Senior Copywriter in London, UK 🌎

Looking for: Copywriter
Budget: Negotiable

We’re looking for an experienced freelance writer to join the OVO team.

About us
We’re a different kind of energy company. Not at all like the big corporates. We’re all about clever tech that makes people’s lives easier. And awesome customer service that wins award after award. We’re the good guys. The ones who are trying to change things for the better. We’ve gained over 800,000 happy customers and created our own charitable foundation, in only eight years. And we’re not stopping there. We want to change the world. Well, at least when it comes to energy.

This all means that we don’t talk like any old energy supplier. In fact, we write how we speak – like actual humans.

If you’re known for your natural writing style, smart editing, and relaxed approach to managing people, you could be just who we’re looking for.
