Oxford Innovation Ltd (OI) was founded in 1987 by Sir Martin Wood, co-founder of Oxford Instruments PLC - providing services to both innovative growing companies and to government bodies that promote enterprise.
OI was created as a spin-off from The Oxford Trust -an independent charitable foundation that works to encourage the study and application of science and technology.
Oxford Innovation Services Ltd (OIS) was then created from OI in November 2011 as a separate company to deliver major business support and coaching contracts. These activities had formerly been carried out within OI. Therefore, in practice, the activity that is now carried out within OIS Ltd has a trading history dating back to 1992.
OI and OIS are both part of SQW Group, a leading provider of research, analysis and advice on sustainable economic and social development solutions to public and private organisations.
SQW Group Ltd was created in 2006 following the merger of SQW Ltd and Oxford Innovation Ltd. It acts as the holding company for the entire group. We work across the entire group on initiatives, drawing expertise from each other.
At OIS, we offer employees an opportunity to work with great people in a demanding and exciting environment with lots of opportunity for growth.
