OC&C's Commitment to Widening Participation
At OC&C, we recognise that an individual's background does not limit their ability to be successful in consulting. Instead, it is the diversity of our teams that offer a broader range of perspectives and experiences, allowing us to reach a stronger, more well-rounded answer for our clients. That is why we are committed to ensuring individuals from all backgrounds have an equal opportunity to be successful at OC&C.
We believe that performance is relative and, in partnership with Performance in Context (PiC), have implemented procedures to identify individuals that have been successful in comparatively challenging circumstances – ensuring they are assessed on their true performance and ability.
We know there is always more that can be done for social mobility, which is why beyond our internal policies, we continue to support charities such as IntoUniversity with pro bono consulting and mentoring, and work with SEO to provide students with an insight into consulting.
OC&C is a meritocracy. Success isn’t determined by where you’ve come from or where you started, we care about maximising your potential.
We don’t care about where you’ve come from or where you started, we care about maximising your potential
