Job Description


Our History

A small, independent gas supplier in the North West of England, Pennine Natural Gas was how we began. But we are always reaching for better. Since joining the Gazprom Group in 2006 and becoming Gazprom Energy we have gone from strength to strength becoming one of the leading B2B gas suppliers in the UK and expanding into France and Netherlands. We now supply over 60,000 business customers at close to 100,000 sites across Europe.

Manchester is home to our European headquarters and our locations are united by our ethos: making customers happy, doing the basics brilliantly and finding new ways to go above and beyond their expectations.

Our Future

The energy world is changing, driven by forces of decarbonisation, competition, digitalisation and customer expectations. Our strategy over the next few years responds to these big changes. This means always reaching for better for our customers, for our business and for ourselves as individuals.

We have an ambitious growth strategy that builds on our strengths - our culture, our people and our brand. We are growing in Electricity, in Green and in Gas.
