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're looking for smart meter engineers with a proven track record of safety and customer excellence. You’ll be representing our brands in our customers’ homes; in many cases, the first face-to-face contact a customer has with Octopus Energy - so our expectations are high.
You’ll be just as happy talking to the customer and getting to know them as you are about doing the installation itself. You’ll be fitting meters; showing customers how their meter and in-home display works; how it can help them save energy and answering any questions about the green energy revolution we are leading.
As part of the Octopus Energy Services team, we’ll ensure you have the best of everything you need to deliver the top class service we’re aiming for. You’ll be supported by an office team who will share the same performance goals, so we’re always working as one team to deliver the best possible experience for the customer. You’ll also have the backing of Octopus Energy’s massive tech power - so we’ll be able to constantly evolve and shift processes to ensure we’re always delivering our best service. This should help to keep admin to a minimum, allowing you to focus on what you do best.
You can based anywhere in CT, ME, DA, TN, DA, RH, BR, GU, RG, CR, TW, UB, MK, CB, CO, IP, PE, NN, SY, WR, LE, NG, DE, S, DN, LA, CA, YO, TS, E, SW, SE, NN, W.

What you'll need

  • Safety at the forefront of everything you do
  • Excellent people skills and a dynamic approach to smart metering
  • Previous experience in domestic dual fuel metering
  • Gas Safe – CCN1/MET1 or CMA1/MET1 (or equivalent);
  • MOCoPA - at least 1ph WC

  • A flexible working approach and a desire to create a positive customer experience
