CORGI HomePlan’s Incredible Growth

We are a successful Insurance company, aiming to become a leading InsurTech for energy insurance and installation of carbon saving products.  In our 10 years of existence, we acquired 180,000 customers and are continuing to grow!  We challenge the status quo and strive to provide better quality and pricing of home plan cover to consumers across the UK.

In 2017, CORGI HomePlan became part of the OVO family and began an exciting new journey with lots of opportunities.  We are very ambitious – and we grow by innovating!  The potential is huge: we can provide brilliant products and services to OVO’s 5-million customer base.

We believe in simplicity, transparency and treating people and the planet fairly.  But we also believe that attracting and keeping the best talent is key to our bright future, so that’s why we empower our people and always offer them the chance to share in our success.

Recruitment and daily work during lockdown?

Although we miss the Haymarket office, we adjusted well to working fully remotely.  All our departments transitioned smoothly to working from home without impacting our customers, that we continue to serve fully.

We run the interview process on Hangouts and all onboarding can be done remotely.  You’ll get the chance to speak to several team members, so you can be comfortable you’re making the right choice.  And once you’ve joined us, you’ll get a chance to meet everyone around a virtual coffee in the daily breaks, every Friday for a virtual Beer O’Clock or in one of our other virtual socials.

Where in the world of OVO will I be working?

CORGI HomePlan is at a time of significant technological investment and growth. The current technology platform is undergoing a major overhaul as we build additional capabilities and features from the ground up.  Our ambition is to build the next generation of insurance platform, that is at the forefront of user experience, creating best-in-class journeys for both our customers and our staff.
