We are a UK based, full fibre provider that is rolling out a new 1 gigabit per second broadband network to homes and businesses across the UK.
With an average broadband speed of 64mbps, the UK is ranked amongst the lowest in Europe for its poor internet connectivity. Over the next 5 years, the UK government has set a target to connect a further 20 million homes to full fibre broadband.
We are a start-up team of innovative, agile, and driven individuals, looking to scale-up and achieve our ambitious plan to connect a million homes in the UK to our gigabit network.
Our founders built Vumatel, South Africa’s largest FTTP network (1.2m homes), and have brought these learnings to the UK. brsk has rolled out fibre to 30,000 homes in the UK in its first 10 months, making us one of the fastest growing Altnets in the UK.
What sets us apart? You do, we do, each one of us has a voice and collectively contribute to building brsk. If you are wanting to work somewhere you can have a real impact and believe you can innovate in a fast paced environment , then this may be the role for you.
This role is based in South Africa
This is an exciting role for someone looking to join a growing finance team and to be part of a company building a large-scale fibre to the home business. Reporting to the Senior Financial Manager, your key responsibility is to ensure that brsk’s financial information is complete, valid and that our internal processes and controls are complied with. You will provide quality support to internal and external stakeholders, with the ultimate goal of supporting the business with timely and accurate reporting and payments management. Other responsibilities include:
- Working closely with our external build contractors and managing the payables function from purchase order to payment.
