Our purpose is to use the power of communications to make a better world. For each other, for our customers, for society and our communities. We work every day to deliver better service, broader coverage and faster speeds to everyone in the UK.

Openreach operates in a fast-moving, complex and competitive environment, and in Finance we play a crucial role in commercial decision making, investment of capital, driving efficiencies and transforming the business.

We provide timely, commercially-focused financial advice to support Openreach’s strategy and business priorities. The finance team works in partnership with each of the business units in Openreach, helping them deliver their initiatives and grow revenue and profit.

As an Openreach Financial Graduate, your work, whether it's modelling business scenarios or providing insight and analysis, is used in partnership with our business leaders to make strategic company decisions. Often working on multiple projects at a time, your work life is varied and fast paced, and you’ll be supported by a diverse and vibrant team.

If you’re looking for a varied and exciting 3 year graduate programme that will set you up for the future then this could be the programme for you.

You will be studying for your 3 year CIMA Qualification to become a chartered accountant, alongside three rotations throughout Finance, making sure you’ve got all the knowledge and skills to build a great career in Finance.

We might build the network, but you bring it to life

Entry requirements

Achieved a 2.1 in any STEM degree discipline.

Study Package

CIMA will be fully funded.

Study package will be offered to provide time out of work to study for each exam.

Study Funding Employee Commitment

Because of the financial investment made in you, a period of 5 years will apply. If you leave before this repayment of the qualification fees would be required.

If you leave Finance for another role within Openreach, the learning contract is terminated, and no further action is taken. If you leave the company, Openreach is entitled to reclaim some of its investment made in you. The amount that we can reclaim is dependent on how long it’s been since the investment was made; this is the period lapsed between the date of the last exam to the actual date of leaving. The percentage of investment repayable is based on the course and exam fees incurred in the 24-month period prior to the leave date. If you leave Openreach within 24 months of completing your final exam, you’ll be expected to pay back a portion of your course and exam fees. If you’re made redundant, you won’t be expected to pay anything back.

Openreach will not claim anything back two years after the last exam.

 Time elapsed at the leave date since last exam  Percentage of Investment repayable
 Less than 1 year  100% of fees incurred in past year
 1 year to 2 years  50% of fees incurred in past year
 2 years or more  0%

We value different perspectives, skills and experiences. Diversity makes sense for us, our customers and our ambitions. We’re creating an inclusive working culture where people from all backgrounds can succeed. That’s why we welcome applications from all parts of the community.
