Rural broadband provider Quickline moves to new East Yorkshire HQ

Quickline's new HQ

Rural broadband specialist Quickline Communications has opened its new headquarters in East Yorkshire, signalling a huge expansion for the company.

Quickline has already more than doubled the size of its workforce this year to over 130 people and has plans to double that again over the coming year. The move comes after the complete transformation of three buildings in Willerby into the new office space.

Chief executive Sean Royce said: “This is such an essential and positive move for us. Having grown so quickly, we simply didn’t fit in our previous offices anymore. Albion Mills is a much bigger space, is easy to get to and allows us to manage our next recruitment phase more easily. It is about investing in our people, making them proud to work for Quickline. Since the pandemic, we have developed a flexible working approach and we want people to continue to work from home, but also to have a dedicated workspace where they can collaborate. Indeed, for many of our people, it will be the first time they have met their colleagues in person.”

The move comes a year after new owners, Northleaf Capital, invested £500m into the business, allowing Quickline to accelerate plans to bring lightning fast broadband speeds to over 500,000 homes and businesses in rural communities where a significant digital divide still remains.
