Bulb

While most of Team Bulb are working from home at this time, our Covid-secure offices are open for team members who need to use them. We’ve hired and onboarded more than 150 people virtually during the pandemic and have developed our ways of working to make sure new joiners feel part of our team. This includes virtual socials, lunch time ‘Insights’ from a range of internal and external speakers, and live streaming whole company meetings. If you’d like to read more about how we’ve adapted over the last few months, head over to our blog, and you can let us know about your specific requirements as part of the recruitment process.

We’re keen to bring people with different levels of experience into our Energy Specialist team. Whether you’ve got a couple of years of customer service under your belt or you’re a recent graduate, we’d love to hear from you.

Bulb is making energy simpler, cheaper and greener. We’re changing the way the energy industry treats customers and treats the planet. It’s simple things, like calling our customers ‘members’, that help us stand out from the crowd. We recognise that delivering brilliant support and a simple digital experience makes for loyal members who recommend us to their friends and family.

Our Energy Specialists are the people in charge of Bulb’s member experience.

It’s an exciting time to join as we continue to grow rapidly in the UK, plus we have recently launched in France, Spain and Texas with lots more international expansion in the pipeline. Our Brighton office will be our second office in the UK. As an Energy Specialist, your first two months will be spent training in our London HQ.

At other energy companies, customers might be handed around to different departments, but at Bulb, our Energy Specialists are able to handle any query from beginning to end. You’ll be helping members with their accounts, answering questions about Bulb, contacting other energy suppliers and everything in between.

As an Energy Specialist, you’ll be learning huge amounts about how a modern, innovative company engages with its customers.

  • You’ll help Bulb members with a wide variety of queries by phone, email and online chat
  • You’ll work in a fast-paced environment, always striving to provide the best experience for our members
  • You’ll resolve simple queries efficiently, and you’ll take the time to investigate and resolve more complex ones
  • You’ll work in small teams to drive improvements in efficiency and member experience
  • As your experience grows, you’ll take on more responsibility within your team

Our Energy Specialists drive Bulb’s long-term success. We’re looking for people willing to invest into the role and the team. In return, we’ll give you the opportunity to impact the way our business works and develop skills that we hope will open up exciting career opportunities in the future.
