Pure Telecom, the Irish telecoms company, today announced it will create 30 new jobs over the next two years in an investment worth €2m.

Pure Telecom acts as an impartial telecom operator, seeking the best solution for customers and partners from the fixed line network owners. Pure Telecom has access to more leading networks and covers more of Ireland than any other, meaning that no other provider can provide a better and more extensive service.

Positions are to 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 grow to 80 employees in total.

The announcement is made as Pure Telecom is aiming for significant growth in its residential and business customer base. The company is targeting an increase from 30,000 to 45,000 customers over the next year, which 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 high-speed fibre broadband network. The telecoms company can also provide access to other leading networks, including BT and Verizon.

The Irish-owned telecoms company will aim to secure approximately two thirds of its new customers from its new Purely Broadband service. This broadband-only service allows customers without a landline to access high-speed fibre broadband up to 100Mb/s with no download limits and no landline charges.

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.”
