About Octopus

The Octopus Group includes Octopus Investments, Octopus Energy, Octopus Renewables, Octopus Real Estate, 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. We call it‘a brighter way’, changing today for a better tomorrow. And we’re always on the look-out for smart, talented people who share our values.

About the role

We're looking for an Investment Analyst to work within the Transport team reporting to Dan Saunders.

  • The team's current customer base is a combination of SME fleet owners and sole traders, but we are looking to expand to larger scale corporate fleets. 
  • The candidate will need to be able to analyse new investment opportunities as they arise. This will involve adapting existing financial models to be tailored to road vehicle and infrastructure related investments. The canditate will also be exposed to credit analysis with the view to taking ownership of customer credit analysis in the future.
  • We will continuely be looking to access institutional funds to deploy and therefore the candidate will be  responsible for liasing with internal investment committees to secure funds, as well as liaising with external financing institutions for senior debt. 
  • The candidate will work closely with Dan Saunders, as well as Octopus Energy for Business, to develop commercial proposals to clients, including meeting with the clients. 

About you

  • The candidate needs to be highly proactive; able to adapt quickly to the changing needs within our team; and be comfortable with uncertainty as both the mobility sector and our business model continues to evolve. Acceptance of need to 'get hands dirty' across all elements of the business is a must.
  • Excellent financial modelling skills with an interest in continuing to develop these skills for new investment structures, as we look for ways to differentiate our offering.
  • Experience of developing tailored pitch decks for customers. 
  • Understanding that both customers and suppliers will be key to the success of building this business, and therefore the ability to maximise the quality of their experience in dealing with us is key. 

And to really stand out from the crowd

  • Someone who is entrepreneurial and energetic, with a strong desire to build a new business and ready to face the challenges (both good and bad) that come with it. This is small and lean start-up and needs to be thought of in that way.
  • A strong interest in innovation, sustainability and technology is key. An understanding of new vehicle and energy technology is helpful but not a prerequisite. Same for renewable energy and its supply. 


Our values and DNA

At Octopus we don’t just focus on what we do but also how we do it. Everyone to shares our values of being straightforward, helpful and bold. And while these are the principles that guide us as an organisation, our DNA
goes even further, by revealing our inner strengths:

• We are loyal: we fully buy-in to the company’s vision and believe in everything that Octopus stands for.
• We are respectful: we live and breathe the Octopus values of being helpful, straightforward and bold.
• We are resilient: we have an inner strength that means we never give in.
• We are intellectually curious: we seek to understand how the world works and we’re always learning, adapting
and improving.
• We understand who our customers are: and because we know them really well, we always give them our very best.
