Here at Octopus Energy ECO, we’re responsible for delivering the government mandated eco obligation scheme on behalf of Octopus Energy! 🐙

We are super passionate about helping customers on low income and benefits improve the insulation in their homes, to help reduce their bills and carbon emissions. We work with an internal and external supply chain insulating customer homes across the UK within the compliance rules of the ECO scheme.

If you’re customer focused and have a love of helping people this could be the role for you! You’ll be making a difference by validating customer’s applications for the schemes we run, making sure they’re eligible and informing them of the installation journey.

You’ll join the ECO Validation team, learning about the different schemes and looking after customer’s applications. Day to day, you’ll be supporting customers with their applications via both phone and email. You’ll need to have great attention to detail, be an excellent team player and the drive to work in a fast-paced, target driven environment.

Wondering what the salary for this role is? Just ask us! On a call with one of our recruiters it's something we always cover as we genuinely want to match your experience with the correct salary. The reason why we don't advertise is because we honestly have a degree of flexibility and would never want salary to be a reason why someone doesn't apply to Octopus - what's more important to us is finding the right octofit!

Octopus Energy is a unique culture. An organisation where people learn, decide, and build quicker. Where people work with autonomy, alongside a wide range of amazing co-owners, on projects that break new ground. We want your hard work to be rewarded with perks you actually care about! We won best company to work for in 2022, on Glassdoor we we're voted 50 best places to work in 2022 and our Group CEO, Greg has recorded a podcast about our culture and how we empower our people
