Working at Arqiva
Connecting people, organisations and their devices to the data, information and entertainment they need and want is an always-inspiring task. So if you’re looking for work that will develop and challenge you, Arqiva is the place.
From day one you’ll be helping to deliver content that reaches billions of eyes and ears through TV, radio and the Cloud, and manage critical data across our networks. Our engineers, technicians, customer and commercial teams come together to ensure seamless service for household names like the BBC, ITV, Sky and Thames Water.
With constant opportunities to challenge the status quo, have your ideas heard, and be recognised and rewarded for your successes, there’s nowhere better for your career to flow.
The core of Arqiva’s culture is our desire to go that bit further to help our customers reach their customers and audiences.
We’re nifty thinkers, trusting our curiosity to find ingenious solutions to the problems we’re set. Of course, being on the cutting edge of the latest in broadcast and network engineering means that we’re comfortable with change – often pioneering it.
We value simplicity too. Clarity and being straightforward in how we think, act and behave is vital to us being effective, and underpins our integrity. And we’re collaborative: it takes lots of us, with different areas of expertise and passions, to deliver all the time.

Arqiva is committed to making our workplace as diverse and inclusive as possible. Why? Because the complex engineering and commercial challenges we need to solve can only be done by people with a diverse range of skills, backgrounds and life experiences. We know differences in perspectives are the keys to unlocking the creative thinking needed to reach new and better solutions – we call it unleashing the extraordinary, every day.
We want all our work environments to be inclusive, where everyone can be the best that they can be, and feel comfortable while doing so. We value everyone’s individuality, and we continually focus on how we can become more welcoming for all our people.
Being a good corporate citizen underpins how we work at Arqiva.
Since 1922, Arqiva has been enabling a switched-on world to flow. We delivered the world’s first TV broadcast for the BBC from the tower at London’s Alexandra Palace in 1936. We also developed satellite TV in the 1970s, Teletext (ask your parents), and launched the UK’s national DAB radio and digital terrestrial television networks in the 2000s.
There’s no resting on our laurels though. We were the first company in Europe to trial 5G fixed wireless access technology in 2017, and we are currently working with our broadcast partners to develop new ways to reach their viewers and listeners via the Cloud. Plus we’re moving into new sectors, like utilities. We won our first contract to deliver gas and electricity metering in the north of England and Scotland in 2013, and followed that in 2015 with a partnership with Thames Water to set up and run the world’s largest smart water metering network.
