Worcester-based internet service provider Airband has announced an office expansion and a new recruitment drive following several large contract wins.
Just one year after relocating to larger premises in Kirkham House, Worcester, the company has acquired part of the upper floor of the building, formerly occupied by training provider CHS.
Airband’s workforce has doubled to 113 staff in 2019 and is set to grow further as the company implements its strategy to invest in digital transformation in rural and hard-to-reach areas.
It is currently recruiting engineers in Oxford and Shropshire, field sales advisors in Worcestershire and has five apprenticeships available in business admin, customer services, IT and telecoms.
To help it attract the best engineering and digital talent, Airband has gained accreditation to the Worcestershire Works Well scheme operated by Worcestershire County Council, which aims to encourage businesses to improve the health and well-being of their employees.
Human resources director Miranda Peel said: “We were delighted to gain our Worcestershire Works Well accreditation, which is a great testament to our dedication to creating a positive working environment for all our staff.”
