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 believe energy should be better - for you and the environment.  

Octopus Energy Services 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 such as Solar PV, Heat Pumps and beyond. We deliver smart energy and low carbon heating solutions so our customers can enjoy clean, green and cosy homes. 

We're looking for Solar Install Support Specialists to assist in the successful roll-out of Solar installations across the UK!

As a Solar Install Support Specialist you will be on the front line supporting customers once the sale of solar panels has closed, helping them with a range of tasks including calling customers, generating handover documents, booking in installations & scaffolding and lots more! This role involves lots of admin so we're looking for candidates who are organised and have great time management! You'll become an expert in making sure those that are interested in Solar, navigate the journey with ease and excitement, knowing they will be one step closer to a cleaner, greener lifestyle. 

You'll liaise closely with our survey and installation teams to make the magic happen as well as 3rd party suppliers. This is an evolving role and your ability to deal with change in a fast paced environment is key!

If this sounds like you then we'd love to hear from you.

Are you ready for a career with us? We want to ensure you have all the tools and environment you need to unleash your potential. Need any specific accommodations? Whether you require specific accommodations or have a unique preference, let us know, and we'll do what we can to customise your interview process for comfort and maximum magic!

Across Octopus, we're looking for genuinely decent people who are honest and empathetic. Our people are our strongest asset and the unique skills and perspectives people bring to the team are the driving force of our success.
