Rural broadband provider on the hunt for more recruits

Rural broadband provider Quickline Communications is creating an infrastructure team as it accelerates its rollout of fast broadband.

The Quickline Build Team will be responsible for the building of fibre networks that connect rural communities to better broadband.

The new roles in the 16-strong team are the latest jobs to be created at Quickline, which recently moved into new offices at Albion Mills in Willerby, East Yorkshire, to accommodate its expansion.

From installing track, cabling and splicing to making fibre connections live in local areas, the team will spearhead Quickline’s mission to provide broadband to communities which have been left behind in the drive to improve access to the Internet across the UK.

Chris Akrill, head of fibre operations at Quickline, said: “Having our own dedicated Build Team will give us even more capacity and flexibility to roll out our gigabit capable broadband network to even more rural communities.

“We’ve got an ambitious target at Quickline to build our next generation broadband network to over half a million homes and businesses by 2025. To do that, we need an effective and robust team.

“We’re looking for talented individuals to join us on our exciting journey.”

The Build Team will support Quickline’s hybrid network rollout in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Once the infrastructure is in place, the project will be handed over to Quickline’s Network Team to complete connections to homes and businesses.

Jobs available in the new Build Team include civil operatives, cablers and splicers. Supervisor and manager roles are also being sought. All the roles are permanent positions.
