Are you passionate about all things ‘digital’, especially digital inclusion, infrastructure and innovation? Do you want to tackle digital exclusion and ensure that location is not a barrier to good broadband?

We are looking for a dedicated, enthusiastic colleague to work within our friendly and ambitious team.
