Making Mobile Better

Three – Why Work For Us?

undefined 

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.

The videos, links and information here should give you a better idea about Three and what we offer to potential employees.

    I have been working at Three full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fun to work there, a very co-operative attitude to getting things done. Innovative - ideas are encouraged and staff empowered. Such a world of difference compared with the telco in Newbury.

    Cons

    A bit chaotic at times. Can be a bit unstructured but that's part of the fun.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You seem to be on the right track. Keep the right balance between introducing processes and stifling innovation and cooperation.
