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.
Octopus Energy Generation (OEGEN) is a leader in sourcing, investing in, and managing a wide range of utility-scale renewable energy assets. As we continue to expand our investment base, we are dedicated to building a diverse team that reflects the communities we serve.
Since our entry into the renewables market in 2010, OEGEN has achieved remarkable milestones, becoming a leading investor in onshore wind across mainland Europe, the largest investor of solar power in Europe, and recently venturing into offshore wind projects. Currently, we manage a global portfolio of over £7 billion in renewable energy assets.
Our operational portfolio consists of more than three hundred large scale energy-generating companies. We take pride in our wind farms, solar power plants, and upcoming projects in energy storage and hydrogen. To support our ambitious growth plans and long-term ownership of energy assets, we are expanding our team.
We are looking for a motivated and proactive individual to join the Fund Management team to support on our investor facing activities and deliverables. You will predominantly be focused on our flagship private fund, Octopus Renewables Infrastructure SCSp (better known as the “Sky” fund) whilst supporting and ensuring synergies and coordination across our broader private institutional funds.
The role will be full-time for a duration of 9 months to cover for a colleague on maternity leave. The role will be based in London, with flexibility and remote work options to accommodate your needs and maintain work-life balance. An average of 3 days a week in the office would be desirable. The role will report to the Fund Manager of the Sky fund.

What you'll do

  • Oversee and project manage the Sky fund’s investor inbox, responding to or delegating queries to relevant team members and ensuring timely responses.
  • Coordinate responses to queries from investors (e.g. DDQs, ESG templates, ad hoc queries following meetings), ensuring consistency across all fund responses.
  • Manage the Sky fund’s investor relations portal and fundraising dataroom; coordinate with internal teams to ensure all policies, marketing materials and disclosures are relevant and up to date.
  • Coordinate, produce and help to present bespoke materials for meetings with existing or prospective investors, tailored to the investor’s specific requests and interests.
  • Coordinate, design and produce all of the Sky fund’s external facing documents, such as quarterly factsheets, pitch decks, standard DDQ and the annual report.
  • Project manage RFI/RFP processes, co-ordinating with specialist functions across the business to respond thoroughly and promptly.
  • Gather market intelligence, including competitor analysis, peer group activity, industry best practice and key issues affecting investors.
  • Act as the last defence in quality control by checking and questioning data/materials before they are distributed to investors/prospective investors.
  • Support and lead on several ongoing OEGen initiatives to improve the reporting quality, consistency and transparency to our investors.

What you'll need

  • Relevant work experience in the financial sector, preferably in an investor relations, fundraising or marketing role.
  • Creative flair with excellent written skills and ability to build engaging presentations and investor deliverables.
  • Numerate and able to understand financial concepts.
  • Exceptional attention to detail and accuracy.
  • Capability for independent judgement – ability to independently plan, organise and prioritise work, whilst being flexible in approach and able to support others with shifting priorities, working autonomously and as a team player.
  • Proactive in building excellent relationships across external partners and internal stakeholders.
  • Confident presentation skills.
  • Highly organised with a high work rate, able to thrive in a busy environment juggling multiple competing priorities.
  • Proficient in the use of the Microsoft Office suite.
  • Experience using a CRM system and RFP response management tool would be an advantage.
  • Experience working on private investment funds with an understanding of the investor landscape and fundraising processes is an advantage.
  • Experience in the renewables sector is an advantage.
