We're proud to have placed 12th in 25 Best Companies to work for and to have won the Special Award for Learning and Development.

The Best Companies to Work for Awards 2021

Openreach has been named as one of the top 25 Best Big companies to work for for the second year running. To make things even better we moved three places up the list and were marked as outstanding.

The annual awards are based on the views of employees. Thousands of our people responded to a survey giving their views on what it’s like to work at Openreach including areas such as leadership, wellbeing and personal development.

The results of the survey recognised us as a company that is committed to personal growth, promotes wellbeing and has a high level of employee engagement.
