We have close links with recruitment agencies in Oxford and London.
We have long associations with exclusive independent agencies who really value our students who each graduate with a powerful CV. With these advanced skills our partners are happy to put them forward to their best clients within any business sector knowing that they will be confident and capable to tackle any support role. Each agency visits the College in the first few weeks of the course, help with our Work Experience Programme and interview the students when they are looking to start work.
Claire Gray – Bain and Gray
Emily Bain and I have had a strong link with OMBS for over 20 years, and are so proud to have been providing career advice, talks and work experience to their students ever since. Bain and Gray is 10 this year and has been building on our reputation as an extension of OMBS.
Many of our clients know and value OMBS students and ask for them as a benchmark for hiring. If it is a course they are not aware of we make a point of educating our clients about the course and the talent that it produces.
I think the College is very aware of constantly reviewing the course to align it to the changing needs of the market. It is always open to advice from us with regard to what our clients are looking for and how the work place is evolving. www.bainandgray.com
Pip Cox – Joyce Guiness Recruitment
“Here at Joyce Guiness we find the OMBS students of a very high calibre. They have had a very good grounding in office systems and IT. They know how to interview, have amazing skills and in fact the OMBS course is a name, a ”brand” that clients are asking for on CVs. When we visit the College each October the students are always fully prepped and have some good questions to ask about recruitment and the working world. We find them a joy to work with and welcome any OMBS students to our agency!” www.joyceguiness.co.uk
Di Anderson – Anderson Hoare Recruitment
“At Anderson Hoare we have been working with OMBS for a number of years and are continuously impressed by the professionalism and confidence of the students and how well prepared they are for the working world at their graduation. We have the pleasure to help many find their first jobs. Our experience has been that the students from OMBS are extremely placeable as they already have so many of the skills that most first jobbers will need to learn once they get to the office. A result of this is that many of our clients directly ask for OMBS students and the vast majority of the just-graduated students we help secure a job in the industry or role they want very quickly.” www.andersonhoare.co.uk
