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:

Our team looks across OVO’s portfolio of energy products, including our innovative offerings that help customers achieve net zero.

We make sure that, wherever estimation or judgement is required, our customer outcomes are as accurate as possible, demonstrating that our customers can trust us with their energy. Where we spot issues or misalignment between our revenues and our costs, we work to rectify this for our customers and to secure OVO's financial position.
