Three – Why Work For Us?

 

We're making things better.

Since 2003, we've created the biggest 3G network in the UK from scratch. We’ve developed internet services that our customers love and there's plenty more to come. We're committed to making mobile better for everyone in the UK. Whether it's building the best network, challenging the status quo, improving access for everyone, delivering firsts or simply offering best value.  And this commitment to making things better is reflected in how much we put into developing our people.

Working at our offices in Maidenhead or Glasgow, or in one of our Retail stores, you'll feel a real buzz in the air. No two days are the same and there's always so much going on. Most importantly, you'll have the scope to make a big impact on our business.

We aim to create an environment that means our people love working for Three. We put equal importance on what you achieve and how you achieve it. Our internal culture has been through significant transformation over the past five years. Our cultural principles focus around three behaviours: taking responsibility for making things better, keeping our word when we commit to doing something and being open and honest with each other and our customers.

    I have been working at Three as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I joined Three in July this year and I feel supported, cared for and fairly rewarded. The workload is manageable - a huge pro for me coming from a pretty hectic outsourcing background - and this is reflected throughout the office, no-one ever looks stressed! Three is a progressive, innovative company that really cares for its staff and customers alike.

    Cons

    I've yet to find any.
