Our values

We aim to create a diverse, high-performing team and be a great place to work, where employees are supported to develop their capability, in an organisation with simple processes and systems.

Our values and behaviours are at the heart of everything we do. Created by our people, they guide how we act and how we expect to be treated, providing a sound basis for decisions.




In our work we are humble, honest and straightforward. We are open and evidence-based in our analysis, consistent, proportionate and equitable in our decisions


We are clear in our role as the OGA and as individuals. We do what we say, focusing on the right things. We take the necessary actions to deliver our commitments on time and support others to deliver theirs


We are a respectful and open-minded organisation that supports collaboration and engenders trust. We seek to understand the perspectives and views of others, and ensure that our actions are reasonable and responsible


We act with a clear intention in our behaviours, communication and purpose. We champion MER UK, holding ourselves and others to account in a manner that is strong, impartial, accurate and defendable
