Independent telecoms provider Onecom enters Northern Ireland market
THE UK’s largest independent telecommunications provider Onecom has expanded into the Northern Ireland market by opening a new regional office in Belfast.
Headquartered in Hampshire, Onecom operates from 12 regional offices throughout the UK and employs more than 400 staff.
It is Vodafone UK’s largest enterprise partner, managing more than 325,000 mobile connections and delivering communication services including fixed line, mobile, broadband and cloud computing to some of the UK’s most dynamic companies.
Onecom is making an investment of more than £5 million in its Northern Ireland operation and says it expects to employ 30 people in Belfast within five years.
Its local team will be led by Paul Lawther (head of mobile sales) alongside business development managers Stuart Lunn, Mark Fraser and Darren Brown. All are enterprise communications specialists with extensive experience of the Northern Ireland market.
Sales director Jason Waterworth said: “Onecom has achieved significant growth by investing in our people and processes, and by delivering great customer service. We are committing to Belfast for the long term, with the aim of being the largest and fastest growing independent provider of communications in Northern Ireland.”
He added: “Northern Ireland is a market with a great history of entrepreneurs building high quality businesses, it continues to attract high levels of investment from international companies and it has an unrivalled talent pool, all of which makes it very attractive for Onecom’s future growth plans.”
