  • The ability to negotiate with suppliers and partners
  • Experience using spreadsheets to interpret and collate financial data

We expect a lot from our team, but we also want everyone to feel supported and empowered in helping us deliver our mission. That’s why we make sure to provide opportunities for you to learn, develop your career, use your talents, and fulfil your potential.

With a salary of £30,000 – £42,000 depending on experience, you’ll also get benefits like 25 days holiday, a day off on your birthday, car allowance, a day off to support a charity or organisation of your choice, performance-related bonus scheme, and private healthcare.

We want everyone to know – and feel – that CityFibre is a place where we can be ourselves, with all the things that make us similar and different. We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer; we celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all.
