At OVO, we understand that a one size fits all approach doesn't work for everyone. That's why we created the OVO Way of Flexibility.

All our roles are hub based (Bristol, Glasgow or London), providing a dedicated space for collaboration, connection and teamwork. You'll also have the flexibility to work from home.

At OVO, we are on a mission to solve one of humanity's biggest challenges, the climate crisis. And we know it takes all of us to change the world. That's why we need diverse people from all abilities, gender identities, ethnicities, ages, sexual orientations, life experiences and backgrounds to join us.

Everything we do here spins around Plan Zero. So, naturally, the team you'll be joining plays a gigantic role in making that happen. Here's how:

We've made good progress on the UK's path to net zero. But we can do better. Research shows that 100% renewable energy tariffs aren't actually making the grid greener. We have to go further. We need to save energy, use power at smarter times of the day and look at other ways to help our customers reduce their carbon footprint.

That's where our Zero Carbon Living (ZCL) business comes in. To become the UK's decarbonisation partner, ZCL will be the key driver in everything we do over and above our energy offer.

We're forming, incubating and growing new ideas that will change the way our customers consume energy. We'll look at everything on their decarbonisation journey - from home and heating, to transport, solar and battery. We'll work like a start up - using our entrepreneurial, OVO Way spirit to drive us forward. And we'll be flexible about how we do it - trying new things, growing the ones that work and learning new, green skills as we go.

Your key outcomes will be

  • ZCL customer growth - driving leads and sales across internal CRM channels (existing customers cross sell) and wider performance marketing channels and our own ZCL growth channels (new customers)
  • Create the enduring go to market strategy for ZCL. We're growing at pace and need to create the right conditions, operating model and ways of working between our ZCL Commercial leads, Product team and our established marketing channels SMEs.
  • Build and inspire the team. We have amazing Product Marketing Leads and Executives across our energy transition Drive and Home propositions. We need to create the right team structure and expertise as we 10x our sales.
  • Work with our ZCL Commercial leads to develop our GTM strategies. Lead on the definition, execution and iteration of our product marketing strategies for our new ZCL products - EV products (Charge Anytime, Bonnet and EV Charger installs) and our Home products (Solar/Battery, heat pumps, Energy Experts and Smart Thermostats).
  • Create the streamlined briefing process that keeps all our team members engaged and aligned
  • Oversee and lead the Product Marketing Leads and their marketing executives, across our Drive and Home ZCL products
  • Work with our Commercial growth channel SMEs to create the growth channel plans that underpin our bold ZCL sales targets - and then create the performance management, high-challenge and high support culture to help us achieve those targets.
  • Work closely with our growth channels leads, product and tech to optimise our sales funnels to deliver optimal customer experience.
  • Own our overall ZCL marketing strategy, prioritising resources and campaigns to ensure our individual products are sensibly represented and customer contact is appropriate
  • Work with our commercial growth SMEs on optimising CAC across our growth channels to deliver the optimal commercial outcomes
  • Drive a culture of SEO and performance marketing excellence across ZCL Commercial leads, product and tech teams.
  • Work closely with our ZCL and Commercial leadership teams to ensure alignment and establish fit for purpose ways of working
  • Establish strong relationships with cross-functional groups across the business to support growth of ZCL e.g. Brand colleagues, Data, Product and Tech etc.

You'll be a successful Head of ZCL Growth at OVO if you…

  • Like to hit daring targets in a high growth team
  • Like to create important growth metrics and measure success
  • React rapidly to competitor and market dynamics
  • Like to take a product centric approach and iterate
  • Experience in marketing both expensive (£10k) hardware installations and cheaper subscription type services
  • Can demonstrate previous experience in getting results across multiple growth channels - especially internal CRM, paid social, search and SEO
  • Have a robust experience in digital customer journey optimisation (full funnel)
  • Have experience working with leading agencies
  • Are comfortable working in startup mode - ambiguity, pace… and can hustle a route to market through multiple interested partners
  • Are obsessed with supporting our customers' decarbonisation journey and have a real passion for our home energy decarbonisation mission and delivering the UK's transition to Net Zero.
  • Can articulately communicate the benefits of sophisticated decarbonisation hardware to our customers
  • Can lead and empower strong marketing executives and leads
  • Have experience in working with product and commercial teams in building propositions that resonate with customers and can scale
