Why OCS?

When we’re doing a great job, you’re probably not aware of us, but you’re more than likely to see our work in the course of at least one part of your day.

We’re in a lot more places than you might think. If you’re out shopping we may have already counted the stock that you buy, if you’re enjoying London’s Royal Parks, then we will have planted some of the thousands of bulbs and plants you see, if you’re in education we may well be providing ‘food for thought’ in our range of catering outlets.

However, we never forget our roots, so that particularly clean building with the sparkling windows is probably down to some of our amazing teams who take such pride in their work.

You might wonder what kind of people work for OCS. Well, the short answer is - all kinds.  We value having a workforce that is diverse in knowledge and experience as it means that our clients benefit too.

Talking of diversity, it is important to us that we adhere to an Equal Opportunities policy and work with the Employers Forum for Disability to make sure we get the very best people from all walks of life.

Keeping our People Safe

Providing a safe working environment for all our people, and for those that are affected by what we do, is our first priority and fundamental to our wider corporate responsibilities. Our commitment to being a recognised leader in health and safety is an integral part of our strategy for growth.

We promote global standards through the work of a health and safety best practice group. This group drives direct engagement, consistency and encourages communication as we strive to improve health and safety at work in all the countries in which we operate. We recognise that we need to respect and understand different cultures and that we must work together to drive consistent high standards of safety.

We believe in ethical working practices, looking after each other and maintaining the family values which have made us the success we are today. As a family-owned business, we really appreciate that our people are at the heart of that success. To ensure that we attract and retain the best, we offer fair and competitive reward packages and a range of non-financial benefits. In addition, our Employees Choices package gives our staff the opportunity to make savings too.
