Could you be the next UrbanVolter?

We’re seeking a Maternity Leave Financial Controller to join the team in UrbanVolt HQ, Dublin.




Who are we?

UrbanVolt is an award-winning multinational company that is having a tangible impact in the fight against the climate crisis.

We’re making it easy for the world’s largest energy users to reduce their carbon footprint, by removing the financial and operational barriers to change. UrbanVolt works with some of the world’s leading brands, executing sustainability projects across 3 continents and saving millions of kWh of electricity every year.

Our unique “As a Service” offerings include capital investment, project management and maintenance, and enable large companies to radically reduce their energy consumption without any of the associated expense, risk or hassle.

The first step in the UrbanVolt sustainability journey is Light as a Service: fully funded, fully project managed LED lighting upgrades, that result in an immediate and dramatic decrease in energy consumption and costs. A win for the environment, and our clients’ bottom line.

It takes an entire team united behind something big to make a real difference, and each department is directly involved in ensuring the success of each and every UrbanVolt project.

Currently we are a small company further building its existing presence internationally and every team member has an opportunity to work directly with senior management and have a real impact on the business. We are seeking a new team member on an initial 9 month Maternity Leave contract.

We are hiring a Financial Controller who will work within the Finance team and have a measurable impact on the long term growth of the business while adding to the positive company culture. We are looking for an ambitious detail-oriented person who can work with their own initiative and make a contribution in all aspects of the company.
