Telent Technology Services, the British telecommunications and digital infrastructure company, has announced that it will create 250 jobs. The jobs include field surveyor, project manager and telecoms engineer roles. The business expansion is due to Telent securing a contract with Openreach to expand the ‘full fibre’ internet network across the UK, starting from January 2021.

A representative of Telent said the firm was happy to contribute to this critical infrastructure programme and added that the company would provide training to new recruits without experience of working in the telecommunications industry.

Telent provides communications and network services to clients including the London Ambulance Service and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. The company has recently announced the creation of 350 jobs as a subcontractor of CityFibre.
