Strategy in action
We’re tackling inertia in the energy market head-on, with the launch of our new automatic switching service which will save people time, money and hassle when it comes to finding, switching to and staying on cheap energy deals – forever.
weflip is powered by our own Energylinx comparison platform, triggering a transfer to a cheaper energy tariff whenever savings of more than £50 per year, after exit fees, can be made.
For now, the service is focused on the domestic energy market, but it could be extended to multiple other verticals.
Savers seek each month
On average over 250,000 people in the UK switch their energy supplier or tariff every month.
Market surveys conclude 23% of people in the UK remain with their energy supplier because they feel it is too much hassle to change.

The GoFurther Academy is comprised of four key areas: internships, graduate schemes, apprenticeships and work placements and experience. Each area offers the opportunity to learn and grow as a professional while working on real business value-add projects.
The GoFurther Academy was designed to solve an issue that every business faces: how to ensure that we have a continual and sustainable talent stream for the mid to long term future.
Conventional talent pipelining and recruitment methods only go so far and offer limited assurance when factoring in the competition for talent.
We recognised as a Group that if we want to be confident in the skills available to us in the future, we would have to develop it ourselves through a blend of different education and placement opportunities.
