As a company and a place to work, we know we’re only as good as the people we have working for us. That’s why we always looking for exceptional people who connect with our culture and values and can help us write the next chapter of the Octopus story.

Within our high performance culture, we recognise the importance of embracing diversity. Which is why we have a Diversity team dedicated to promoting gender, ethnic, socio-economic, LGBT and disability equality.

If you like what you have heard, you genuinely care about customers and you’re committed to trying out new ideas and getting them done, then we want to hear from you. As always, energy, enthusiasm and a sense of humour are essential.

Rewards and development

Retaining the best people means offering opportunities to learn and grow as well as rewarding talent and hard work. We take our responsibilities seriously, offering every member of staff a fair basic salary and an established bonus structure to recognise excellent performance. Here’s what else we provide employees:


  • A non-contributory pension scheme
  • Private health insurance for the whole family
  • Life and critical illness cover
  • Income protection
  • Free BUPA health checks for long-term employees
  • A best-in-class maternity scheme
  • Childcare vouchers
  • Flexible working

We’ll also help support your career with relevant professional qualifications.


Employees can participate in our Share Incentive Plan (SIP) and buy a personal stake in the company. In 2015, 85% of eligible employees invested in the SIP, which shows just how much faith we have in where we’re headed.


The Grand Tentacle is a monthly cash prize of £1,000 for the individual who’s made us the most proud.


The longer you work here, the more holidays you get. Not bad, eh? And employees who’ve been with us for eight years get a four-week paid sabbatical.


We support biking to work and offer several subsidised health club memberships, and we run about 30 different clubs, catering for all sorts of interests and abilities. And, because your wellbeing is important to us, we even have fresh fruit delivered daily to the office.

Putting something back

Octopus Giving is about investing our time, energy and money into high impact charities led by brilliant people. Everyone at Octopus gets to spend a day volunteering at a charity of their choice. Some are even on part-time secondment with our charities, taking time out of their working week to offer invaluable help and expertise.
