Hi! We're UW. We’re on a mission to take the headache out of utilities by providing them all in one place. One bill for energy, broadband, mobile and insurance and a whole lot of savings!

We’re aiming to double in size as we help more people to stop wasting time and money. Big ambitions, to be delivered by people like you.

Got your attention? Read on…

We put people first. It’s all about you..

We’re looking for an ambitious and motivated analyst to join our Commercial Energy team.

To be successful in this role you'll have some commercial experience in the energy industry gained through a placement year or internship. This could also be your next career step having already gained some graduate experience.

You'll need to be highly analytical and able to apply that skill set to modelling activities, demonstrating a good understanding of the drivers of the P&L, so you can help optimise our pricing and margin capture activities across the portfolio. Here's the key skills and attributes we're looking for you to bring to this role:

  • Graduate (or equivalent) in a STEM subject
  • Some commercial and analytical experience within the energy industry, with experience in driving positive commercial and risk management outcomes
  • Portfolio/risk modelling ability
  • You'll ideally be familiar with data tools such as SQL, Looker and Python
  • Like to take real accountability for making things happen
  • You’re curious, have attention to detail and want to understand the bigger picture
  • Have a talent for making complex concepts easy for others to understand
  • Are an empathetic team player who collaborates closely with others.
  • Embrace iteration, high-paced delivery, and are comfortable with change

We work together. Your team and the people you will work with…

Today we are a business of over 1 million customers, with over 2% of the domestic UK energy market. Our UW proposition is based on offering sustainable value to customers in a multi-service bundle, and as a result we are growing at pace. We expect to increase customer numbers by 1m over the next 4-5 years.

The Energy team at UW is accountable for driving the optimisation of our energy P&L, ensuring our customers get the most from their energy provision. The team look to ensure existing customers have the best deals whilst future-proofing our energy supply and contracts. It's a team of absolute experts who thrive on cutting through the complexity to get to the heart of the commercial drivers of our success.

You'll report into the Head of Commercial Contracts and work in a small team with high impact.

We deliver progress. What you’ll do and how you will make an impact.

This role supports the delivery of a substantial and growing energy P&L with modelling of our metering portfolio and P&L, highlighting the key commercial levers on our contracts to optimise our activities, working with colleagues to determine risk and commercial strategy and providing key input into the management of major supplier relationships. Your key responsibilities will be:

  • P&L forecasting on our metering base
  • Commercial optimisation of UW metering contracts to capture margin
  • Sensitivity & scenario analysis for forecasting and risk management purposes
  • Work closely with colleagues in other areas of the business to support the metering operation with efficient commercial delivery
  • Provision of ad-hoc insight and analysis to senior management for decision making

So why pick UW?

We’ve got big ambitions so there’s going to be plenty of challenges. There are also a lot of benefits:

  • An industry benchmarked salary. We’ll share it during your first conversation.
  • Share Options and a Save as You Earn scheme.
  • Hybrid working, with 2 days in the office. (We’re definitely open to discussing flexible working arrangements)
  • Discount on our services and you get our coveted Cashback Card for free.

  • A matched contribution pension scheme and life assurance up to 4x your salary.
  • Family-friendly policies, designed to help you and your family thrive.
