John Henry Group (JHG) is on the lookout for staff after being awarded a contract by Openreach to support a massive £12billion project to bring ultrafast broadband to millions of homes and businesses.

The company will build new infrastructure in Bedford as well as Northants and Cambridgeshire.

The Cambridge-based company will play a crucial role in building the new network to thousands of premises in these locations, with detailed planning activity already under way and construction due to start during the next 18 months.

Openreach’s Full Fibre network is already available to more than three million homes and businesses across the UK and JHG is one of nine partners to win contracts which will see that extended to at least a further two million premises.

As part of the contract, JHG will be responsible for construction tasks including surveying, building, testing and supporting Openreach to commission the network so that customers can place orders.

Kevin Murphy, MD for fibre and network delivery at Openreach, said: “This is one of the largest infrastructure projects in the UK today.”

JHG is already recruiting people to help deliver this project and Openreach will also be offering training.
