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 Services is a tech driven business that is spearheading the transition to greener, cheaper energy through the installation of in-home technologies; from smart meters and EV chargers; to low carbon heating, home batteries, solar, and beyond.
We deliver smart energy, low carbon solutions for our customers and we’ve fallen head-over-heels in love with heat pumps - which provide an ultra-efficient, reliable alternative to replace dirty gas boilers that contribute 14% of the UK’s CO2 emissions.
We are now looking for a Compliance Manager with experience in FCAs to join us on a 6-9 month fixed term contract basis.

  • Collaborate with various departments to gather necessary information and data for the application
  • Review and update company policies and procedures to ensure compliance with FCA requirements
  • Liaise with FCA representatives and address queries throughout the application process
  • Prepare regular progress reports for the Head of Compliance and CFO
  • Assist in developing a post-authorization compliance framework
  • Support the training of staff members on new policies and regulatory requirements
  • Contribute to the company's regulatory strategy in the context of its low carbon technology focus

What you'll need

  • Strong working knowledge of the FCA's CONC, DISP, SYSC, PRIN, COCON handbooks and the requirements under the Senior Managers and Certification Regime requirements
  • 3-5 years of experience in financial services regulation or compliance
  • In-depth knowledge of FCA regulations and the authorization process for brokerage firms
  • Excellent project management and communication skills
  • Analytical mindset with strong attention to detail and accuracy
  • Experience in policy writing and implementation
