Communications company One Connectivity is celebrating two years of being based at their Nottinghamshire office. The company also has another reason to celebrate; it is expanding with the introduction of several new team members, and has enjoyed a successful period.
One of the new members of One Connectivity’s staff, Simon Smith, joins the team on a full-time role after an initial 12-week placement. This came as a result of One Connectivity working with a national charity, and Managing Director Paul Stevenson explains the significance of this relationship.
Paul says: “One Connectivity was chosen as the communications partner for a national charity called Street League. This Charity uses the power of football to change the lives of young people by supporting them to get back into work, education or training. Simon joined us in July last year on a 12 week work placement and we were really impressed with his enthusiasm and the fact he really wanted to get back into employment. We decided to offer Simon a full time role at One Connectivity after his work experience. Through ongoing training and development Simon has become a fantastic addition to the One Connectivity team and a real success story for Street League.”
Paul also hopes that the additional experience of Technical Solutions recruit, Adam Millington, who has nine years’ experience in the telecoms industry, working with several key players in this field, will help One Connectivity continue to grow for years to come. It is hoped that Adam’s knowledge in the telecoms industry will allow One Connectivity’s customers to have a single point of contact whilst working with the company.
Adam says: “I am really excited to be joining the team at One Connectivity, I have been really impressed with them over the past couple of years and I am always impressed with their customer focus and emphasis on customer experience. I honestly feel that One Connectivity are the telecoms company that truly deliver what they say and more, and I am really happy to be part of a team of great people with the same focus and values that I hold. I will be looking after the support and technical services for Broadband, Data, Fixed Line and Telephone System customers; this will include advising on the best solutions to businesses, designing and installing solutions, as well as offering on-going support to these customers.”
One Connectivity has also grown in a physical sense. After moving to their offices in the Old British Waterways building on the bank of the Trent Lock, One Connectivity now occupies the entire ground floor and has plans to expand onto the first floor as well. It was almost by chance that One Connectivity found that the building was available, as Paul explains:
“We walk our dog on the canal tow path and noticed somebody moving out,” Paul says. “The next day we contacted the Canal and River Trust and we moved in two months later. It’s a large building covering two floors. We started in just one room downstairs and have grown over the past 24 months and now occupy the entire ground floor. We are already planning moving into the upstairs towards the back end of this year. Everybody comments on our location and all the staff enjoy a break down by the river and canal, especially in the summer.”
It is an exciting time for One Connectivity as they plan to continue growing their team by adding new staff members in the coming weeks. With more growth expected in the near future, and with the prospect of an expansion of their offices, One Connectivity is hopeful that they will be celebrating more success on their next birthday.
