OCS to recruit 900 apprentices with new scheme

06 April 2017

As part of National Apprenticeship Week, OCS today announces that it is launching a new apprenticeship programme in the UK which will aim to recruit up to 900 apprentices in its first year.

From 6 April 2017, the scheme will offer apprenticeships in a range of operational FM, management and business support functions including ICT and HR.

Open to both new and existing OCS colleagues, the programme will offer vocational learning through local training providers and further education colleges, and leadership development to degree level, providing multiple pathways for individuals to progress their career.

A series of roles across all service lines and functions will be advertised on the OCS website,, throughout the year.

The launch of the scheme is part of a renewed focus on training and development within the organisation following the appointment of CEO Peter Slator in December 2015.

Stuart Rowberry, Resourcing and Development Business Partner, at OCS, who will be responsible for leading the scheme, said: ‘The forthcoming apprenticeship levy provides the opportunity for us to implement a development programme which delivers for our people, our customers and OCS.

'Apprenticeships will allow us to attract and retain the best talent through a focus on supporting their careers while equipping our workforce with the skills needed to best support our customers and the strategic growth of OCS in the coming years.’
