DIRECTORATE OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS
page 1 of 1
During its fifty-five year existence the Directorate recruited staff by various means, often through advertisements in national or regional papers covering the area where the vacancies existed. Sometimes, it would mount stands at recruitment or exhibition events that required additional careers information being published to hand out to persons interested in joining the organisation.
One such example is the six page A5 brochure in the following image gallery that was published in 1979. It was prepared by the Central Office of Information and Printed in England by Her Majesty's Stationery Office.

During the 1980’s the WARC changeout programme in particular brought about a need to recruit additional staff to meet regional and centralised staffing needs. It is thought that around the middle of that decade the Directorate commissioned an outside agency to produce a recruitment video for presumably showing at career days, seminars and exhibitions.
The video was digitised from an original VHS tape with a protective box marked CFL VISION Chalfont Grove, Gerrards Cross, Bucks. SL9 8TN
Clive Wankling for digitising the original VHS tape and including his personal comment that from memory the young lady in the video is an actress and the men were staff from London Region or Central Communications Establishment (CCE) Harrow.
