EV Charge Point Electricity & Metering Team Leader

We’re building a customer-focused team of engineers to install smart electricity meters and EV charge points into customers’ homes.


The role

Smart meters & Electric Vehicles are here and we’re buzzing about their potential, The technology will save UK consumers a lot of time (no more meter readings!) and with innovative electricity tariffs like Agile Octopus and Octopus Go making the most of the smart tech, potentially a fair bit of dough too.


Octopus Energy Services (a brand-new sister company of Octopus Energy) is looking for an electrical engineer to install EV charge points and to provide electricity meter expertise to our smart meter installation workforce. Octopus Energy has quickly established a reputation for service excellence, mainly through fast and friendly online operations - achieving a 5-star Trustpilot rating and a Which? Recommended energy supplier award for the last 2 years in a row. In fact, with Affect Energy and M&S Energy (both Octopus Energy sub-brands) 3 of the top 5 positions on Trustpilot for energy supply are taken up with Octopus brands. So we need experienced electricity experts who can not only live up to this standard but also turn it up a notch.


You’ll be representing our brands in our customers’ homes - so this is a super-important role for us - in many cases, you’ll be the first face to face contact a customer may have had with us - so our expectations are high. You’ll be just as happy talking to the customer about the installation as you are about doing the installation itself. You’ll be fitting EV charge points; showing customers how their charging point works and answering any technical questions they may have.
