Graduate Careers

Our graduates have all the skills they need to apply for any role in any business.

Often our students will be applying for the same jobs as university graduates, and yet their CVs will stand out and be seen above those with just academic qualifications. The job market is intensely competitive and employers are looking for those people who have the skills they need from day one.  They do not have the time or budget to train new staff in anything other than the job-specific skills required to do the job. Colleagues hugely welcome a new member of the team who can “hit the ground running” from day one.

“An OMBS student is the ideal candidate for Tiger Recruitment. The practical course fully equips OMBS grads for a business support role, giving them both the hard and soft skills required to succeed. An expert in Microsoft tools, a forward-thinking mindset and an excellent eye for detail make OMBS-qualified grads fantastic employees for top employers of choice.”

Tiger Recruitment

During the diploma students begin to get an idea of which business sectors they might be interested in and which jobs they might like to do. They spend a significant amount of time honing their interview skills and are able to approach each interview feeling capable and confident.

Here we show just a snapshot of the business sectors our graduates enter. Each business will approach roles in individual ways and subsequently job titles are often interchangeable.

In 2023 just some of the businesses our graduates secured roles in were Savills, the Bremont Watch Company, John D Wood, Hakluyt & Company, Strutt & Parker, Ralph Lauren, The Wedding Present Company and Timbuktu Travel.

How much can I expect to earn after graduating?

The question we hear the most often from prospective students! Salaries will vary across sector and businesses but we’ll let Claire Gray, Director of London based boutique recruitment specialists Bain and Gray explain more here…

“We have seen a marked increase in the starting salary of OMBS graduates and whilst this varies across industry, entry level roles command salaries of no less than £25,000 going up to as much as £30,000 in the financial services market for example. We continue to monitor the junior end of the market salary by benchmarking every 6 months. The results of which can be seen with our salary survey and market insights here at
