Our people are the heart of this revolution so exceptional leadership and can-do attitude will be key to our success. 

We’re looking for a Sales Performance Analyst to join our Commercial function. Reporting into the Strategy & Operations Lead, you will produce and deliver all business insights for the Solar acquisition channel covering growth and quality metrics. 

This is a fantastic opportunity to work on problems that genuinely move us closer to Net Zero with a company that is passionate about building great technology and products that change the way customers use energy.
