We’ve built market-leading positions in a number of specialist sectors, including smaller company financing, renewable energy, healthcare and property finance. We employ 500 people and manage more than £6 billion on behalf of more than 50,000 investors. Our products don’t just help real people solve real life problems, they also make a positive impact on the world around us.

 

The Octopus Group incorporates Octopus Energy, Octopus Healthcare, Octopus Investments, Octopus Property, Octopus Ventures and Octopus Labs. Our aim is to have an impact in everything we do, and to make a vital contribution to the UK economy by helping people, companies and institutions generate wealth.

  • Respond to all email and written enquiries from our customers, maintaining Octopus tone of voice and brand
  • Take ownership for all enquiries, keeping your customer updated throughout the journey
  • Help us really understand our customers and our business by regularly gathering feedback. You are empowered to propose improvements (process/ systems/ service/ literature etc.) to enhance the client experience.
  • Break the mould by using your natural flair to engage with your customers, achieving trust and loyalty within a typically corporate sector
  • Organise and facilitate face to face meetings with our direct investors where applicable
  • Be self-motivated to keep up to date with Octopus’ products and services, as well as industry knowledge
  • Help create a fun but professional environment for you and your team mates to help take customer service to the next level
  • You must have an innovative attitude towards customer service
  • Organisational and task management skills are a must in order to meet our SLAs
  • Opportunity to work on and deliver internal projects (eg digital improvements/process enhancements)

Qualifications

  • Substantial experience of a similar role within customer service and/or financial services
  • You should have or be willing to gain in depth knowledge regarding AML (anti money laundering), DPA (data protection) and any other regulatory requirements as required
  • Desirable but not essential – ability to gain industry qualifications

 

Our Values:

Be helpful
Random acts of kindness make the workplace a better place so, go out of your way to be helpful, and give people reasons to smile

Be straightforward
Life is complicated enough. Don’t make it harder for yourself, or for others. Sometimes the simplest approach works wonders.

Be bold
Every great business started with a flash of inspiration. If you’ve got a great idea, don’t keep it to yourself

 

At Octopus, we recognise the importance of embracing diversity in order to create a high performance culture.
