We are Octopus Energy
The UK's largest investor in solar generation, providing greener, tech-led energy that’s fit for 2019.
What we do
We are a fast-growing renewable energy start-up in Great Britain and part of Octopus Investments., the UK’s largest investor in solar farms and the third largest investor in renewable generation overall. The solar farms we have funded generate 40% of all the UK’s large scale solar, enough to power over a quarter of a million homes (when the sun shines!).
We’ve also invested in wind generation, anaerobic digestion plants and “rapid response” gas generation to help balance supply when there’s no wind and sun.
The office environment is friendly and relaxed.
Being an extremely fast-growing scale up means fantastic opportunities for quick progression and a huge amount of responsibility, meaning it's an excellent environment to begin your career and learn a lot. The huge number of grads that we hire also means a fun, young culture and a fantastic social life!
We have a start up environment
This means that driven individuals will find themselves rewarded with high levels of responsibility, encouraged to influence and direct vital areas of the business.
It's also a very meritocratic environment, meaning if you work hard and illustrate excellent customer service, you will be rewarded for it. These rewards come in the form of quick progression into leadership roles, or moving into other areas of the business that are of real interest to you.
We love hiring graduates, and investing in their training and development.
With around 70 graduates working in the Leicester office, the culture is fun, sociable and extremely collaborative. We will invest in your training and development to ensure you become a real energy expert. Our grads are all genuinely great friends with each other, meaning after work drinks, work socials and birthday celebrations are a regular occurrence!
