Meeting our SME electricity contracts team

With continued volatility in the energy market the NFU Energy team have been inundated with more calls and queries than ever before.  We have experienced a 6-fold increase in calls coupled with an increase in the average call time as members have required a more detailed explanation of the rapidly changing market conditions.

To manage call volumes and continue to provide a good level of service we have expanded the team in recent months and would like to take the opportunity for you to meet the team that assists with your queries, quotes, and contracts.

The SME team consists of the sales team and the admin team which makes them a perfect mix to deal with your queries. Here is a little bit from our energy consultants -
