Where it all began…
The One Step Foundation was the brain child of the late Sean O’Brien, a well respected local businessman. Sean established The One Step Foundation in 2012 with his wife & business partner, Samantha O’Brien and business partner & personal friend, Nick Mock.
The Foundation was set up specifically to widen the reach of our parent company One Step Recruitment’s continued work with schools, preparing students to enter the work place. To mark the launch we held the first Somerset Careers Fair, an event that was held annually with the fifth anniversary show held in October 2017. The fair was to help inspire young people to achieve their potential – outlining the options, opportunities and career pathways available, uniting students with the organisations and establishments who could make this happen. Our 2016 event also saw the launch of our highly successful new recruitment feature for job seekers and those looking to change career.
In the early days The Foundation was wholly funded by the O’Brien Investment Group, including One Step Recruitment. It is now run in Sean’s memory as a not-for-profit organisation, to inspire young people and support the community.

Our students were buzzing on their return from the Careers Fair, eager to share their experiences with their teachers, having found out about a range of courses from beauty to hospitality, hair design to The Army. Many students wanted to stay longer and felt they were much more informed about their options and future career paths. The only complaint was the strain on their arms from the many bags of information and freebies they had all acquired! October 2017.Crispin School, Street
