Ex Comet employee joins fast-growing local firm

Ex Comet employee Chris Baker has joined a fast-growing telecoms business following the collapse of his previous employer.

Chris joins Pure Comms after spending three and a half years working in IT Support for the former retail giant, which recently became a high-profile casualty of the long-running recession.

Chris, who is 25 and lives in Hutton, joined Comet after graduating from Exeter University with a degree in Physics.

At Pure Comms he will be employed as Customer Service Coordinator.

On his new role he comments: “Comet was a big employer in the area so it was a shock when it closed its doors.

“I learnt a lot whilst working there and wanted to join a company that was ambitious and work somewhere I could continue to develop, learn new skills and work in an energetic business environment.

“Pure Comms offers this combination and is growing incredibly fast. I was also impressed by the calibre of clients they work with. The future is clearly bright here and I’m excited about it.”

Chris has joined the company at a pivotal time. At the end of March Pure Comms will move in to impressive new offices, occupying 2,500 square foot.

Pure Comms’ new office will be located in Tickenham.
