Your next OVO adventure

At OVO, we recognise that great people are already working with us across all of our brands. Find out more below about whether this role might be the next part of your OVO adventure.

You may not have all of the skills and experience boxes ticked, but if you think you have much of what we’re looking for, then we’d love to hear from you.

Teamworking for the planet

Everything we do here spins around Plan Zero. So, naturally, the team you’ll be joining plays a gigantic role in making that happen. Here’s how:

We’re hiring world-changers. From Zero Carbon Living Advisors to Product Managers, every role we’re hiring plays their own part in our mission; our role is to find those people and bring them on our Zero Carbon journey.

This role in a nutshell:

This role sits within the Operational CRM team developing direct to customer communications for schemes and zero carbon living customers. We’re part of OVO Group, a family of brands on a mission to drive progress towards zero carbon living.

At OVO Energy, we believe in putting the customer at the heart of everything we do. And the Operational CRM team is integral to demonstrating this approach with our customers. We’re here to ensure that all customers receive the service they deserve with engaging, jargon-free communications that demonstrate simplicity and expertise. We strive to ensure that our customers are always in the know with the right information at the right time.

What will I be doing?

As part of the Operational CRM team, you’ll report into the Communications Manager for schemes and zero carbon living - such as solar, electric vehicles, Energy Experts and heat pumps. You’ll develop customer communications and assist in the delivery of journeys for schemes and our zero carbon living customers. You’ll be responsible for ensuring that all communications clearly communicate key messages, abide by regulatory requirements and support our core brand beliefs. And you’ll help develop the strategies that support our business pillars. 

Your key outcomes will be:

  • Working closely with Studio, Brand, Programme Managers, Software Engineers, Legal and Compliance to promote best practices and implement compelling communication solutions
  • Delivering communications that are customer engaging while meeting business, regulatory, legal and compliance standards
  • Understanding Brand requirements and ensuring activity is executed within brand guidelines
  • Demonstrating an understanding for Compliance requirements within a regulatory environment
  • Presenting and sharing ideas expertly with stakeholders and leading the conversations
  • Maintaining and initiating improvements to robust processes and supporting controls
  • Managing multiple projects to deliver a range of communications concurrently
  • Inspiring teams across the business to consider customer-led communications 
  • Identifying potential improvements in customer journeys and recommending change.
  • Maintaining an audit trail of comms and associated changes as the single source of truth

You’ll be a successful Communication Executive here at OVO if you have…

We’re looking for a bright, versatile, energetic personality with a passion for bringing innovative communications to life for our customers. A self starter eager to understand our customers’ needs and stay ahead of the latest market developments. The ideal candidate will be adept at building collaborative relationships across a range of disciplines and stakeholders. The ability to cope with change in a fast moving environment, while working on a range of projects simultaneously, is essential.

We’re seeking a highly organised individual who has an eye for detail with excellent project management, communication and influencing skills. Someone who is flexible, able to work under pressure to tight deadlines and always willing to help a colleague out from time to time.

Ideally, you’ll have worked in a similar role within a regulatory environment.

Let’s talk about what’s in it for you

We’ll pay you between £29,900 and £46,640 depending on your specific skills and experience. If your expectations are a little different, have a chat with us!

We keep our pay ranges broad on purpose to give us, and you, flexibility to match your experience to our zero carbon mission.

You’ll be eligible for an on-target bonus of 15%. We have one OVO bonus plan that focuses on the collective performance of our people to deliver our Plan Zero goal. 

We also offer plenty of green benefits and progressive policies to help you feel like you belong at OVO…and there’s flex pay.  It’s an extra 9% of your salary on top of your core pay to use as you like. You can take it as cash, add to your pension, or choose to spend it on a huge range of flex benefits.

Here’s a taster of what’s on offer: 

For starters, you’ll get 34 days of holiday (including bank holidays).

For your health
With benefits like a healthcare cash plan or private medical insurance depending on your career level, critical illness cover, life assurance, health assessments, and more

For your wellbeing
With gym membership, gadget, travel and cyber insurance, workplace ISA, will writing services, DNA testing, dental insurance, and more

For your lifestyle
With extra holiday buying, discount dining, culture cards, tech loans, and supporting your favourite charities with give-as-you-earn donations

For your home 
Get up to £300 off any OVO Energy plan (when you pay by Direct Debit), plus personal carbon offsetting and great discounts on smart thermostats and EV chargers

For your commute
Nab a great deal on ultra-low emission car leasing, plus our cycle to work scheme and public transport season ticket loans

Want to hear about our full range of flexible benefits and progressive people policies? Our People Team can tell you everything you need to know.

For your Belonging

To find better ways to support our people, we need to listen to each other’s experiences and find ways to build a truly inclusive and diverse workplace. As part of this, we have 8 Belonging Networks at OVO. Led by our people, for our people - so when you join OVO, you can play a part - big or small - with any of the Networks. It's up to you.

Oh, and one last thing...

We’d be thrilled if you tick off all our boxes yet we also believe it’s just as important we tick off all of yours. And if you think you have most of what we’re looking for but not every single thing, go ahead and hit apply. We’d still love to hear from you! If you have any additional requirements, there’s a space to let us know on the application form; we want to make the process as easy and comfortable for you as possible..
