Diversity and Inclusion Specialist
Bulb is a technology company, green energy supplier and also the fastest growing business in the UK. We’ve developed a unique operating model to provide renewable energy to UK homes and businesses. Bulb’s mission is to help its members reduce their carbon emissions and save money on their bills. In just 5 years, Bulb has grown to supply more than 1.7 million members with green energy. The Bulb team has grown to over 800 people and we expect that to be in the thousands by 2022. In the last year, we’ve also expanded to supply homes in France, Spain and the US. It’s an exciting time to join as we continue to grow and expand internationally.
We care deeply about leading its industry to become a more inclusive and diverse place and we work hard to lead by example in this. Having a diverse team helps us to understand the needs of our diverse member base and make better decisions on their behalf. Ultimately, it brings us closer to achieving our mission of helping people to lower their bills and cut carbon emissions. Over the last 5 years we’ve firmly embedded d+i within our approach to employee experience and we’re now keen to further build on that foundation structurally and strategically. We are now looking to hire a Diversity and Inclusion Specialist to achieve our aim of making Bulb a fair, diverse and inclusive place to work. We want our team to be representative of our members, and our leadership team to be as diverse as Team Bulb. We want all of our Bulberinos to have a strong sense of belonging and access to equal opportunities. Within this role you have the opportunity to directly influence how we achieve these goals across our team.
