Gigaclear has announced plans to hire 120 full-time engineers by the end of March 2021 as it ramps up its full-fibre network build capacity.
The rural broadband provider aims to increase its headcount by 20% between July 2020 and March 2021 to improve technical skills, boost build speed, increase responsiveness to customer demand and speed up maintenance.
Gigaclear Delivery Director Nathan Rundle said: “Investing in our in-house field engineering team will help us become more responsive and also drive standards by setting a benchmark for our contractors to match in terms of quality and customer experience.”
Gigaclear builds and operates a full fibre, ultrafast broadband network in rural areas using a combination of commercial investment and subsidy under the Building Digital UK (BDUK) scheme. Established in 2010, its network now reaches more than 200 communities across central and southern England.
