Pure Telecom set to create 30 new jobs

Pure Telecom has today pledged to create 30 new jobs over the next two years as part of a €2m investment.

Positions will be spread across customer care, sales and technical support, and will include a national sales manager, two regional sales manager and three supervisory roles.

The investment will see the company employ 80 people in total.

The Irish telecoms company is targeting an increase from 30,000 to 45,000 customers over the next year, which it says would yield additional revenues of approximately €6.5m .

Pure Telecom recently signed a two-year partnership agreement with eircom Wholesale worth €20m, which gives Pure Telecom customers access to eircom’s broadband network.

The company's broadband-only service allows customers without a land-line to access high speed fibre broadband up to 100Mb/s with no download limits and no land-line charges, according to the company.

Speaking about the announcement, Paul Connell, director, Pure Telecom said: “We’ve achieved consistent year-on-year growth and this announcement is a statement of our ambition to grow our business very strongly.

“We’re looking to add people to our team who have the hunger, drive and dynamism to build a successful career in telecoms. We want people who share the same values that have helped Pure Telecom grow to the company it is today. For us it is all about passion for customer service.

“We’re transforming people’s expectations about the level of customer service they should expect from their telecoms services provider.

“We provide a very simple mix of a very responsive service, together with the best possible telecoms solution for each individual customer.

“We have the huge advantage of not physically owning our own network, which means that we can effectively act as a telecoms broker, not constrained by any single network.”

David Sheill, commercial sales director, Pure Telecom, added: “These new positions will give us the manpower to provide the additional support and care we’ll need for a larger customer base.

“We are very bullish about the opportunities we have and we expect to grow the team here even more in the coming years.”
