Where in the world of the OVO Group will I be working?
Founded in 2009, OVO’s vision is to look beyond the traditional energy retail model and build a group of innovative companies that harness technology to unlock long term value for customers, and ultimately fuel human progress by providing abundant clean energy for everyone. We have grown exponentially and today the OVO Group has approx 1,000,000 customers.
Central to the realisation of our vision is the transition from pure energy retail to asset backed service provision. As part of this strategy we are building capability in new areas, through organic and inorganic means. We see three business streams as being key to our future ambitions and as such we are shaping our organisational structure around these:
1. Energy Retail: Owns the relationship with energy customers via a number of brands which look after customer research, proposition development, cross sales to energy customers and digital customer experience. These brands are supported by a number of platforms, including Trading and Settlements and off line Customer Services teams
1. Energy Technical Products: Manage energy asset strategy - including Electric Vehicles and Energy Storage - and developing partnerships and customer propositions in conjunction with Energy Retail and other partners. Supported by vNET platform (formally V Charge a recent acquisition)
1. Domestic Engineering: Owns the relationship with service customers and engineers - primarily via the CORGI brand - looking after the customer research and proposition development for installation, maintenance and insurance of smart home products such as smart boilers, thermostats, heating systems and smart meters. Supported by a network of over 5,000 engineers.
In May 2017, OVO Group acquired two businesses - CORGI HomePlan and CORGI HomeHeat. The CORGI HomePlan business provides home services insurance and maintenance (including boiler central heating, plumbing, drains and electrics) to approx 160,000 customers in the UK, whilst CORGI HomeHeat has just been established a digital route to market for boiler and smart home product sales.
The team of 110 in head office provide management, services and support whilst the associated network of over 5,000 Gas Safe registered engineers are available 24/7 for emergency cover as well as routine servicing of home services.
