New Year boost for local job seekers

Job seekers have a New Year boost from booming telecoms providers who are increasing their staff by 50 per cent in Horsham.

Global 4 and Home Telecom say to meet demand 50 new jobs will be on offer during the next 12-months, which they say will give a much-needed boost to the local economy.

 About 20 of the jobs will be available for the start of 2016.

The opportunities have arisen due to the exceptional increase in customer demand for both Global 4 and Home Telecom, which between them now have more than 20,000 clients.

Global 4, founded in 1998, which provides telephony and data services to businesses, has recently won several large contracts and needs extra staff to service these and future accounts. It is also the parent company of Home Telecom, which offers broadband, calls and mobiles to the consumer sector. Home Telecom, part owned by the UK’s two largest estate agents, Countrywide and Connells, is expanding to offer additional services to clients moving properties.

 Global 4 and Home Telecom together now employ more than 100 people, meaning the new vacancies will expand the workforce by 50 per cent.

The companies say they are looking for confident people regardless of age or experience for a number of positions, including 15 people for their telesales teams. Other departments looking to fill vacancies are administration, service desk and technical support.

Global 4 managing director Nigel Barnett said: “This is an exciting time of rapid growth for Global 4 and Home Telecom.

“We are delighted to be able to offer so many new jobs to the local area. In particular, there are some excellent opportunities for school and college leavers, to whom we owe much of our considerable success.

“While other industries are still struggling in the current challenging economic climate, telecoms is an industry that continues to go from strength to strength, meaning it can offer solid career opportunities.”
