Company Details

If you are studying in the United Kingdom then you might be more familiar with the name O2 than you are with the name Telefónica. We operate our telecommunications, internet and finance services in the UK under the trade name of O2 which we acquired in 2005.

Based in Slough, Telefónica has become the UK’s second biggest mobile telecommunications company.

The Telefónica group as a whole operates telecommunications businesses in countries all over the world and has grown to become the fifth biggest mobile network provider on the planet.

Telefónica was born in Spain in 1924, but has expanded operations so that we now operate over three quarters of our business outside of our home country. In 2012, we grew our customer base in 25 countries to well over 300 million and had a global headcount of over 250,000 talented people.

In the UK, under the O2 name, Telefónica has over 10,000 employees in its family - but we are constantly trying to find the most talented people in the UK to come and work with us.

If you want to work at a Telefónica O2 store in the UK then there are a number of full and part time positions which you could apply for. We look to fill entry level positions within our retail stores but are passionate about making sure that exceptional talent progresses upwards through the company.

Students and young people can apply for vacancies at over 400 Telefónica O2 stores as Retail Advisors, O2 Gurus, Assistant Store Leaders and fully fledged Store Leaders. The various roles demand different degrees of experience but we are interested to hear from students from all backgrounds. You can find more information about the particular roles available by clicking through to any open vacancies displayed at the bottom of the page now.

We also offer a range of graduate positions on the Telefónica Talentum Graduate Programme. We also provide summer internships and industrial placements for outstanding students and undergraduates in the United Kingdom. Work experience opportunities are also available for school leavers who want to make their mark with a global name.

If you want an exceptional graduate career with a world leader in the telecommunications world then you couldn’t do better than joining Telefónica.

Telefónica looks for students and graduates who relish a challenge and don’t mind being outside of their comfort zone once in awhile. We want big thinkers who can develop new ideas to help us grow even bigger and provide ever improving solutions to our customers.

You will be focused on customer services and a strong decision maker with a keen interest in cutting edge technology in a global environment.

The Telefónica Talentum Graduate Programme is split into specialised roles including Operations IT & Networks, Human Resources, Marketing, Leadership and European Leadership.

All of the Talentum graduate programmes run for two years and we start to look for the most talented individuals very early each year with applications closing in mid-February.

All of our summer internships are paid and we look for undergraduates to join us for 3 months or 12 months to gain second-to-none, hands-on experience in areas like Marketing, HR, Operations, IT and Business.

If you are the exceptional student or graduate we are looking for, then apply for any open graduate or internship positions at Telefónica below.
