OVO Energy is leading a new generation of energy providers with a fresh outlook and a unique way of doing business. We’re always looking for ways to improve the world of energy and we have recently acquired VCharge, a game-changing technology business which is transforming the future of the electric grid.

VCharge has developed a unique solution for UK householders with storage heaters. This technology gives customers with storage heaters more control, greater comfort and lower bills, whilst at the same time using the 'storage' in the heaters to provide services to the National Grid and others which help to incorporate renewable energy on the grid.

To support this fantastic newly launched product, we are now seeking a Project Manager to join the VCharge team.

As Project Manager, you will:
