Programme Innovation Executive

OVO Foundation

Salary Competitive

Application deadline 26 May 2017

This new role sits within OVO Foundation, which is OVO Energy's charitable arm. OVO Foundation has been up and running since 2014 and we’ve developed a few key projects that we're really proud of across three areas that really mean something to us: youth poverty, education and energy access.

We're not the same as many other Foundations because we don't accept grant applications. Instead, we do our own research into big social issues and then work with relevant partners to create and deliver innovative solutions to the problem. We prefer to develop fewer and more targeted interventions to have a radical impact on people's lives, rather than fund lots of smaller projects. Our Future Builders project is a good example of how we work and development things from scratch, and as well as having a really positive impact on the lives of young people, it’s been nominated for a couple of awards too. 

We've had a really great year in getting some new initiatives off the ground; as well as launching Future Builders, we've created partnerships with two primary schools in Bristol and have also designed and delivered ‘OVO Gives Back’ -- a brand new community giving and volunteering scheme.
