About Ossila

Ossila is a small but high-growth, high-tech business based in the UK looking to continue our rapid expansion over the next few years. Formed by academics from the University of Sheffield we have recently moved off-campus to give us more space to grow. Our aim is to build a world-class company of significant size and stature over the next five years that helps to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery by providing standardised materials and equipment with improved performance, lower cost and great customer support.

Approximately 75% of our sales are exported to over 1000 institutions in 84 countries, we have many of the world leading research institutions as customers and have recently won both Institute of Physics awards for innovation and a Queens Award for export.


Sorry, there are no open vacancies.

Why Work For Ossila?

Ossila is a small and friendly company with around 40 staff based in Sheffield. We provide the following benefits:

  • Flexible working around core hours (10AM-4PM), as well as staggered hours
  • Enrolment with private health insurance (Westfield) which includes cover for dependent children
  • Company pension
  • Shared parental leave

As a small but growing business we believe that the single biggest benefit we offer is the ability to gain responsibility, learn, and grow as a professional. The majority of our management team were promoted from entry level jobs, and that is representative of our desire to provide interesting, challenging and stretching jobs with real progression.
