Up to 60 jobs are set to be created in Greater Manchester after fibre broadband provider 4th Utility announced plans to significantly expand its UK operation.

The company, which specialises in ultra-fast fibre broadband installations, is set to increase the size of its workforce more than five-fold.

The announcement also comes just weeks after 4th Utility unveiled a new long-term partnership with DIF Capital Partners, which included a £25m investment package to support thousands more ultra-fast fibre broadband installations.

Tony Hughes, chied executive at 4th Utility, said: “We’re embarking on a really exciting period for 4th Utility and we’re thrilled to be making up to 60 new roles available as part of our strategy for future growth.

“Increasing our market share and bringing commercial-grade fibre broadband to even more people is a strategic priority for us right now and in order to do that, we need a strong team of people behind us.”

Salford-based recruiter Morson Group has been appointed to manage 4th Utility’s entire HR function during a three-year recruitment process outsourcing partnership.

The first phase includes the launch of a dedicated careers microsite, development of key hiring collateral and market intelligence information.

One-third of the positions are expected to be filled before the end of the year.

Ged Mason, chief executive at Morson Group, added: “It’s clear that 4th Utility is on an upwards growth trajectory, and we’re proud that they have chosen to appoint Morson as their recruitment partner and in doing so, unlock the benefits that such a collaborative partnership can offer.”
