What is OR?

A test of your creativity as well as your intellect

More than 25 Government departments and agencies rely on our OR Analysts to help them find solutions to complex management problems. Solutions vital to improving the quality of life for millions of people across the UK. But what is it that our OR Analysts actually do?

Simply put, Operational Research brings intellectual rigour to the decision-making process. By looking closely at complex systems, and developing models that predict the way they behave, our Analysts can bring a new perspective to the way problems are tackled.

For our people, solving the problem at hand is everything. They’re also able to work with colleagues in areas such as economics, statistics, social research and science.

Make the decision to join us, and you can expect a flow of projects that challenge your creativity as well as your intellect. These challenges will vary from project to project, and will often require close collaboration with your clients: senior people within the department and sometimes even government ministers.
