Posted on Sunday, April 30, 2023
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 are looking for people based in East Midlands as we need you to be able to get to our depot in the Sheffield area on a regular basis!
Here at Octopus Energy Eco we’re responsible for delivering the government mandated eco obligation scheme on behalf of Octopus Energy. We are passionate about helping customers on low income and certain types of 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.
As our team has grown, we’re now hiring for our first ever insulation installers to help build our insulation teams! You will be joining our ECO team but that doesn’t mean you will be limited to just ECO work and certainly not limited to just carrying out one type of insulation. Octopus Energy Eco are a growing team focussed on delivering an industry leading service to all of our customers.

What you'll do

  • Working for the Insulation Manager you will be part of a Team of two who have the role of installing insulation and plastering in our customers homes
  • Learn new skills from fitting wall insulation, both inside and outside of the home
  • Troubleshoot on an ongoing basis, as part of our aim to deliver exceptional Customer services. We never leave a customer without ensuring we do what we promised
  • Work as part of a larger team with our Electricians and Heating Engineers to deliver a finished and upgraded energy efficient home
  • If you are a cavity fitter, we will train you on solid wall insulation and if you currently insulate solid walls, you will be able to diversify your skills as well adding new ones too
  • The work will mean driving to various customers homes (this could involve the odd night away however this would be rare as we try to match your visits in accordance with your location)

What you'll need

  • Experience in plastering and/or installing either cavity wall insulation (PBS), Loft Insulation, or solid wall insulation (IWI) would be awesome!
  • No previous experience? That’s not a problem as long as you are willing to learn, reliable and have an ability to deliver great face to face Customer service that's what we're looking for! Full training and support will be provided
  • A great work ethic, flexibility and the desire to deliver the very best customer service consistently
  • Be able to drive to various locations. Our Customers live all over the UK so there may be the odd night away but this wouldn’t be every week, just when one of our customers need your knowledge and expertise (that you'll get from your training!)
  • A desire to gain a long term skill that will be needed for years to come. Listen, learn, observe and then turn this into being a great insulation Installer
  • Full Clean Driving Licence
