Onecom to create 125 jobs

THE UK’s largest independent provider of telecommunications for business is planning to hire 125 more staff.
Hampshire-based Onecom says a recruitment drive will increase its headcount by almost a third after it secured £100million of investment earlier this year.
Onecom says two two-thirds of the new jobs will be created in its sales team and will be spread across its eight offices, with a particular focus on its Whiteley head office, Telford, Shoeburyness in Essex and Cardiff.
Launched 17 years ago, the company employs almost 400 people across its regional offices.
Earlier this year, it secured £100m from the mid-market private equity firm LDC and credit funds managed by an affiliate of Ares Management Corporation, to help support organic growth and acquisition.
Its leadership team aims to grow the business threefold over the next three to five years.
Its chief executive, Ben Dowd, 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.
