With a sixty-year history, and fourteen Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, our world-class products and technologies are helping our customers to address the greatest challenges of the 21st century.


We know that recruiting and developing the best talent in our industry is fundamental to our success. As our Talent Acquisition and Development Manager, you will be a key member of our global HR team and your contribution will be vital to help us attract, motivate and retain the people we need, both now and for the future.


Working as the Group lead for recruitment globally, you will ensure we have world class systems, processes and capabilities to attract, select and onboard high-calibre technical and commercial talent across all of our business units.

In addition to helping us attract the talent we need, you will also support Group-wide succession planning and talent development activities such as our Early Careers Programme. This will involve working with the businesses to help identify high-potential employees for the programme, supporting their development during the programme and helping the businesses create and capitalise on opportunities to develop employee capabilities.


As well as a competitive starting salary, structured career development opportunities, and a good work-life balance, Oxford Instruments offers 25 days annual leave (rising to 26 after 3 years), half-days on Fridays, private healthcare, a share incentive plan, a defined contribution Group Personal Pension Plan, and a flexible benefits package that you can tailor to your own requirements.
