Know how to get the best out of a tight knit team? A natural with customers? Love the latest technology? Then here’s business you can lead, grow and shape.

Something to get excited about:
Our stores are great places to visit. And work, especially when you’re in charge. As well as driving commercial performance, you’ll make sure our customer experience is world-beating. You’ll lead a team that encourage customers to enjoy our products and services while finding the right handsets and tariffs for them. That means recruiting smart switched-on people, then coaching and developing them so they’re skilled at having great conversations and finding out just what customers’ need, offering a real personal service and making the techie stuff simple and straightforward

A background that’ll take you further:
You may already be making your mark in the mobile retail industry, but if you’re not, that’s ok too. You’ll be demonstrating you know how to lead, organise and manage a team. Wherever you are now you’ll soon impress us with how much you know about sales techniques, team-building, how you’re motivated by targets and how keen you are to be the kind of role model others look up to.

A bit about us:
We exist to make mobile better for everyone. Ever since we were created in 2003, we've been challenging and changing the way the industry works by putting customers first and tackling the issues that frustrate and annoy them. We were the first mobile network to take the fear out of using data with our All You Can Eat plans. We were the first to abolish eye-watering roaming charges for people travelling abroad and we were the first network to give our customers 4G at no extra cost. We knocked out sky high prices for calling 0800 numbers before anyone else.
We’re able to do this thanks to our amazing people who share our passion and belief in making things right.
For us to be at our best, we need the right team. This is why we’re committed to helping our people fulfil their potential, so they can help us fulfil ours.
