Independent UK providers, Giganet and Cuckoo have announced 250 new jobs, the majority of which will be based out of a series of new customer service hubs that are being launched across the country. The remainder will cover technology, marketing, talent, HR and finance.

Giganet is also developing a graduate training programme, building on its existing apprenticeship scheme with Fareham College. Places will be offered to up to 20 graduates over the coming financial year.

The recruitment drive follows Giganet’s recent acquisition of Cuckoo, in line with its UK growth strategy as part of the Fern fibre family, which also includes Jurassic, Swish, Allpoints Fibre and Vorboss.

Jarlath Finnegan, CEO, Giganet says: “We are enormously pleased to be able to make this announcement at a time when the country is financially hurting. Giganet is growing and these new jobs will help us push forward and bring faster broadband to people being let down by our competitors.”

Alexander Fitzgerald, CEO of Cuckoo adds: “Our customers know we have their backs and we will keep moving forward to bring faster speeds and value for money. So, just like our network, our company is expanding to every corner of the nation, and we want to tap into the talent we know is all over the country. We are an example of what can be achieved in modern, brilliant Britain. There is a lot of economic doom and gloom but Cuckoo and Giganet are on the up.”
