About Us

We believe energy should be better - for you and the environment.

We’re providing a better experience for our customers through transparency, honesty and simplicity. Better for the planet, through real long-term investment in renewable generation and a low CO2 future. Better value, by throwing away the old business models of the “Big 6” and instead building a business that’s fit for the 21st century.

We already supply 100% renewable energy to nearly 800,000 homes and 5,000 businesses (including Arsenal Emirates) throughout Great Britain and we’re also the supplier behind M&S Energy.

We’re award winning for both our disruptive technology and our customer service. We’re the only energy supplier to be ever be Which? recommended for the last 2 years running, and we proudly enjoy a 5-star TrustPilot ranking from our customers.

You will be joining a company who has already disrupted and who is determined to redesign the energy industry for good.

Role Overview 

Come join Octopus Energy, a company that’s helping to save the planet with cleantech and green power. We want a social media executive to join our strange, tight-knit, yet loveable marketing team.

We’re looking for someone to help build Octopus’ online profile, assist with social listening and analytics, help with content scheduling, work alongside a team of online community managers, produce shareable content, and, really, do any and all random marketing bits that pop up along the way – from posting fluffy octopus toys across the world to spitballing punnerific Octopus beer names. (Our brainstorming sessions are pretty good, actually. Especially the skittles-fuelled ones – notoriously responsible for a competition where we gave away four brand new electric cars, including a Tesla and a Jaguar.) We need brilliant ideas that’ll engage people who might not otherwise put much thought to their energy.

You’ll be responsible for

  • Helping to create content for our social platforms including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram
  • Making the most of our social platforms through reporting/analytics
  • Planning campaigns on social media that drive overall business objectives of brand consideration, brand attractiveness, customer satisfaction
  • Supporting our Social Media Manager with ad hoc tasks 

We’re looking for someone

  • Who has experience in social media/community management
  • Who has excellent writing skills and can adapt to our tone of voice (this one trumps them all, really)
  • Who will thrive in an environment that’s fast-paced, surprising, sometimes chaotic and always fun
  • Who has a good sense of humour – we know that toeing the ‘corporate meme’ line is one of the great challenges of a digital-first company. We try to wield this power responsibly, without making too many people wince.
  • Who has experience running paid digital campaigns, and using analytical tools to learn from these
  • Who has experience with scheduling and monitoring platforms

If you want to make a difference to the millions of people and businesses suffering under a broken industry, join us and apply now.
