About us

One of the biggest things we can all do to tackle climate change is switch to clean power. At Good Energy, we’ve been giving people that choice since 1999. We supply thousands of homes and businesses with 100% renewable electricity, sourced from local, independent generators. And, by working with our customers, generators and investors, we’re achieving our purpose of powering a cleaner, greener future together.   

We’re now beginning an exciting new chapter in our story, which will see us explore innovative ways to help more and more homes and businesses use clean, renewable power. To do this, we need talented people to join us. And that’s where you come in.  Join us, and become part of a team whose day-to-day work contributes to building a more sustainable world for us all.

What’s the role? 

Providing exceptional support and advice to our customers has always been at the heart of Good Energy’s business. The Customer Contact team is at the forefront of delivering this service and as the voice of Good Energy, naturally interacts with our customers in a way that reflects our unique values.

Our commitment to the evolution of our approach to service will mean this will not be a typical customer service role.  We are looking for people who share our customers’ commitment to a cleaner greener future, and can give them an exceptional level of technically well informed service.

This means not only ensuring the basics of good customer service are delivered brilliantly, but increasingly supporting them with energy efficiency and technology advice to help them efficiently use the energy they consume, and in some cases generate, in their home.

A little more about what you’ll be doing. . .

  • Answering our customers’ queries through telephony, email, and web/digital channels, in a way that maximises effective and efficient resolution for our customers.
  • Delivering exceptional customer service ensuring each interaction provides a customer experience that focuses on fulfilling the customer’s needs, and builds trust and value with them. 
  • Continuously developing your knowledge relating to the energy industry, energy efficiency, and renewables to ensure you can effectively support and develop customer knowledge
  • Increasingly delivering an excellent sales service to Good Energy customers, through the effective promotion of appropriate cross-sell and up-sell offers
  • Delivering to targets that ensure we best meet our customer needs and demand
  • Proactively owning your development and learning to ensure you remain expert in any new Good Energy propositions and industry developments
  • Identifying opportunities and making recommendations to enable the business to constantly improve its delivery to customers
