Bath-based renewable energy supplier Pure Planet is recruiting eight new staff members, continuing their ongoing expansion throughout lockdown.
The digital energy business has continued to expand during lockdown, with 12 new starters already having joined since mid-March, even as all staff continue to work from home.
The new recruits will increase the total workforce to 113.
Pure Planet, which supplies 100% renewable electricity and 100% carbon offset gas at zero markup, recently passed a milestone of attracting 150,000 members to its digital service, and is creating more new digital-led Member Service Advisor roles to continue to enhance its award-winning service and support.
Pure Planet was named as the best employer in the South West in the Sunday Times Best Companies annual survey, and is the second-best small company to work for anywhere in the country.
The company is planning to announce further expansion next month with more roles being created across the business
Pure Planet’s co-founder Steven Day said: “We are incredibly fortunate to be expanding and creating more jobs at a time when we know many firms in our sector and elsewhere are cutting staff.
“We have such a vibrant, hard-working team at Pure Planet. Our successes and growth are a massive credit to them – and to our Members, of course.
“With the climate emergency, and a deepening realisation that we can all do something to help, more and more people are choosing renewables to power their homes.
“Pure Planet is happy to be playing a growing part in the clean energy sector, and to do all we can to help create more jobs to help build a cleaner, greener economic recovery.”
