Field Management Ireland (FMI) has been awarded a field sales contract by Electric Ireland for 2012 which will generate 100 jobs.
FMI and Electric Ireland previously partnered for a field sales campaign throughout the country in 2011.
This new contract will see FMI’s team of field sales representatives directly sell electricity and gas supplies to residential consumers. They will also offer additional Home Energy services to consumers, including gas boiler maintenance, attic and cavity wall insulation and boiler replacement.
As a result of the new partnership, Electric Ireland expects to increase its market share among residential gas customers.
FMI was established in 1995 with 34 full-time staff in its head office in Dublin. It has a database of more than 1,000 active field personnel.
“At FMI, we are thrilled to have been awarded the Electric Ireland residential field sales contract. We have spent many years perfecting the training, development and deployment of our direct sales teams,” said Charley Stoney, managing director of FMI.
“As a result, we have at our disposal over a thousand highly trained sales staff available countrywide, who can deal with a variety of customers, including the residential market,” said Stoney.
