Graduate Scheme - Ofcom

Ofcom is the independent regulator and competition authority for the UK communications industries. We regulate the TV, radio, fixed-line telecoms, mobile telecoms and postal sectors, plus the radio spectrum over which wireless devices operate. We are now seeking applications from graduates to join our coveted Graduate Scheme for 2018.

As a Graduate at Ofcom, you will join an exceptional training programme that will provide you with unique insight to the workings of the communications industries. Communications play a crucial role in the lives of UK citizens and consumers, and as the sector regulator, Ofcom exists to make these markets work for everyone. The fast-paced nature of the markets we oversee means that this role is ever-changing.

Whatever your degree subject there are several pathways open to you which will enable you to maximise your skills within your preferred area. The Ofcom Graduate Scheme pathways that you can apply for include:

Generalist and Policy (London or Edinburgh)
Economist (London or Edinburgh)
Spectrum Engineer

Our Graduates work on a wide range of projects during their time with Ofcom, the impact of which will have an effect upon everyone in the UK. You will move across different teams and projects, gaining knowledge and insight, developing your skills and finding your perfect specialism. Graduates have worked on projects as varied as television policy and content standards investigations to the upcoming launch of 5G mobile services, to research projects such as the recent ?box set Britain? report.

Interested? To be considered, you must have, at a minimum, a 2:1 degree (or equivalent). Equally important is your enthusiasm to learn, capacity to pick up new skills quickly and desire to create a strong career for the future. A permanent role in the organisation is waiting for you at the end of the two year scheme.
