We've got big ambitions.

Ambitions that see us want to grow and become one of the nation's best-loved brands.

Sound interesting? That's just the start.

At Three, we're leading our industry and delivering amazing experiences for our customers.

We’re building the UK’s fastest 5G network. When we say fast, we mean stupid fast. We have the MOST 5G spectrum, we have the best tech. We are going to blow the competition out of the water, because not all 5G is created equal. We are getting ready to launch the mother of all G's.

And in our Regulatory Affairs team we are using our expertise to make it happen. We're a bunch of subject matter experts brimming with talent. Firing on all cylinders with a culture that not only takes care of our people but empowers them to deliver career-defining work.

All this means we need more brilliant people. Ones who share our ambition and get stuck in with the next and most exciting part of our story – our 5G story.

Are you in?

As in-house Competition Counsel, you will report directly to the Director of Economic Regulation.

Our team purpose is to enable Three’s growth. We have corrected the UK’s spectrum imbalance, lowered mobile termination rates, knocked down barriers to switching and fostered fibre competition. We now want to democratise 5G for the people and shake up the telecoms market.

  • You will develop a clear regulatory strategy that aligns to our commercial goals
  • You will advise on competition issues affecting Three’s business.
  • You will have end-to-end responsibility for regulatory projects. You will analyse policy initiatives by regulators and propose a response to our senior management team.

  • You display clarity of thought and are proficient in explaining complex issues clearly.
  • You balance strategic, “big picture” view with analytical ability and attention to detail.
  • You have excellent communication skills (including experience in drafting submissions) and can put together clear arguments tailored to your audience.
