CityFibre Growth through Collaboration

CityFibre are a Telecoms business who are passionate about offering a “Full Fibre” solution to 100% of the UK and are encouraging a move away from “Fake Fibre” and historic Copper Networks.

Fuel Recruitment were engaged to initially supply a Permanent Recruitment solution in partnership with CityFibre’s existing internal Recruitment Team. The strength of the partnership between the 2 businesses soon meant that Fuel’s offering rapidly extended to salary benchmarking, market mapping and consultancy services across the CityFibre business.

Within a very short period, Fuel had successfully placed 20 candidates.

CityFibre needed to grow Teams of 10 – 15 staff in 26 Cities in a 12-month period. In total this equated to over 350 positions.

These positions were all UK based covering a number of towns and cities from Aberdeen to Portsmouth. Location challenges, the sheer volume of roles and skills shortages all posed issues that Fuel Recruitment assisted CityFibre with by creating strategic plans to source the best talent.

Fuel Recruitment dedicated a team of Consultants and an Account Director to the CityFibre Project. Weekly key performance indicators were introduced by Fuel Recruitment to monitor progress and success in conjunction with the Internal Recruitment Team at CityFibre.

Members of the Fuel Recruitment Team worked onsite at client offices across the UK in addition to attending Expo’s, Conferences and Events with CityFibre to enable them to learn as much about the business and the challenges as possible.

Fuel Recruitment remains a key trusted Recruitment Partner of CityFibre as we move into the next phase of the recruitment program maintaining a weekly onsite presence and providing the services detailed above, salary benchmarking, market mapping, consultancy and market feedback.

Placements have been made across the Commercial, Contracts, Network Delivery, Design and Project Support Teams due to an in depth understanding of CityFibre’s requirements

Understanding CityFibre’s business challenges has been fundamental to the success of this campaign to find the best talent and challenge the standard recruitment model.
