This role in 3 words: Creative, Organised, Dynamic

Top 3 qualities for this role: Meticulous, Diplomatic, Empathetic

In the words of the team, you should leave your current role for this one because….

“You’re after an exciting new challenge helping to manage and evolve one of the UK’s largest green energy companies at a crucial time for customers and the planet. We’re a small team that makes a big impact, and you’d play a key role in shaping the OVO brand.”

Where you’ll work:

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.

Everyone belongs at OVO

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.

Teamworking for the planet

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:

Our brand strategy & management team are responsible for creating the frameworks for our brand - think brand positioning, guidelines & brand toolkits. Ultimately helping the business work towards our common goal - making energy work for people and planet. We’re looking to bolster the support that we offer teams across the business. Helping them to understand and use the tools that we have and manage the creation of the assets that we don’t.

This role in a nutshell:

We’re looking for a Brand Executive to join our team as we cement and evolve our brand world. Over the last year we’ve launched and rolled out our revised visual identity, and we couldn't be prouder of it. Now the focus is on maintaining, evolving where needed - and making sure that teams have everything that they need.

This is a great opportunity for someone who is looking to progress and learn about managing a brand in a fast-paced and ever-evolving industry. Reporting into our wonderful Brand Manager, you’ll work cross functionally - regularly interfacing with our creative studio, other departments and our agency partners.

If you’ve been working agency side and are looking for a new challenge then this could be the perfect role for you. We’re looking for someone who’s got a strong eye for great design and a love of excellent copy to come and join the brand team here at OVO.

Your key outcomes will be:

Maintaining our Brand toolkit:

  • Briefing in new brand assets to our creative studio/external agency partners - think photoshoots, icons, illustrations and more.
  • Supporting on project management and timings for Brand projects like photo or video shoots or asset creation projects like illustration or iconography
  • Keeping our Digital Asset Management system up to date and making sure that we have the right assets available for teams to use

Brand Management:

  • Helping to train the business in all things brand
  • Leading on the organisation and planning of larger scale brand projects like Tone of Voice training and template roll out
  • Working with teams to understand what templates and guidance they’re missing or need
  • Supporting our brand management & review process, helping teams to understand what’s not on brand, why - and how they get there
  • Advocating for brand, getting teams across the business educated & excited about the impact that brand can have for their product area

Within your first 3 months month you’ll:

  • Become our brand expert - knowing our strategy, guidelines and tone of voice inside and out
  • Have started to establish yourself as the go-to for brand related questions and supply of assets
  • Be confident in giving brand related feedback & training
  • Be very familiar with OVO’s customer experience

You’ll be a successful Brand Executive here at OVO if you…

  • Have a passion for brand, branding and brand management as a tool for a successful business
  • Are ambitious and want to learn new skills and develop
  • Love a role where no two days are the same
  • Are empathetic and actively seek out other perspectives
  • Are confident speaking in front of large & small groups
  • Have a natural interest in production and design trends
  • Have experience building or managing brands, either from an agency or client side
  • Have a keen design eye. You’ll know why something doesn’t look right, and how to get it to where it needs to be
  • Have experience in creating or working on brand related content and communications. This could be at a brand or an agency.
  • Understand and have experience of project management, managing deadlines and stakeholder feedback across multiple streams of work
  • Are able to see the positive side of any situation, and bring others on that journey with you – a natural optimist
  • Have a particular affection for the colour green and an ability to find the interesting angle to everything
