We drive system change: with transformative tech to make renewable energy the norm and end global reliance on fossil fuels.

Octopus Energy Group is made up of 10 businesses spanning 6 countries across 3 continents, including: Octopus Energy Retail, Kraken Technologies, Octopus Energy Generation, Kraken Flex, Octopus Electric Vehicles, and the Octopus Centre for Net Zero. More on OEG @ octopusenergy.group

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.

Octopus Energy Services is a tech driven business that is spearheading the transition to greener, cheaper energy through the installation of in-home technologies; from smart meters and EV chargers; to low carbon heating, home batteries, solar, and beyond. 

We deliver smart energy, low carbon solutions for our customers and we’ve fallen head-over-heels in love with heat pumps - which provide an ultra-efficient, reliable alternative to replace dirty gas boilers that contribute 14% of the UK’s CO2 emissions.

We are now looking for a Compliance Manager with experience in FCAs to join us on a 6-9 month fixed term contract basis.

Studies have shown that some groups of people, like women, are less likely to apply to a role unless they meet 100% of the job requirements.

Across Octopus, we're looking for genuinely decent people who are honest and empathetic.
