Smart meter installers - South East 

We’re building a customer-focused team of engineers to install smart electricity and gas meters in our customers’ homes.

The role


Smart meters are here. These are energy industry game changers, 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 meter tech, potentially a fair bit of dough too.


Octopus Energy Services (a brand new sister company of Octopus Energy) is looking for engineers to install these meters. 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 installers 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 meters; showing customers how their meter and in home display works; providing energy efficiency advice and answering any questions they may have.


Why work with us?


As part of the Octopus Energy Services team, we’ll ensure you have the best of everything you need to deliver the top class service we’re aiming for. You’ll be supported by an office team who will share the same performance goals, so we’re always working as one team to deliver the best possible experience for the customer. You’ll also have the backing of Octopus Energy’s massive tech power - so we’ll be able to constantly evolve and shift processes to ensure we’re always delivering our best service. This should help to keep admin to a minimum, allowing you to focus on what you do best.
