Onecom embarks on major recruitment drive

PE backed Onecom is banking on substantial organic growth facilitated by a circa 30% boost to staff numbers.

The Whiteley-based comms provider expects to add 125 new heads mostly in sales roles across its eight locations, with a particular focus on offices in Whiteley, Telford, Shoeburyness and Cardiff.

Onecom currently employs almost 400 staff and its latest recruitment drive follows new funding of £100m, which it secured earlier this year from PE firm LDC and credit funds managed by an affiliate of Ares Management Corporation. 

Onecom CEO Ben Dowd intends to grow the business threefold over the next three to five years.

He said: "We currently have 100,000 business customers and are 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. 

"Increasing our headcount is key to us achieving this. This represents a significant moment of organic growth for Onecom, and we are also finalising plans for acquisitive growth in the coming months.”
