Telefónica is on a truly inspirational adventure. One of the world’s most innovative communications companies, and the name behind flagship brands such as O2, we’re thinking bigger than ever before. We’re taking on new challenges around the world and exploring new ways to open up the world for our millions of customers. And you could be part of it all.

O2 is the second largest mobile brand in the UK. And we’re part of Telefonica one of the world’s top communications companies. So when you work here the opportunities are huge.

Are you up to the challenge? Then we want you for O2.

O2 is a great place to work. Over the next three years, we need to go from being a mobile brand to a digital service brand. To go from selling mobiles and minutes, to helping our customers connect to the things that they love. To whoever, wherever, whenever.

Brand & Marcomms is a powerful team always reaching for breakthrough thinking – always considering our customer segments, journeys and benefits. This optimised customer focus (we measure everything and have stretch KPI targets) combined with clever and unique campaign designs and the very best creative in the UK will deliver our commercial success. O2 is a challenger Brand deep in its DNA and our Brand & Marcomms team reflects and believes this.

We’ve invested a lot of time and effort building our sponsorship portfolio over the last 10 years and we’re pretty proud of what we’ve achieved. Some say our partnerships are best in class.

They enable us to secure outstanding content – 48 hours artist presales, in-venue deals, industry leading offers, once in a lifetime experiences and much more. And through Priority, our market leading loyalty platform, we deliver this to our fans.

But we don’t want to be complacent. So, we are looking for someone to support the Sponsorship Team admin, and some of our larger key projects through the year.
