About Ordnance Survey

A career at Ordnance Survey will surprise you. We’re Britain’s mapping agency and a big data powerhouse. Our geospatial data is weaving itself into over 60 million everyday lives all across the country. It underpins £100 billion of the nation’s economy – helping everything from crime fighting to conservation, mobile phone performance to multi-million pound marketing. There really is nobody like us.

Our graduate scheme

Join OS and you’ll be developing skills and experience in areas like machine learning, data analytics, and cyber security. We’re a data business – 90% of our revenue comes from our digital solutions so you’ll design and make products and services our customers want to use. You’ll work in an Agile environment where we are passionate about continuous improvement and enhancing what we do and how we do it. And throughout your graduate scheme we’ll help you to shape your career in areas of our business like:

  • Data & GI architecture;
  • Data management and analytics;
  • Product and GI software engineering; or
  • Cyber security

You’ll have the opportunity to get involved from day one in what we do – we think that’s more important that sitting in training courses when you start. We’ll learn about you during the application process just as much as you can learn about us.

Escape the obvious - join OS.
