Our culture

We believe that getting culture right helps us to deliver for our customers, enjoy our experience at work and is critical to the delivery of our strategy. With an ambitious vision, our culture goals of Accountability, One Arqiva and Curiosity outline behaviours that will help us achieve this. We recognise that culture is created by people over time and that getting it right is dependent on both individual actions and collective effort. 

We've defined three culture goals for everyone at Arqiva:

  • Accountability - We will be accountable for keeping the promises we make
  • One Arqiva - We will work together as one team
  • Curiosity - We will strive to look at things differently to discover a better way

Our history

Since 1922, Arqiva has been enabling a switched-on world to flow. We delivered the world’s first TV broadcast for the BBC from the tower at London’s Alexandra Palace in 1936. We also developed satellite TV in the 1970s, Teletext (ask your parents), and launched the UK’s national DAB radio and digital terrestrial television networks in the 2000s.

There’s no resting on our laurels though. We were the first company in Europe to trial 5G fixed wireless access technology in 2017, and we are currently working with our broadcast partners to develop new ways to reach their viewers and listeners via the Cloud. Plus we’re moving into new sectors, like utilities. We won our first contract to deliver gas and electricity metering in the north of England and Scotland in 2013, and followed that in 2015 with a partnership with Thames Water to set up and run the world’s largest smart water metering network.
