Fancy a Job?

At Oakland, we are building a company we can all be proud of, but to make this happen, we need brilliant people.

  • What Makes Oakland Different?

    • We have a long history but a tech start-up mentality. So we’re small enough for you to make your mark and make a difference as we grow
    • We’re proud to be one of Best Companies top 100 small businesses to work for
    • We are tech agnostic and work with a diverse range of tech, so there is always something to learn, and you can learn from some of the best in the business

    We need people who are dedicated to delivering ingenious solutions which solve our clients’ most challenging problems. We’re always looking for brilliant people to join the team. Our current vacancies are listed below but if you’d really like to work for us then drop us your CV at joinus@theoaklandgroup.co.uk with a covering letter and we’ll see if we can make it happen.

    Values

    Our values aren’t just marketing fluff and catchy soundbites. They guide us and reflect who we are and how we do things. To decide what our values should be, we focused on what makes Oakland unique. The closer we looked, we discovered common attitudes, qualities, and traits despite our different personalities and backgrounds. We thought, what if we could bottle and share these? So that is precisely what we did.

    We are:

    Passionate • Curious • Tenacious • Principled • Technically Excellent

    It’s more than a job

    We like to think of Oakland as a family (maybe a bit dysfunctional but a family nevertheless), and we actively encourage teams to get together as often as possible. We’ve held away days, beer tastings, board game nights fueled by beer and pizza, and we’ve even got a Strava Group to try and encourage us to get fit. You think of the idea and we’ll make it happen* (*within reason of course)

    Giving Back

    We all have a cause that is particularly close to our hearts, so with the Oakland giving back scheme, you choose the charity and activity, and we’ll double the contribution. We also run team events like the Macmillan Big Coffee morning to raise money together, and we’re always looking for new challenges.
