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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Three in February 2018.

    Interview

    First there was an online questionnaire, followed immediately by an offer to take part in a video style interview. The video interview was not something I'd done before, they have a pre-recorded interviewer asking questions, which you then record your answers to.
    About a week later I got a phone call asking if I could come into the store to meet the manager for a face to face interview. The phone call prepped me on everything that would take place in the face to face meeting.
