Life at OVO

Hello there! Up for the grand tour?

Find out all you need to know about working for us – from life at OVO, rewards, benefits and learning - to where you can find our lovely UK offices as well as links to some of our blogs.

While many of us may be working from home at the moment, there's still lots discover about what's on offer at OVO.

Passion has its perks

Doing your bit for the planet and our customers is rewarding in itself. But there are plenty of other advantages to working at OVO.

We aspire to the extraordinary

And it starts with our purpose, Plan Zero. We’re creating a place where people love to work. A place where everyone belongs. Full of incredible world changers all working together to make zero carbon a reality. Doing your bit for the planet and our customers is rewarding in itself. But there are plenty of other advantages to working here at OVO.

Work with the best

We attract brilliant people who solve big problems together. These people think big, work hard, act quickly. And understand the importance of teamwork. 

Join our zero carbon movement

We want everyone to feel a sense of belonging here as part of our movement. Our inclusion and diversity network groups are led by our people for our people. Each year we celebrate Plan Zero and the work we’re all doing to bring zero carbon to life. Trees - there’s so much we can say about these - we love them and plant one every year for our colleagues (and our customers!) 

The OVO Way of Working

We want OVO to be a place where you can invest in your career while balancing other aspects of your life. That’s why we’ve introduced a set of principles (the OVO Way of Working) that give our people choice around when and where they work on a day to day basis, wherever possible. Most of our community work in a fluid way, others have this more formalised within their contract - it’s up to you. You can read more by downloading our OVO Way of Working PDF.

Advance your career

From personal development, to line manager support. We raise the bar through developing smart people who push the boundaries of what’s possible. There’s plenty on offer under OVO Learn, come get involved.

So what’s the deal

Once you've passed probation, you'll be in line to pick up an annual bonus. You'll also benefit from our pension scheme consisting of a matched employer contribution of 5% of your salary, and we’ll chip in an extra 4% of your basic salary towards a holiday, computer, bicycle, health plan, ISA saving and much more. With 25 days holiday plus a day off each year for your birthday, what isn’t to like?!

Food glorious food

Each office serves up a range of tasty free treats. You could be in line for free snacks, fruit, breakfasts and even Friday lunches.

Full transparency and collaboration

We believe in working together to achieve our vision. That's why we've partnered with Just3Things to help us share our objectives. Everyone can see what everyone else is working on, and how we all contribute together. This makes it really easy to collaborate, find information and ask questions. The Just3Things OKR software made such a difference to us that the team behind it now make it available to other companies, such as Deloitte and the NHS.

Enjoy a range of fantastic spaces

All of our UK offices have a relaxed, homely feel, with plenty of breakout areas and chill-out sofas. Bristol even has a treehouse – so naturally, it was named one of the UK’s coolest office spaces in 2018.
