Octopus Energy is to create 1,000 jobs across its sites in Leicester, London, Brighton, and Warwick, and a new technology, data science and AI centre in Manchester.
The “tech unicorn” will double its existing workforce by the end of 2021. The new jobs will primarily go to graduates, with many opportunities for those from STEM backgrounds, to work in operations and green energy tech.

Octopus Energy CEO, Greg Jackson, said, “When Apple created the App Store, nobody knew that it would change the way we order food or transport forever.
