    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO


    The leadership team has improved drastically over the past couple of years. This has made the organisation feel positively different. They are an extremely family friendly and supportive organisation. Training and development was great and supports career development.


    Opportunities are few and far between. Many employees have been working in the same position for many years which makes it very difficult to break into a similar role.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the strategy and continue to build a workforce to deliver that strategy. Implement better succession planning and focus on being more commercial and less civil service.

If you don't know your Charing Cross from your Loch Lomond, then it's time you get to know Ordnance Survey, Great Britain's national mapping agency. Ordnance Survey provides current and historical maps and digital geographical information used by government entities, utilities, insurers, emergency services, property developers, and others. Ordnance Survey, which was established in 1791, is part of the UK government; however, it covers its own operating costs by selling its products and services or licensing its copyrighted material to others for use.
