Onecom, the UK’s largest independent business telecommunications provider, today announces the start of a huge recruitment drive to add one hundred and twenty-five new staff to its business, increasing its headcount by around 30%.
In the seventeen years since launching, Onecom has grown into a UK-wide network of regional offices employing almost four hundred staff.
Two thirds (65%) of Onecom’s new recruits will work in the sales team and be spread across the companies 8 locations, with a particular focus on its offices in Whiteley, Telford, Shoeburyness and Cardiff.
News of the headcount increase follows Onecom’s new funding of £100 million, which it secured earlier this year from mid-market private equity firm LDC and credit funds managed by an affiliate of Ares Management Corporation to help support organic and acquisitive growth.
Onecom’s leadership team, headed by Ben Dowd, CEO, has outlined an ambitious target to grow the business threefold over the next three to five years, and its recruitment drive is the latest step towards realising that goal.
Ben Dowd, CEO, Onecom 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.”
Parysa Hosseini-Sech, Head of Human Resources, Onecom, said “In an uncertain marketplace, our commitment to our growth plans and our people remains strong. Onecom’s consistent success can be entirely attributed to the talent and hard work of our people. We’re excited about adding more exceptional employees to the business as we continue to move forwards.”
