Computer services group initiates national recruitment drive to exceed 350 employees following site refurbishment

After a record 12 months due to several new multi-year contract wins and record growth of its workforce, OGL Group has reached a real milestone with 300 staff members across its London and Midland office locations.

The computer services group is well on the way to exceeding its target of 350 staff by the year-end having already seen 20 new recruits joining its workforce in the first quarter of 2022.

The OGL Group’s cyber security arm, CyberGuard Technologies, has attracted talent from across the UK, and grew its team by 20 per cent in the last three months with plans to expand by a further 50 per cent by the end of 2022.

Increased investment in cyber security by organisations within manufacturing, financial services, building societies and NHS trusts, is driving demand for CyberGuard’s services due to their reputation as a leading MSSP in these industries.

Sean Tickle, head of CyberGuard, commented: “The fast pace of the industry, and the ever-evolving technologies being adopted by CyberGuard, is what is really attracting people to us as they want to build their career within a thriving and successful business. And the backgrounds of our new recruits are also varied and interesting.”

Thanks to its reputation as a local business that places a real emphasis on providing career progression opportunities, many of OGL Group’s current employees are long service team members. From a workforce of over 300, almost 80 have been with the company for more than 10 years.

In order to accommodate its expanding team, OGL Group has recently undertaken a major development and refurbishment project at its headquarters which is almost complete.

Debbie Barton, chief operating officer, said: “We are just putting the finishing touches to areas such as our gardens, which now form a central feature at the site and will be a great space for our staff to relax and take time out.

“We are generating lots of job opportunities for both experienced professionals but also those wanting to join the industry, either from school or college at entry-level, through to someone looking for a career change into IT.”
