You’ll be the face of our brand, having exciting and informative conversations with potential customers. Answering their questions, busting EV myths and helping people understand how salary sacrifice works.

What you'll do...

  • Myth bust, debate and offer a well-educated perspective on electric vehicles and a greener future

  • Experience working in a very fast paced team, showing an entrepreneurial mind-set, being able to adjust to change and keep up with a fast moving business

Why else you'll love it here

  • 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!
