All OGA jobs are currently advertised on the Civil Service Jobs board.

Our values

Recruitment into the OGA is underpinned by three key principles. Therefore, appointments will be made on the following basis:

  • The OGA will seek to recruit and develop the talent it needs to fulfil our duties to the industry and as a UK Public Body. We will focus our recruitment approach targeting internal or external markets as appropriate.
  • We are committed to recruiting in line with our values, legislation and best practice. We believe that a truly diverse workforce is crucial for the OGA, and work to ensure any barriers to genuinely open and fair selection are removed.
  • As part of our commitment to developing internal talent, and ensuring succession capability, we will by exception utilise managed moves.

Important notice

The OGA has a very open, transparent and fair recruitment process.  All direct contact with prospective candidates is made from legitimate "" email addresses and telephone numbers. We do not use unsolicited emails to ask potential employees for personal details.

Please also be aware that we would NEVER ask for payment for an offer of employment or as any part of our recruitment process.
