Job Description

Help us make a big green dent in the universe. We're on a mission to drive the global renewable energy revolution, and we need loads more people to help us make our vision a reality.


We’re different.


You won’t believe it until you actually start working here. We try to explain it during the application process and through our Discovery Days but really, until you’re immersed in our culture, you’ll realise you’ve never worked anywhere like it.

At Octopus you’re not a number.

You're a human and we treat you like one. And that’s how we want our customers to feel too. We want you to help our customers - like genuinely help.

We don’t lie - it’s not easy.

We are in the middle of an energy crisis, so expect to handle challenging questions about the cost of energy whilst providing support and reassuring advice to our customers up and down the country who are facing unprecedented economic challenges. You’ll need to have a high level of resilience to be able to keep up with the demands of the role.

You’ll chat to customers over the phone and via email, whilst being given the freedom to help them in a way you too would like to be helped.

You’ll take ownership of their needs and find a way, no matter what, to figure things out with them. During this difficult time, our role here requires us to be actively looking for solutions and being able to deliver these in a friendly and timely manner.

We treat all of our customers like our grandparents (no offence intended - we really love them), with patience, kindness and warmth. We could tell you so many stories of the relationships customers have built with us as if we were family.

Would you believe they send us poems, artwork, handwritten letters, photos of their family, babies and pets? It’s bonkers and we love it. We call it the Octopus effect.

Your colleagues will be some of the most amazing people you’ll be lucky enough to call friends and that you can count on to support you each day and every step of the way on your journey with us. They are the most enthusiastic, determined, curious crew who love being part of disrupting the energy industry but also sharing our mission to humanise the customer service experience. We encourage all our people to ask questions, drive change and share ideas.

There’s a lot (and we mean a lot) to learn in this role, and a lot of work to do. Learning in a fast-paced, dynamic environment isn’t for the faint-hearted. Every day you will come across problems you’ve not seen before, and you’ll be tasked with bringing about creative and practical solutions. We’ll help you build your knowledge and be committed to your development. If you’ve got the attitude to thrive here and want to make a difference - we’ll go that extra mile for you.


As a company, we are always learning - innovation means constant evolution and change. As a result, we are looking for team members that are happy to be as flexible and dynamic as we are!
