Where in the world of OVO will I be working and what will I be doing?

As a Data Analyst at OVO Energy you’ll play a key role in achieving our vision of creating clean, affordable energy for everyone.

The energy industry has changed a lot in recent years, and we don’t expect that to stop any time soon. OVO Energy is changing too - we’re more than just an energy supplier, we’re leading the way in showing our customers the energy world of tomorrow. By creating innovative technology we’re helping customers manage their energy better, decrease their bills and drive their electric vehicles further - all whilst improving our planet for generations to come.

Data is the foundation of everything we do at OVO, and to deliver our vision we need curious, tenacious people who can turn this data, and their knowledge, into strategy and actions.

We have various Data Analyst opportunities across the business; these teams include Finance, Commercial, Operations, Regulation & Compliance and Customer Services.

Depending on what team you’re in, you will:

- Develop and implement user friendly reports which support performance analysis & decision making
- Commercial modelling, creating cost/benefit analysis of proposed actions and outcomes based on a consistent value model
- Design and deliver robust automated processes which ingest third party data for commercial or operational use
- Use your data skills to make data available to stakeholders who need it, and use these tasks as an opportunity to proactively identify use cases for self serve data access
- Devise processes and systems which allow for better self serve data access for stakeholders, leading to higher data management maturity and more opportunities for automation and innovation
- Work with data scientists embedded within your team or function to create value-add processes which improve operational efficiency and quality, and / or features which delight our customers
- Promote ethical best practise in the way all data is used and processed, always ensuring compliance and security is placed first

Our statement on diversity

Diverse teams are the best teams, and we value equal opportunity: the more inclusive we are the better our work will be. Research shows us that some people may not apply to jobs unless they tick every box. And we know 'normal' office hours don't work for everyone, so we're very open to discussing flexible working requests. If you're excited about working with us and think you have much of what we're looking for, even if you're not 100% sure… we'd love to hear from you.

We want to build teams which represent a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills, and we hire on the basis of merit and potential. So get in touch, ask lots of questions. And good luck!

That sounds super exciting, but… Do I have what it takes?
