Quickline launches community engagement teams recruitment drive

Quickline Communications has launched a new recruitment drive to expand its community teams as it continues its game-changing rural broadband rollout.

Quickline is recruiting for four regionally-based community engagement and sales teams to match the demand for its full fibre network build growth plan.

A further 17 people will be taken on across the field-based teams in North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and Lincolnshire – one covering the north of the county and the other the south.

They will bolster the existing team and will be based in the communities where Quickline has built or is building its network.

The Community Executive and Community Executive Team Leader roles will be focused on building relationships within the communities Quickline is serving, raising awareness of its activities, and showing how it can help residents and businesses by providing faster, more reliable broadband.

The recruitment drive is further evidence of Quickline’s impressive growth, on its mission to reach places other internet service providers leave behind.

It has already passed more than 300,000 premises with its existing next-generation fixed wireless broadband network and is rapidly blending that with full fibre to create the UK’s only gigabit hybrid network.

Wendy Hiley, HR and Talent Acquisition Business Partner at East Yorkshire-based Quickline, said: “We’re growing our existing team significantly to match the demand for our increasing footprint.

“We know the people in the communities we’re serving really like to talk to us face-to-face, in person, rather than over the telephone.

“That’s why we’re investing in our teams on the ground, who are out there in these communities, speaking directly to the people who live and work in them.”

The new team members will attend community events and act as brand ambassadors for Quickline.

This is a community-led sales approach with a focus on community engagement.

Michelle Simpson, Quickline’s Head of Sales, said: “We’re looking for warm, personable, and confident people who have a passion for meeting people and finding out about them.

“Every day will be different, with new people to meet and different places to go.

“We don’t need people with experience in sales. We’ll provide full training as required, but what’s important to us is that we have the right personalities to join our team and work with the communities we’re serving.”

Quickline’s fibre rollout covers some of the hardest to reach places which have previously been neglected by major broadband providers.

It will see Quickline bring broadband speeds of up to 1 Gbps to a further 55,000 homes and businesses in rural Yorkshire and Lincolnshire communities this year alone.
