What we do

We’re Octopus Investments. And we’re a bit unusual.

By that, we mean we’re a values-driven business that puts our customers at the heart of everything we do. We believe that by investing in the people, ideas, and industries that will change the world, we can help to create a better future for people and the planet.

Now, spruce up that CV and check out our vacancies.

How we behave

Octopus Investments is only as good as the people who work here. We believe that great business is about how you make others feel. And it all starts with our people – they create our culture, define the relationships we build with our customers and each other, and ultimately make Octopus what it is. That’s where our values come in:

Be Bold

Quick on your feet? We champion those who can make fast decisions, are open to changing their minds if there’s a better way to do things and aren’t afraid to fail.

Be Helpful

A little help can go a long way – we believe everyone should always behave like it’s day one and remember that without our customers, there is no business.

Be Straightforward

Feedback is vital, but how you deliver it is equally as important. We love people who have opinions but express them in a way that’s respectful and easy to understand.

Octopus Investments in a nutshell

So, what is it that makes Octopus such an amazing place to work?

We asked some of our employees.

Here’s what they said…

Not like other companies

What sets Octopus Investments apart from the rest?

We don’t think or act like most corporate companies. Our ideas rarely fit into little grey filing cabinets.

What makes us different is we’re…

  • B Corp-certified, meaning we care about the impact of our investments as much as the returns they generate.
  • Always doing things differently, with customers at the heart of everything we do.
  • Passionate about giving back – our charitable foundation Octopus Giving is dedicated to helping charities improve the world.
  • Entrepreneurial – our internal programme, Springboard, is designed to support innovative business-minded individuals working at Octopus in pursuing their ideas through financial support, expert advice, and mentorship.
  • Not bureaucratic – we don’t like having rules, for rules’ sake.
  • Values-led, with genuine care for our people and their wellbeing.
  • Focused on problem-solving, with a mission to invest in the industries, ideas, and people that will change the world.
  • And so much more…

“Octopus is made up of incredible people with big ideas. A culture that embraces change, innovation and vulnerability.”

Life at Octopus Investments

You’ve seen a role you like and applied. Fantastic. What’s next? We’ll always get back to you within a week, but in the meantime, here’s a little rundown of what to expect in the interview process.

We believe great talent can come from any background. That’s why our recruitment process is typically four stages and designed to be as unbiased as possible.

Our goal is to get to know the authentic you while bringing to life the unique Octopus culture so you can decide if we’re a good fit for you.

Throughout the interview process, we’ll be looking at three key areas:

  • Culture-add.
  • Team collaboration.
  • Technical ability.

Proud to be a B Corp

We mentioned earlier that we’re a B Corp company, and it’s something we’re very proud of.

So much of a company’s success is about how you make people feel and treat your environment. People want to do business with companies that care – companies they can trust to do the right thing. That’s why we decided to take Octopus Investments on the journey to becoming a certified B Corp.

Did you know?

To gain B Corp certification, a company needs to meet high standards and prove it positively impacts its workers, customers and the wider community and environment.

Ready to apply?

If you’ve got your CV ready, take a look at our vacancies and start applying today.

And remember, even if you think you don’t tick every box, we still encourage you to go for it. We’re more interested in your potential than your experience.

Good luck!

No worries if you can’t find your dream role

You can apply speculatively, and we’ll keep you in mind when a role that’s a good fit comes up.

In case you’re looking for Octopus Energy…

We get it! The names are very similar, which can be confusing, but we’re actually two different businesses. While Octopus Energy is also part of the Octopus Group, it’s separate from us here at Octopus Investments.

So, if that’s what you’re looking for, head to their website.
