AROUND 350 jobs are being created as part of a four-year project to roll-out ultrafast broadband services to homes and businesses in Chester, Blackpool and Preston.

New full fibre connections will be installed by Telent from early next year on behalf of CityFibre – the UK’s third national digital infrastructure platform.

It forms part of a wider £4 billion Gigabit City Investment Programme which aims to reach up to eight million premises nationwide.

Ric Welsby, Telent infrastructure services managing director, said: "Telent is proud to be playing our part in bringing ultrafast broadband to the north west.

"We are now looking for an array of reliable and dedicated people to help build this new network."

Telent have roles available for telecoms engineers, project and delivery managers and field surveyors with training available for anyone looking to join one of the UK’s fastest growing companies in a dynamic and rewarding industry.

Ric added: “Being part of developing the UK’s critical digital infrastructure upgrade is exciting work and you can be part of the team making it happen with Telent.

"We’re an independent, profitable, thriving business with a promising future. We offer great flexibility, above average pay and excellent benefits.

"Plus, our commitment to training and career development has recently been recognised with the award of Silver accreditation by ‘Investors in People’."
