The Roles – Junior Telecoms Field Engineers

Location – Stoke on Trent / Staffordshire

Package – Salary £22,000 to start with real growth plans plus benefits.

The high speed internet industry is as busy as ever, and we’ve got a great chance for two new field engineers to join the Staffordshire based team for a rapidly growing international business.

As the first junior engineers joining the region, you’ll work with the senior engineers on the team and sit under the national field operations manager. You’ll be responsible for installing full fibre internet solutions to the local area and working with a lead engineer, will be the 2nd person on the team that completes the installation process, allowing ultra-fast internet connectivity to be delivered to the customer base.

The opportunity is going to be different to the vast majority of the field engineering roles on the market as you’ll be the first batch of their junior engineering programme, which will keep rolling out across the UK.

On that basis, we need to recruit people who will set the standard for others to follow, and while your technical background isn’t going to be the key at this stage, it’s more your attitude, customer experience and willingness to learn and absorb the skills you will need to build a long and fruitful career in the telecoms / internet industry.

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.

Engineers will be sharing a van in a team of two and work is around the Staffordshire / Cheshire area so we are looking to bring in people that live on the patch.

Who are you?

Someone who is keen to learn, with good practical skills when it comes to DIY and hand / power tools. Brilliant customer experience skills and the personality to match are crucial as you will be trained on the specifics of fibre based technology but this is a hands on tool, that will involve pulling cables, drilling holes through walls and the work is a mix of external and internal work and the show must go on in either rain or shine so sometimes in the winter, you’ll be battling the elements if the weather turns bad but of course, you’ll be given all of the appropriate clothing and PPE.

Any prior cabling or field engineering experience would be considered a bonus, as would an interest in technology, wireless networks & high speed connectivity.

You’ll have a common sense approach to health and safety but will be fully trained and sent on course like the NRSWA . 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.
