Vodafone Platinum Partner takes over the offices next to its existing base in Whiteley to house senior management and 70 customer service staff

OneCom has doubled the size of its headquarters in Whiteley, Hampshire to 12,000 sq ft with the opening of new offices.

The premises, ‘OneCom House’ is next to its existing base on the Solent Business Park, and will host the Vodafone Platinum Partner’s senior management and its customer services team of more than 70 staff.

The office was officially opened by comedian and Celebrity Big Brother winner Jim Davidson, who is also a OneCom customer.

OneCom, which handles over 200,000 mobile connections, employs more than 300 staff across offices in Camberley, Brighton, Plymouth, Leeds, Telford, Southampton, Norwich and Edinburgh.

The latest expansion follows a number of key senior staff appointments over the last few months as the company looks for continued growth.

These include Stephen Hunter, formerly a director of Hampshire Trust Bank, as chairman in December, and former Vodafone finance director Richard Schafer as chief financial officer in March.

OneCom CEO Darren Ridge said: “OneCom is a rapidly growing company and we simply needed more space to house our customer services team.

“Our new expanded offices are bigger, brighter and a much better fit for our staff – and there’s room to grow further as we build on our position as the biggest independent business-to-business mobile provider in the UK.”
