OVO is seeking a qualified lawyer with 4 - 6 years’ PQE with training gained from a reputable firm, together with significant experience in a strong in-house team within a consumer business.

The role

This is a wide-ranging role for a bright, motivated and ambitious lawyer to grow and thrive in a company that is leading the way in energy transformation through innovation and disruption.

You will be working across OVO’s business at all levels to provide a broad range of commercial legal advice. You will primarily support our retail product and marketing teams in relation to all proposition development, advertising, marketing, sales promotions, and customer offers across all of our brands. This will involve drafting terms of supply for our energy and tech products, advising on advertising and marketing campaigns, and leading on GDPR advice to build compliant processes. You will also work on developing contracts with our corporate partners for innovative ventures.

Tell me about Ovo…

OVO’s vision is to deliver clean, abundant energy for everyone. We started out as a retail energy company with a belief that we could do energy better through fairer pricing, simplicity and unrivalled customer service. As we evolved it became clear that OVO could bring even more value to its customers, transitioning to a smart services company that would develop innovations in energy technology and propositions.

In the last two years we have made several acquisitions which enable us to offer grid balancing services, smart electric heat, vehicle to grid charging and exciting propositions for electric vehicles, in-home insurance and distributed storage systems.

All of this allows us to bring cheap, low carbon energy to our customers to power their lives, support the integration of more renewables onto the grid, and help balance the grid during peak times.

We are not a company driven simply by short term returns and profit, we believe in our responsibility to society and to the environment, and are determined that our business strategy and company behaviour reflects this commitment.
