What we offer

In return, you will be part of a purpose driven team where you can really make a difference. In

  1. Wellbeing
    We believe that for individuals to thrive and develop, they need to be healthy and feel positive. Wellbeing is the top priority and focus for Rebel Energy.

    Individuals in a workplace should be given the freedom and space to take charge of their own workload and trusted to make the right judgemental call. Rebel Energy aims to create a culture of responsibility and trust.
    We’ll do this by using technology to connect teams, encouraging and enabling remote working, training staff to engage with customers as humans rather than robotically following a script, and providing them with the freedom and space to make decisions.
