Quickline Strengthens Commitment to Rural Communities with New Social Values Manager

Lincolnshire, UK – Quickline, the broadband provider dedicated to enhancing connectivity in rural communities across Lincolnshire and Yorkshire, has announced a significant step in their commitment to supporting the communities they serve. The company is set to intensify its community engagement efforts with the appointment of a dedicated Social Values Manager.

Quickline has a history of actively engaging with the rural communities where they provide services. This includes hosting and supporting community events, contributing donations and sponsorships to local groups and causes, and providing connectivity to community hubs. To expand and enhance their community-focused initiatives, the company has appointed Julie Holmes to lead and develop these efforts.

Julie Holmes brings extensive experience to her new role and has a strong focus on addressing poverty, unemployment, and inequality. She will oversee the implementation of the Quickline Social Impact Plan and coordinate all of the company’s community support activities.

Quickline’s CEO, Sean Royce, expressed enthusiasm about the appointment, stating, “I’m overjoyed to have Julie join Quickline – a company that has social values at its core. Quickline has already done an incredible amount of good work in isolated, rural communities across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire that might otherwise have been left behind. It’s now my mission to build on that work by ensuring we fully engage with all the communities we serve and support them by whatever means we can and help make a real difference to the lives of people living there.”

Julie Holmes brings a wealth of experience to the role, having previously spent 28 years at Leeds City Council, where she managed community budgets and formed strong partnerships with third-sector organizations and residents’ groups. She also held a stakeholder engagement and social values management role at construction company BAM Nutall.

The appointment of Julie Holmes reflects Quickline’s ethos that no one should be left behind in the quest for better broadband connectivity in rural areas. The company has a track record of delivering activities and events in numerous rural communities, including providing free internet connections to village halls and community hubs and donating IT equipment to residents and community groups. Additionally, Quickline recently launched a training and innovation center, further strengthening its ties with local schools and colleges.

Quickline’s Head of Engagement, Julian Chalk, emphasized Julie’s role in supporting communities and bridging divides. He stated, “Julie shares the Quickline ethos that no-one should be left behind and will now play a key role in making sure we have an even more positive impact on the rural communities we serve.”

CEO Sean Royce expressed his vision for the future, saying, “We have some really exciting projects coming up, which will make a real difference to the people living in those communities.”
