Funding of £100 million will kickstart recruitment drive
Onecom, the UK’s largest independent business telecommunications provider has announced the commencement of a recruitment drive that will see the company increase its headcount by 30 per cent.
The recruitment drive follows the announcement that Onecom would receive funding of £100 million which it secured earlier this year from mid-market private equity firm LDC.
Two-thirds of Onecom’s new recruits will work in the sales team and be spread across eight locations with a particular focus on its offices in Whiteley, Telford, Shoeburyness, and Cardiff.
Onecom’s CEO Ben Dowd said: ‘We currently have 100,000 business customers and are exceptionally well placed to take advantage of the new opportunities in front of us, including the roll-out of 5G, adoption of fibre connectivity and the growing expenditure on telecommunications from SMEs. Increasing our headcount is key to us achieving this.
“This represents a significant moment of organic growth for Onecom, and we are also finalising plans for acquisitive growth in the coming months.”
