Your new company

My client is one of the most beautiful of Oxford Colleges that was founded in 1879. Originally a ladies only College, it has been mixed for many years and is one of the few colleges who are able to accommodate both their undergraduate and postgraduate students on site. It has a very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere with half of their intake coming from state schools and it is easy to see the shared spirit in all that they do- a distinctive balance of fierce intelligence, progressive values and an empathy that unites all who live and work there.
