Frequently asked questions

I am a candidate with a disability. Can you accommodate my needs during the application and assessment process?
We are committed to making the recruitment process accessible. We can provide application forms in an alternative format, or make adjustments to the recruitment process such as arranging for the interview to be conducted in a different format. Please indicate any specific requirements in the application form or contact HR on +44(0)1865 253 000 if you require the application form in an alternative format.
 
Will Oxera apply for a work permit for me?

Please note that we are not able to sponsor visas for internships.
