Telecoms jobs boost
OPENREACH has created 20 new jobs in Dumfries and Galloway.
About 500 Scottish jobs will be created overall as the company continues to invest billions of pounds into its UK broadband network, people and training.
With a workforce of 3700 across Scotland, Openreach employs the nation’s largest team of telecoms engineers and professionals and has committed to building a more diverse and inclusive team in an industry that has traditionally been very white, male dominated.
Last year, 17 per cent of the company’s intake of trainee engineers in Scotland was female, more than triple the previous year.
CEO of Openreach Clive Selley said: “Openreach is a people business first and foremost, so I’m proud that we’re continuing to invest heavily in our people, having hired and trained more than 8000 new engineers over the last two years, over 800 of them across Scotland.
“These new recruits will play a crucial role as we continue to improve services for our customers and build the biggest and best broadband network in Scotland.”
