Internal Auditor – Metering Governance & Assurance

Location: Flexible

The OVO Group’s purpose is to drive progress towards net zero carbon living. To reach Plan Zero, we need everyone to come together – not just as customers buying energy, but as members with a common goal. As part of this ambitious plan, our goal is to become the ‘Best Employer in the UK’ by 2030. If you think you could be the talent we’re looking for, then come and join the adventure!

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.

Up for the challenge?

 

Where in the world of OVO will I be working? 

Founded in 2009, OVO was established with the clear vision of building an energy business centred around delivering simple, sustainable customer propositions with great customer service, underpinned by a strong technology ethos that is central to everything we do.

Through this growth OVO has expanded the OVO Team across multiple locations, launched our own Field Force, and acquired some exciting businesses, including SSE Retail, each with their own office, field and manufacturing operations.
