Creative Studio Project Manager - Experience Migration (FTC)

Location - London / Bristol

6 month FTC

We launched in 2009 with a mission to change energy for the better. Since then, we’ve welcomed over a million members, planted a million trees, and set our sights on helping save the planet.

As a Group, we’re working to become a net zero carbon business by 2030, while helping our OVO Energy members halve their carbon footprints at the same time.

Green energy and technology are great tools to fight the climate crisis with. But it’s people power that will rewrite history.

So we’re building a zero carbon team inside and out. Of people who share our values, feel inspired by our mission, and want to make change happen.

When you work for OVO, it’s not just a job. It’s the work of a lifetime. And we want the sharpest minds to help.
