Gigaclear To Take on 120 Engineers for Broadband Expansion

The company, which has continued to expand its ultrafast, full-fibre network across rural Britain throughout lockdown, is planning on boosting its engineering capacity even further with a wave of new hires, growing its employee base by over 20 percent.


The recruitment drive, which will happen in phases with engineers joining from July 2020 until March 2021, will improve the rural broadband provider’s technical skills, boosting build speeds and increasing responsiveness to customer demand while making maintenance faster and more efficient.


Nathan Rundle, Delivery Director at Gigaclear says: “We’re proud to be recruiting externally at a time when so many other businesses are putting staff on furlough and making redundancies. It goes to show how fundamentally essential our work is as we continue to expand our network, helping families to stay in touch, allowing people to work from home, keeping communities connected, and so much more.


“Not only do we have more customers than ever, but rightly, with so many working from home and relying on uninterrupted, ultrafast internet access, they’re demanding the very best in terms of service, and so we’re ensuring that we have the resource to continually drive up the quality of our network. 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.


Nathan continues: “We’ll be providing full training and we’re looking to hire both senior and more junior roles from across different backgrounds. It’s particularly important for us to employ the right kind of people; those that are resilient and adaptable. The roles we’re filling offer a great deal of career progression for people with the right attitudes and a willingness to learn.”
