Who are we?
Listed in the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies 2017 Award, Gamma is one of the largest telecommunications companies in the UK. We sell a broad suite of products comprised of wholesale voice, mobile, data and cloud computing services, utilising our physical telecoms network. Our customers resell these services onto their end customers, which are typically UK-based businesses. In over ten years we have grown to over 800 staff with offices situated in Newbury, Portsmouth, London, Manchester, Glasgow and Eastern Europe.

Although still a growing company Gamma maintains a culture that allows employees to develop and avoid being pigeon-holed into roles. What makes Gamma successful is the people that work for it.

We also take our responsibility to the wider community seriously by making charitable donations to worthy causes and being one of the only telecoms companies to reduce its carbon footprint across the whole business to net zero.
