YASA is a knowledge-intensive business and as such, we recognise our people are our greatest asset. That’s why we’re especially proud to be recognised as one of the Sunday Times’ Best UK Small Companies to work for. The independently-awarded 3 star accreditation demonstrates the highest level of workplace engagement, ensuring our employees feel highly valued and part of an ambitious great team.

The majority of our 270-person team are based in our headquarters and production facility in Oxford U.K., with a second R&D centre in Welshpool, Wales. Between them, the team currently hold 148 degrees, ranging from Bachelors degrees to Masters and PhDs, and have generated the intellectual property behind over 120 YASA patent applications and 24 patent families.

Developing World-class Talent

Key to our success is our commitment to investing in our people, at every stage of their career. The YASA Student Placement Scheme for example offers 3-month Summer internships to university undergraduates and a range of 12-month industrial placements for undergraduates as part of their degree course.
