What our team think about working with the ODI
Oliver Sisman – OpenActive Engagement Consultant:
I love working at the ODI because there are so many opportunities to learn whilst at work, from all of the different projects the ODI are working on, to the Friday lunchtime lectures
Charlotte Mitchell – Delivery Manager:
The ODI is the most people-centric place I have ever worked, staff wellbeing is a real priority and there are many ways that this is manifested across the company. People genuinely care about each other and the work that they do and this makes for a very special and unique working environment
Emma Thwaites – Director of Publishing, Engagement and Communication:
The great team, the chance to work on inspiring projects and the commitment to communicating meaningfully and clearly
Aaron Damoa – Business Administration Apprentice:
I love working at the ODI because of the bubbly and fun environment to work within. Although I am the youngest amongst my colleagues they still treat me as an adult and always include me in any activities that may occur
Amiee Winney – HR Manager:
I love working for the ODI due to the people. I joined the organisation at a testing time, (during COVID 19) and feel that the team have supported and looked out for one another and done it all with a sense of humour, which is needed! I also love that I am able to share ideas and I feel these are listened to by staff at all levels
Julie McMahon – Membership Coordinator:
ODI works hard to achieve its mission but there is fun at the heart of the organisation. ODI has a genuine family friendly approach to work patterns which is really helpful and refreshing
