Oxfordshire is home to the world’s best scientists and being based at Culham provides us with easy access to that talent.

Jon Graham

Chief Executive, JTL

Speaking about the new Oxford Advanced Skills facility : “These are really exciting times for apprentices in the Oxford area. We have been working in Oxfordshire for many years but decided recently that in order to be able to provide the quality of training that young people deserved we needed to launch our own training facilities, which we have now achieved with our premises at Culham.”

Co-Founder, Greencore Construction

It was important for us to have an office in Oxfordshire as it is centrally located with easy access to London. Culham Innovation Centre was the perfect fit with it being located at a science campus combined with the flexibility to expand at the centre without costly overheads associated with office moves.
