Ways of working at OS

We embrace a varied working model at OS, as we understand there is no one-size-fits-all model in relation to how we work. Your role in OS will determine how and where you will be based, and the amount of time you will be required to spend in the office. We’ll always be clear in job adverts and throughout the recruitment process. These are the general categories outlined in our job descriptions:

A rich history of innovation

At every step in our journey, we’ve pioneered cutting-edge technology and led the way with world-leading geospatial know-how.

In 1747 William Roy, an innovative young engineer at the start of his career, was tasked with creating a military map of Scotland. But he had a bigger vision: to survey and map the whole of Britain.

Roy’s determination and ingenuity paved the way for modern surveying and thanks to his vision thousands of surveyors mapped every corner of Britain with pinpoint accuracy.

Nearly 230 years later, we still approach our work with the same spirit of adventure and dedication to accuracy that William Roy pioneered.
