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.

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.
