Explore our values at Ordnance Survey.

Four key values help shape us and the work we do:


We’re brave. We ask questions, push boundaries and embrace change. We’re not afraid to make mistakes because we know they help us discover better approaches to our work.


We’re pioneers. We recognise our work is never done. We always go the extra mile to find new ways of working and collaborating, so we can provide better services.


We’re perfectionists. People depend on our data, so by putting ourselves in others’ shoes we can make our complex information beautifully simple for them to use.


We’re insightful. Our clear thinking, confidence, and direct approach means we always give people the most up-to-date detail on our changing landscape.
