Map Announces 150 Broadband Jobs for Teesside

Map Group’s latest recruitment wave will add to its 400-strong headcount and potential candidates don’t need to have any experience sector as full training will be given.

The company, which also has offices in Peterlee, is one of the leading independent providers of technology services to the UK communications market.

Successful candidates will all be employed directly by Map Group and while some prior experience may be preferable, says Chief Executive Mike Carlin. Map Group’s partner the DTN Academy will walk recruits through the training.

“We will then put them out in the field, in various aspects of fibre-optics,” he said.

“We are looking to try and fill as many roles as we can with local people.

“These roles will reinforce our current workforce and also increase our headcount in other areas.

“We will be taking on apprentices as well as bringing in people who have no experience.

“This is one of the biggest growth industries in Britain, broadband is needed everywhere.

“We are going from strength to strength as a business, expanding other areas as well.

“We are an associate of Cornerstone Business Solutions and have also just acquired Cablecom.

“It’s a very progressive area.

“There will be a shortage of labour nationally; the more personnel we have, the more we can deliver to our clients.”

An open day will be held for applicants to gain an idea of what is required in the roles prior to interview stage, he added.

Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen posted about the recruitment drive on Facebook.

He said: “Just got off the phone with Mike Carlin – Chief Executive of Map Group (UK)

“Good news is: he tells me there are 150 telecoms jobs available! If you get through, they’ll put you on a proper training course and offer you a guaranteed position.138259102799

“With salaries starting at £24,000, and onwards up to £40k+, it’s definitely worth going for.

“Local workers must always come first, so get applying!”
