Tell me about CORGI HomePlan….
Since 2011 we’ve been providing boiler, central heating, plumbing, drains and electric cover to our customers and we’re not done yet! With 150,000 customers - and growing – we’re here to challenge the status quo (the big 6) and provide better quality and pricing of home plan cover to consumers across the UK.
In May 2017 we became part of the OVO group, and began a new and exciting journey with lots of great opportunities for our staff, trade network and customers. We believe in simplicity, transparency and treating people and the planet fairly, we also believe that attracting and keeping the best talent is key to our bright future, so that’s why our people will always get a chance to share in our success.
OVO is a proud, challenger brand that never settles for second best. It’s in the business of building a different kind of Energy Company, one where not only its customers benefit from better service and opportunity but its people do too. They believe that attracting and retaining the best talent is key to a bright future, so that’s why their people will always get a chance to share in their success. OVO were ranked 20th in the Sunday Times Top 100 Employers in 2017.
