‘at the heart of the community’
We continue to focus on how we can maximise the positive impact of the work Ocean does and have added value through a wide range of resident and community empowerment activities.

‘Employer of choice – recruiting and retaining the best people’
We are one of the largest employers in the local area: By ensuring our employees are paid a fair and competitive wage we reduce benefit dependency and put money into the local economy. Our base level salary is 9% more than what is currently assessed as a ‘living wage’, whilst our staff costs remain competitive when assessed against our peers.
Ocean is committed to supporting the local community and education, through its commitment to the ‘Young Apprentice’ and ‘Apprentice’ programmes.
New recruits can join Ocean straight from school or further education, or from other companies. Careers range from construction, trades, development, housing management, administration, finance and customer services.
During 2014-15 we supported a number of local charities donating £6,070 (2013-14: £16,013).
