Our mission

We get out of bed in the morning to drive an energy revolution that helps Britain achieve net zero by being passionate, people-focused and collaborative.

Shamie, a Brand Content Manager tells us what it is like to work at Smart Energy GB.

In this video, Shamie talks about how people collaborate at Smart Energy GB from the concept stage to the final output.

Collaboration, social connection, and our lovely offices—designed to facilitate teamwork—play a role in creating a workplace where everyone feels empowered to offer their best.

Our cause

We work on behalf of government and the energy industry. Smart meters are pivotal to a flexible and efficient energy system and without them reaching net zero will be more expensive, take longer and may even result in missed targets.

Our goal is to ensure that everyone who is eligible for a smart meter has one installed. We help consumers to better understand how getting a smart meter can benefit them, including those in vulnerable circumstances.

Our people strategy

Our people are central to our mission. At Smart Energy GB, we aim for everyone to find fulfilment and growth in their work. We're committed to empowering our team members to develop their skills and expertise. We welcome and encourage diversity, equity, and inclusion. We embrace it because it makes us better, improves our work, and cultivates a community we can all be proud to be part of.

We are proud to be a London Living Wage Employer,  a Disability Confident Leader, and part of The Sunday Times Best Places to Work for 2023 and 2024.

Our benefits

At Smart Energy GB, every team member goes above and beyond, contributing to our ambitious goals and helping one another out.

We want to look after all our people by focusing on creating an inclusive and supportive workplace where they can give their best. We believe employee wellbeing and flexible working are crucial pillars of any progressive workplace, deeply rooted in the psychological contract. 

Our benefits include a competitive pension scheme, 25 days of annual leave (plus bank holidays), Christmas office closure, gym memberships, private medical insurance, annual health checks and eye tests, a season ticket loan and annual volunteer days.

Our comprehensive wellbeing program, Thrive, includes fitness classes, awareness sessions, guest speakers and 1:1 support sessions with a counselling psychologist. Through our employee assistance program, employees and their families have confidential access to financial, medical, and mental health advice.

Our London office also features the 'Thrive Room', a private space for decompressing, meditation, prayer, or for new mothers needing to express milk.

David, a Public Affairs Officer tells us what it is like to work at Smart Energy GB.

In this video, David shares his insights on how Smart Energy GB's clear and positive mission attracted him to the organisation.

David also highlights the importance of our in-house Thrive program, which offers a variety of activities and events aimed at promoting mental health and wellbeing.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We have established a robust framework of initiatives dedicated to fostering fairness, representation, and a sense of belonging in our workplace.

We actively welcome applications from underrepresented groups, particularly focusing our recruitment efforts on ethnic minorities, individuals from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, those with disabilities, and diverse gender identities.

We’re proud to be one of the first organisations awarded All In Champion status, as part of the Advertising Association, ISBA, and IPA’s initiative. As an All In Champion, we place an emphasis on improving the experience and representation of Black, disabled, working-class, women, Asian, and older talent.

We want to make our recruitment practices as inclusive and fair as possible, and as part of that, we have joined the Disability Confident Scheme. We actively advocate for individuals with disabilities ensuring they not only receive support but also have guaranteed interview opportunities if they meet minimum job requirements.

We want our team to reflect the diversity of the wider population. This includes the representation of people from ethnic minorities and lower socio-economic backgrounds. We apply the Rooney Rule to achieve this. Subject to consent, we ensure that at least one candidate from both ethnic minority and lower socio-economic backgrounds, who meet the essential selection criteria for the role, are shortlisted for an interview.

We are keen to hear from people who have potential, rather than just experience, in our recruitment process. While each role has essential and desirable criteria, we encourage applicants to apply even if they don't fully meet all the desirable criteria.
