About us

At Arqiva our vision is to be central to every vital connection in a world which depends

on a continuous stream of information. We play a key part in providing the mediums that make Mobile phone, Smart Metering, Television and Radio services available 24/7 throughout the UK.

Our values are about being ingenious, collaborative and straightforward, providing top quality solutions and services that meet our customers’ needs.

What we do in Telecoms/M2M

We are the UK’s largest independent tower provider and leading supplier of M2M platforms to the utility sector. Telecoms/M2M provide services to all the UK mobile Network Operators as well as Smart Metering services to some of the UK’s major Gas, Electricity and Water companies.

You will be working within a team who are responsible for the Design, Development and Delivery of such solutions as well as new and innovative Products and Services

A recent example of this is the Arqiva Smart Metering Solution for Electricity and Gas in the CSPN region (Manchester to the North of Scotland) where the Telecom team developed a Flexnet Network solution utilising the Arqiva portfolio of towers that will ultimately deliver a Smart Metering service to over 10 million households.

Don’t worry though, you won’t be on your own; you will be guided and supported throughout by a range of specialists covering areas such as Radio Planning, Network design, Data Management Systems, Service and Operations as well as other internal teams such as legal, finance, procurement and commercial.
