The Role – Field Installation Engineer (FTTP)

Location – Essex

Package – Salary in the range of £32,000 – £34,000 plus vehicle / fuel card, private healthcare & benefits

It’s been good to see FTTP as busy as ever and one of our key customers keeps pushing forward with full fibre build solutions across the UK, so this client side owner of the network are now looking to recruit additional field engineers to get involved on survey and customer connections around the Essex area.

You’ll report to the national field operations manager and working in a team, will be responsible for the final part of the customer journey, so FTTP all of the way from the access network to customer premises – residential and business.

The opportunity is going to be different to the vast majority of the field engineering roles on the market and due to the fact you would be joining the business at a very busy time, with the projects they have going on there will be plenty of opportunity for growth going forward for those with an eye to the future.

On that basis, we need to recruit people who will set the standard for others to follow, and working within a two person team, you’ll be responsible for all aspects of the install, and moving forward, for service as well.

You’ll get involved in the initial survey’s, and as the roll out speeds up, you’ll be the driving force behind lighting the customers up across the Essex area.

This is working on the client side, so you will be permanent, it is a salary rather than price work and you won’t be hammered by KPI’s. It’s a Monday to Friday, normal working week and everything is brand new so you won’t be working with old equipment, and you won’t be in a business with old school attitudes – “This is how we have always done it” definitely isn’t a phrase you will be hearing. Working day would be something like 8am to 4pm.

Who are you?

A residential installer with brilliant customer experience skills and a proven track record of installing fibre based cable into customer premises. This is FTTP but we are happy to talk with the area’s best engineers even if you strictly haven’t done FTTP – good engineers with HFC or FTTC can quickly be trained and it’s your attitude, personality and ability to contribute as an all-rounder that is key and the opportunity for you is that those engineers who join the business now, are in the driving seat by way of progression and moving upwards as this continues to grow.

Some fibre blowing / splicing experience would be perfect.

You’ll be NRSWA qualified and understand the specifics linked to health and safety. We need people who are ready to roll up their sleeves and get involved with all aspects of the customer install so that will involve everything from digging and pulling cable, all of the way through customer demonstrations.

Full driving license is needed and the ability to pass DBS checks
