Ecotricity people love to deliver our green message every day. And we love that so many of them have rich and varied skills and talents. Phoebe works in our Home Moves department and has been with us for nearly two years. In that time, she’s also been running a fantastic face painting business which, luckily for us, means we get her great skills at a number of our events. We chatted with Phoebe recently to find out more.
At Ecotricity we’re really lucky to have people who are passionate about our mission to make Britain greener. They really help us to do more when it comes to spreading the green message, and we love to support them whenever possible as they pursue their own goals.

We’ve got some pretty amazing customers at Ecotricity. As well as choosing green energy, there are those who go a whole lot further too – a real driving force behind the green revolution.

The vegan food company Tideford Organics has taken the next step in its sustainable journey by switching to Britain’s leading green energy company, Ecotricity, who provide 100% green electricity generated from the wind and the sun.
The catastrophic impact of plastic pollution on the environment is becoming more and more widely known. New evidence is literally piling up, revealing the true extent of the plastic problem. Things have got to change. From large plastic items entangling marine life to micro plastics being found in the deepest parts of the ocean, our seas are suffocating.
We’re on a mission to change the world – so we’re always looking for awesome people who want to make a difference with their day job. This year, we launched our very first Ecotricity apprenticeship scheme here in Stroud. It means we can help to develop talented young people with potential – giving them an on the job insight into how we’re fighting climate change at every level of our organisation, at the same time as they continue to study for professional qualifications.
