Business communications specialist NGC Networks has signalled its intention to grow its North West presence with the opening of a new office and the creation of ten jobs.
Wakefield-based NGC opened the doors of its new office at Bury Business Park, Greater Manchester, this month.
The business has commenced a recruitment drive and has already appointed experienced mobiles specialist Alex Stephens, who brings a wealth of experience in sales roles with Vodafone, EE and O2.
Steve Tipper, head of mobile, is leading the recruitment campaign, which has an initial emphasis on NGC’s Business Mobiles division.
NGC Networks specialises in implementing telecommunications and internet connectivity solutions for businesses across the North of England, with a focus on the Northern Powerhouse.
Nikki Guest, director at NGC Networks, said: “We’re excited to announce our new office in Greater Manchester as part of a strategy to grow our customer base in the North West.
“Alex is a fantastic addition to the team and we look forward to welcoming a number of new faces over the coming months as we build our regional presence.
“We look forward to providing our quality service to even more businesses, drawing on relationships with the leading networks coupled with a personal approach, where we offer consultative advice and solutions, bespoke to customers’ individual needs.”
Alex started his career as a corporate account manager at O2, looking after the East of England, before joining the North West team of EE as senior business development manager during the network’s exclusive rollout of 4G.
Two years later, he joined Vodafone to hone his skills as a telecommunications consultant, covering all aspects of business communications.
He said: “Having spent valuable time learning within three of the UK’s leading networks, I have a wealth of experience that I intend to put to good use by helping companies to identify the right network for their workforce along with the best product offering and price. NGC’s partnerships with all three networks means I’m perfectly placed to deliver on this promise.”
Wakefield-based NGC is on target to achieve £6m turnover in this financial year, marking a 15 per cent year-on-year increase.
NGC’s expanding portfolio of clients includes Manchester-based Timpson, Maginus Software, Puma UK, Superbreak Holidays, mail order business Freeman Grattan Holdings, The Family Fund, and Sharp Business Systems.
NGC Networks is listed in the 2018 Northern Tech 100 companies.
