Roles at Oxford Instruments


We place our customers’ needs at the heart of everything we do. Working with our commercial and operations colleagues, we develop prototypes that can quickly be brought to market. Together, we’re pioneering new imaging techniques, developing advanced manufacturing and mastering materials at the atomic level. Our technical teams are the people behind products which are widely acknowledged to be the most innovative and best in their fields. In fact, many of our staff are world experts and regularly invited to deliver lectures at conferences and universities around the world.


Our customers are making the breakthroughs that keep them at the front of their fields. Together, we offer them the tools they need to increase efficiency and precision, so that they can focus on what they do best. Our operations teams are made up of skilled professionals working across a range of production and supply chain roles. We work closely with our technical and commercial colleagues to ensure that our high-tech products are built to spec, manufacturing standards remain high and our instruments are the best on the market.


We focus on the ultimate reasons our customers are buying our products or services. That’s why we recently adopted an approach called ‘jobs to be done’, or JTBD for short, to keep this way of thinking front of mind. As product managers, marketing and communications specialists, and sales and service teams, we build successful relationships with our customers, understand their JTBD and then make sure we develop innovative solutions that meet their needs.


While we aren’t inventing new technologies ourselves, in business roles our job is to help everyone else to do what they do best. Our expertise spans finance, HR, IT, legal, facilities and administration. Whether our background is in science and engineering or not, we all enjoy working for company which is building tools and instruments that have such an impact on the world. We’re a small enough company to each have a broad range of responsibilities and really see the impact of our work, but big enough that we can partner with teams of like-minded professionals, share experiences and ideas, and continually learn from each other.
