giffgaff - Work From Home Educators

  • Overview:
    • Who we are
      giffgaff is a little different to your ‘normal’ telecoms company. It’s a mobile business owned by
      Telefonica, but is run by its members. Sounds interesting? It is. We want people to love what they do
      and love what giffgaff is all about. It’s important to feel that way, especially in this energetic and
      competitive market. Us folk at giffgaff are a spirited and disruptive bunch, not every now and then
      but every day, yes, even on Monday mornings. Each and every person, who comes and works at
      giffgaff must believe that we are a David amongst Goliaths in Mobile-land. And much like David, we
      are successfully making a positive change.
