Fibre and Wireless Broadband UK ISP Airband Preps Expansion

The independent Worcester-based fixed wireless and full fibre (FTTP) broadband ISP, Airband, has announced a new recruitment drive after expanding their existing office space in Kirkham House by acquiring part of the upper floor of the building, which was formerly occupied by training provider CHS.

Over the past few years Airband has secured a number of state aid supported Building Digital UK contracts, such as in Shropshire, Herefordshire, Devon and Somerset. In that time they’ve also gone from being predominantly focused on building Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) networks to deploying ultrafast Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) ones.

Overall the provider has made 64 new hires so far in 2019, bringing the total number of employees to 113 (an increase of nearly 50% in the space of a year) and they’re still growing. All current vacancies can be seen at https://airband.breezy.hr .

Earlier this month the ISP also gained the Worcestershire Works Well accreditation, which is a scheme operated by Worcestershire County Council and designed to support businesses to improve the health and well-being of their employees.

Miranda Peel, Human Resources Director, said:

“We are investing in the future and want to attract the best engineering and digital talent, who will thrive in a vibrant and rapidly expanding business like Airband.

We were delighted to gain our Worcestershire Works Well accreditation, which is a great testament to our dedication to creating a positive working environment for all our staff.

Our mission is transforming connectivity for people and communities who deserve better and in order to do this we need to grow our engineering teams and our sales team. We’re currently recruiting for engineers in Oxford and Shropshire, field sales advisors in Worcestershire, and we also have five apprenticeships available – in business admin, customer services, IT and telecoms.

Our Worcester headquarters is conveniently based off the A38, one of the main arterial routes into the north of Worcester city, and we are known for having strong family values.”

Airband is also being supported by a £16m investment from the National Digital Infrastructure Fund (here).

    It’s a shame in their expansion drive airband have let their customers in the North Moor area of Devon down, big time. The service continues to drop off for hours at a time and when working cf the likes of sky/talk talk etc. Certainly no sign of high speed Internet. Amazingly, upgrades are always underway whenever you speak to them and if no Internet always comes back on whilst on the phone complaining. It seems they can’t cope with capacity demands kbut will still take your money).
