Most companies don’t put their customers first. And when it comes to the things that matter most to us in life, like financial security, health and wellbeing, that’s a big problem. Octopus was launched in 2000 to change this. We’ve taken the spirit of entrepreneurship to build businesses with one purpose – to create something better. We’re developing innovative investment and savings products. We’re supporting entrepreneurs and fast-growing smaller companies. We’re helping to build healthcare facilities fit for future generations. We’re giving borrowers better access to property loans. And we’re generating renewable energy and supplying it to thousands of happy customers. Overall, we’ve helped put more than £7 billion into the UK economy. And because customers are always at the heart of everything we do, we’re making a difference to people’s lives. There’s much more to come. We call it ‘a brighter way’. Changing today for a better tomorrow.

Our company values
Random acts of kindness make the workplace a better place so we value people that go out of their way to be helpful and give people reasons to smile. It’s important to us that you obsess about your customers, and show the same enthusiasm and loyalty like it were always day one. We also care about doing the right thing even when no-one is watching.
Life is complicated enough. Don’t make it harder for yourself, or for others - sometimes the simplest approach works wonders. We also like to tell it how it is, remembering that humility and manners go a long way.
Every great business started with a flash of inspiration. If you’ve got a great idea, we don’t want you to keep it to yourself – think big! We value positivity and finding a way through the most challenging of problems, and making decisions quickly is really important to us.
At Octopus, we recognise the importance of embracing diversity in order to create a high performance culture.
