Clean energy firm to double its workforce
Clean energy technology firm Octopus plans to double its workforce by the end of 2021, creating 1,000 new jobs and making the UK the “silicon valley of energy”.
The firm added that it will build a new clean energy technology, data science, and artificial intelligence hub in Manchester, dedicated to creating new smart grid technology.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson welcomed Octopus' hiring drive, saying, “These 1,000 jobs will provide exciting opportunities across the country for those who want to be at the cutting edge of the global green revolution.”
“And it's UK tech companies like Octopus who will ensure we continue to build back greener and remain a world leader in pioneering renewable energy, leading the path to net zero whilst creating thousands of skilled jobs."
