CSS Telecoms are a very different type of telecoms company because we, as engineers, think business telecoms solutions, rather than sales. As an independent, whole of market business telecoms provider, based in Frodsham, Cheshire we provide a full range of business telecoms services. We handle all billing and customer service requests from our purpose-built offices, which means that our customers never need to call BT. When new customers approach us, it is usually as a result of a recommendation from a happy client and this has led to a successful and growing company.

As a result of our growth we are now looking to offer a position to a Business Administration Apprentice to join our team and work in our Frodsham office.
