The British Retail Consortium (BRC) has acquired OSS Retail, formerly known as the Oxford Summer School, from the British Independent Retailers Association. This is part of BRC’s ‘Better Jobs’ campaign and its ongoing commitment to repositioning retail as a career of choice. OSS’s unparalleled leadership programmes are run by retailers for retailers.

With the changing nature of jobs in the retail industry, talent retention and development are vital to the industry’s ongoing transformation. The reputational strength and reach of the BRC combined with the training expertise and industry support of OSS Retail will create a platform that can build on past successes and deliver highly regarded programmes, with the BRC accelerating the development of its careers and professional development offer, said BRC in a press release.

“This is an exciting time for the industry as it responds to the changing retail landscape. With technology changing the way consumers shop, it is essential we invest in the people who will facilitate the future successes of the industry, said Helen Dickinson OBE, chief executive of BRC.

“Recently, our BRC Learning division has launched two new apprenticeships into the market and launched Rethink Retail, our new careers guidance website. Working with OSS Retail will allow us to further build on our careers and development offering, for the benefit of our members and the wider industry.”

“We are delighted to have joined the BRC who will enable us to continue our growth plans and target a wider customer base. This demonstrates our commitment to continue developing our customers’ talent, at the same time underpinning retail as a career of choice,” said Dominic Prendergast, consultant managing director of OSS Retail.
