Job description

We’re all different. We all have different goals. And we all want different things from our careers. That’s why we don’t have a one-size-fits-all graduate programme at O2.

Here, you’ll start off as a bright, creative, tech-savvy graduate. And this is where it gets really interesting. Because the next thing you know you’re a leader in your own field, making an impact in the business areas you love, and chasing your own career dreams.
The truth is there are many different career paths to explore at O2. And no matter what subject your degree is in, we’ll see your potential and encourage you to make the most of it. So if you’re innovative, ambitious and not afraid to do things differently, we’ll give you the freedom to drive your own development and put your future in your hands.

Read our story.

Join us in Commercial Strategy, and you’ll get under the skin of our customers’ needs, develop innovative strategies and pioneering solutions that give us an edge, and ensure we use our commercial brains to make a difference. You’ll need to be hard working and focused on results, able to communicate, influence and inspire, and passionate about understanding our customers and their needs.

Join us in Digital, and you’ll join us at the heart of what we do - developing the latest digital innovations to solve problems and make life easier for our customers and colleagues. You could work with HTML or the latest devices, drive the performance of webchat and inbound telesales, or bring brilliant products to life. But whatever your role, you’ll need a commercial brain and strong business focus, a deep knowledge of tech and digital, and a passion for ideas.

Join us in Data & Analytics, and you’ll help us mine all kinds of big data on our customers and colleagues from lots of different sources. You’ll dig deep, analyse future trends, and turn it all into fresh insight that inspires growth, drives strategic initiatives, and helps us answer complex problems and make bold decisions. To make the impact we’re looking for, you’ll need to be a data champion – someone with a good head for figures, an obsession for the finer detail, and a passion for driving business change.

Join us in Relationship Management, and you’ll take our global brand to new heights when it comes to our relationships with suppliers and customers We’re talking service, partner, programme and contract management, internal communications, human resources, sales and more.. You’ll need to be someone who can interpret business needs, who has a passion for creating the best possible customer experiences, and who really understands the bigger commercial picture.

But whatever role you join us in, our leadership training will stretch and inspire you. You’ll develop a strong network of friends and fellow graduates at your induction and other events. You’ll be able to take advantage of online learning resources and short training courses at our learning academies. Your on-the-job learning will give you the skills to take on big responsibilities, make important decisions and shape the future of our business. And with support from your manager, a mentor and an online community of graduates, we’ll look after you all the way, and that includes your physical and mental wellbeing too.

Company information

More for you, our customers and our colleagues

That’s how we roll. We provide much more than mobile phones and networks. We get to know our customers and give them what they want and plenty more besides. Priority rewards. Extras. Perks. All kinds of good stuff. It’s the same with our colleagues. You’ll be more than a number. We’ll get to know what makes you tick and make sure your career, rewards and development all flex to fit around you.

Mobile phones are people’s lives. How long could you live without yours? And what’s on them makes them as unique as their owners. It’s our job to unlock new possibilities. To make sure people’s mobiles are gifts that keep on giving. And to help our customers laugh, learn, shop, explore and keep in touch more.

Every day is an adventure. There’s always a real buzz about the place. And we’re on the lookout for more great talent. A choice of benefits. The latest gizmos. Bright ideas. All kinds of career routes. You could enjoy all of these things and more at O2.
