About us

Bulb is making energy simpler, cheaper, greener. We are a startup energy supplier that provides 100% renewable electricity and gas to homes across the UK. We offer energy at a fair price, that’s simple to get and simple to manage. We are building a truly innovative independent energy supply business in the UK. Building a passionate team of people that want to do energy differently.

When we say ‘a fair price’, we mean the lowest renewable energy price in the UK. (And one of the best from any provider, full stop.) When we say ‘simple’, we mean an end to tariff trickery and no jargon. Just clear information about your energy and an energy specialist on the end of a phone when you have any questions.

The team

Bulb has grown from less than 10 people to over 60 in just 6 months. Most of the growth has been in our experience team, although we’ve also hired a number of people in marketing, technology and finance. We all have fairly diverse backgrounds in terms of experience, but everyone is a high achiever academically. There are lots of Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial grads at Bulb.

There is a very fast paced and motivated atmosphere, everyone is bought into Bulb’s mission. We don’t care about the hours, we care about the job being done. We get consistently high scores on our weekly survey that looks at work-life balance, so it’s fair to say it’s something that is important to us.

The role

Support the COO in planning, managing and delivering high impact change projects at Bulb. Manage key outsourced partners with the COO / CXO. The role will enable Bulb to fulfil its regulatory obligations in a commercial, social, and impactful way, to be as efficient as possible.

Outcomes

What are the key outcomes of the role?

  • Pro-active engagement with regulator, distributors, other suppliers and government
  • Build robust set of tools to help us automatically audit/report on ourselves to the regulator, DCC and other bodies
  • Improve efficiency of working with outsourced partners
  • Manage and deliver key change projects: prioritise projects, create business cases, design solutions, test & implement, and track impact.
  • Manage and deliver new obligations that Bulb takes on at 250k customers, in a more customer-centric and cost effective way than our competition

There is a huge opportunity for career progression – the business will be 100 odd people by the end of the year, and we will probably double that the year after. Anyone joining us now will have great opportunity to lead strategy and operations divisions themselves in the future.

Requirements

  • A logical and creative thinker with strong analytical background
  • Strong organisation and planning skills
  • Great communicator, whether presenting to a group or facilitating a work session
  • Tech-savvy to manage our cyber risk
  • Comfortable with analysing large data sets: must be comfortable with XLS, experience with SQL or similar desirable
  • Proven self-starter, with a bias to action, who is highly motivated to make an impact
