At Everoze, we are at the heart of grid-connected battery storage. We recognise that this industry is so new and fast-growing that we may miss some fantastic candidates if we only seek those with existing knowledge in the storage sector. So don’t worry if you don’t know your L-ion from your lead acid or your arbitrage from your frequency response, we’re interested in your ability to be a consultant and we can help with the storage-specific bits.

We offer

  • Real impact: We work with some of the biggest brands in the energy sector. We are regularly asked to share our thought leadership at the sector’s top conferences. You could be at the heart of this: conducting analysis which informs major investment and policy decisions;
  • Exposure: We work with clients ranging from multinational banks to community energy groups. You will be exposed to the wide range of projects financed and developed by these clients and you’ll work closely with them to address new challenges and opportunities at each turn;
  • A fast-growth environment: We set up shop with 6 partners in September 2015. Now we’re 75 strong and counting, based across the UK, France, Spain, Italy, Ireland and Germany;
  • The flattest of flat organisations: Let’s be upfront: if you thrive on hierarchy and structure, Everoze isn’t the company for you. But if you are looking for a work environment where the strength of your ideas are valued as much as your years of experience, then welcome home. You’ll be given the freedom and autonomy to shape your own career; it’s not for everyone, and with freedom comes responsibility – but we sure enjoy the buzz of owning our own careers;
  • The team works: Goodbye departmental silos! We get our offshore wind experts working on energy storage, our UK team working on French projects, our onshore wind specialists branching into solar. It keeps things fresh for us and more importantly, spurs the creative cross-fertilisation of ideas which helps us deliver unique insights and value to our clients;
  • Friendly support: Does our structure make you question, “Will I be given the support I need?” Absolutely you will. We assemble teams for each project we work on and we don’t take on a job until we have got comfortable that we have people capable, available and interested in doing the work. We have regular team calls and other company wide meetings to help us stay connected whilst having the flexibility to work independently and efficiently. We also have get-togethers where we can all let our hair down;
  • Top-notch mentorship: Most of us at Everoze have been in the renewables and energy business for well over a decade, and some of us have previously led large teams and business units. We’d love to share some of this experience, through assigning you an internal mentor to help guide your professional development. And we hope that you can return the favour by offering feedback for us too, because whether you’ve got 3 months experience, or 30 years, we’ve all got more to learn;
  • No utilisation targets: Yes that’s right! we don’t report on, or check staff utilisation to assess team or individual performance. We operate on trust within the team.  We find that happy and motivated staff are able to find the right balance between commercial work, business development and administration;
  • Flexibility: we offer flexible work hours, part-time and remote working for those who want it, so that people can develop their passions outside of work while having a fulfilling career. At Everoze we want you to bring your ‘whole-self’ to work;
  • Family friendly working: policies including paid parental leave of 16 weeks for birth partner and 4 weeks for non-birth partner;

We are owned by the employees and offer a rapid route to ownership for all new staff.
