, and were recognised as the UK's best renewables distributor for 2020.

The Eco Home

Midsummer began on a narrowboat in 2005. Our MD Andy lived off-grid and, as a former climate scientist, had experience with PV and battery systems in remote locations.

Are you enthusiastic about talking to people, and committed to a career promoting the growth of renewable energy? Do you enjoy solving problems, building relationships and providing excellent customer service?

We pride ourselves on being a distributor that offers a wide range of great products, but with the support of friendly and helpful service too. We have some industry leading web tools to make ordering easy, but we strongly believe that people buy from people and we're looking for someone to join our new Renewable Heat team as we continue to pick up customers in this rapidly expanding market.

Who we’re looking for

You’re looking for a career that will make a difference. Disappearing into a large organisation or doing the same thing every day doesn't appeal - you'd like to put your energy and passion for customer service to good use, helping to grow a company that's making a difference. 

We'll be looking for candidates who have a demonstrable interest in sustainability and decarbonisation of heating. Some experience of sales or building relationships would be an advantage, but a winning way with customers and a willingness to learn also go a long way. Any experience in the heating industry would be an advantage but more important is the ability to quickly grasp technical information, and explain it clearly.

We have unrivalled heating design software developed in-house that will drive sales to some extent and need promoting alongside the products. The ideal candidate will thrive in a team, but have a problem-solving and self-led approach during busy periods. Establishing and building relationships is a key part of the role, along with attention to detail and a friendly manner.

The heat pump industry is growing fast and this is a great opportunity to get involved early and grow with the market. 

What it offers

You'll be joining a dynamic company in a new and fast growing speciality with loads of potential to grow. There’s a friendly and informal atmosphere, and a real buzz when things get going.

You will learn a lot on the job about a range of things, and we’ll bring you up to speed as fast as possible. It's a fast-moving industry so new products, customers and technologies come along all the time - there will always be new things to learn. Our own tools are also evolving rapidly.

This is a full time role based in our offices on the outskirts of Cambridge, with a salary of £26,000-£30,000 depending on experience. Long term employees also take home a share of the profits of the company. 

We can be flexible with start dates. 

We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.
