Life at MBNL

If you ask an MBNL’er what it’s like to work here you’re likely to hear at least one of these words: flexible, fast-paced, challenging and fun. Words you won’t hear are: comfortable, uncomplicated, repetitive and easy.

We’ll be straight with you. We’re a small team with a lot to deliver and we get a huge amount done.

And we work in a unique and constantly evolving environment. Enabling two of the UK’s best and largest mobile networks to consistently deliver first class results can give you a real buzz, but it can also be incredibly complex and challenging at times, both personally and technically.  But we don’t like to put things into the ‘it’s too hard’ box.

It won’t matter what role you’re here to do, you’ll need to be just as comfortable with executing the detail as you are with developing leading strategies. If you feel that’s the sort of environment you can thrive in, we won’t leave you to flounder. Instead you’ll find a clear vision, plenty of bright minds and the right support.

We believe our people make MBNL

Our people make our success. There are no flashy brands, shiny products or ostentatious offices. However what you will find is a talented team who are committed to doing a truly great job.

Here at MBNL we’ll give you the space, support and environment to empower you to reach your full potential. And you can be sure that what you do individually and collectively will count.

We’re proud to offer a top-notch development framework that encourages you to grow your strengths and abilities outside your current role and puts you firmly in the driving seat of your career. You’ll own your own development every step of the way. As well as being able to access development opportunities that support your individual needs, we run a fantastic company-wide development programme aimed at honing your wider business skills, developing your management skills and becoming a leader.

On top of all this and the excellent benefits on offer, we have a great culture. And we’re not just blowing our own trumpet here – our people regularly tell us we do! We believe that there are benefits to us all of working in a flexible way and we also really value the face to face contact we have with each other as we believe it makes our business better. As a result we have adopted a hybrid working approach with our colleagues attending the office 2 days a week on average. We like to have fun and get together through our monthly socials, pop up cafes and our winter and summer events. We also provide free drinks from Thames Tower’s coffee shop and regular fruit deliveries to help you keep those mid-morning hunger pangs at bay.

Flexible perks and benefits

Our people tell us they are proud to work here and enjoy their jobs. But we all like to be fairly rewarded for what we do too!

What you get out of working here packs a hefty punch for our size. There’s a host of benefits that can be flexed to your needs, a bonus scheme (that links your contribution, the way you work and MBNL’s overall success), access to a development framework which aims to grow you beyond your role, the opportunity to work in a fun, fast paced culture where we take a flexible approach to working life.

Some of our benefits depend on your grade, but here’s an idea of what to expect:

  • 25 days holiday (which increases to 35 days with length of service) and the ability to buy extra days each year
  • Generous contributory pension scheme
  • Bonus scheme
  • Life assurance
  • Private medical insurance or health care cash plan
  • Hybrid working, with 2 days a week face-to-face, and a contribution to help you set up your home work station
  • Company car (or cash allowance) – depending upon your grade
  • Up to 10 days leave for UK Volunteer Reserve Forces
  • 2 days of volunteering leave so that you can support the causes that mean the most to you, and a charity sponsorship donation matching scheme
  • A whole host of flexible benefits to suit your individual needs – including critical illness cover, dental insurance, wine clubs, bike to work scheme, health assessments, retail vouchers – plus many more!

The MBNL Way

We believe that the way you get stuff done is just as important as what you achieve. We’ve developed a way of working that we know makes a difference to our success. We call this the MBNL Way and every MBNL’er is expected to embrace, love it and live it.
