Employer Testimonials

Barclays has recruited a number of ex-service personnel as a result of our partnership with the Officers Association Scotland (OAS). The OAS provides a seamless link for organisations like Barclays to the ex-forces talent pool; we work collaboratively around networking events, work experience placements, internships and military talent days. The OAS ensures that we have access to the top talent and candidates are always high calibre and well-prepared bringing high standard transferable skills such as resilience, leadership, risk & project management as well as their own high potential and a great cultural fit; indeed, 80% of our military hires have been promoted within 18 months of joining Barclays


I needed to find Systems Engineers for a major infrastructure project and was delighted when I met OA Scotland. Their hard work, professionalism and approach was second to none and has allowed me access to a vast network of engineers who under previous circumstances may not have applied directly. May the association between Jacobs Engineering and the Officers Association Scotland continue!


Since opening an FDM Academy in Glasgow, the OA Scotland have proved invaluable; providing high quality, suitable candidates for our dedicated Ex-Forces Programme. Two of these candidates have already started their FDM Project Manager roles on-site with a high-profile client in Edinburgh. We have a fantastic relationship with Heather, Tom and the Officer Association Scotland, and we hope that this will continue for years to come.
