Covid-19 update (May 2020)
One Utility Bill is currently operating as a remote working company. New starters may be asked to attend in-person training (following social distancing guidelines) and will then be required to work from home until at least 30th June 2020.
Whilst we are able to proceed with our planned hires, the uncertainties caused by Covid-19 means we can only offer temporary contracts for most roles at this time.
Many of our current team began with us via temporary contracts and have gone on to receive permanent roles, even promotions with us.
If it is your preference and depending on the role, we will move people to permanent contracts as soon as we can in the future but we want to be honest with you that we cannot guarantee that at this point.
