BROADBAND provider Fibrus has appointed a chief people officer to manage its growing team following the recruitment of its 100th member of staff.

It comes in response to rapid growth as a result of the company's appointment to deliver Project Stratum, which will see the roll out of full fibre broadband across the north.

The contract is set to radically transform broadband connectivity by extending a full fibre broadband service to nearly 80,000 mainly rural homes and businesses in the next few years.

This has led to a surge in the Fibrus team, where staff numbers have grown from 10 to 103 since its establishment in 2019 and led to Terri Johnston taking on the new post of chief people officer.

She said: “My role is to shape an environment where our people can do and be their very best. I'm an advocate for our amazing people, ensuring they are supported and have the tools they need to do great work, as well as the space and opportunity to grow professionally.

“This often means putting people before process, but sometimes a better process creates better results and improvements for everyone too.

“Fibrus has built a really strong team of talented individuals in a very short time period. Appointing a chief people officer demonstrates their commitment to building a healthy workplace and investing in their people.”

Fibrus ( continues to recruit for a range of roles from areas across Northern Ireland.
