Can you develop the technical solutions our customers need?

Want to provide customers with award-winning technical solutions as part of one of the UK’s most free-thinking, fun-loving companies? Or would you rather continue studying, learning and working towards professional qualifications? Join us on our two-year Solutions Design Engineer Apprenticeship Scheme and you can do both.

Who are our Solutions Design Engineers?

They’re the ones who develop technical solutions for our largest and most complex sales opportunities. They work in close collaboration with sales engineers, sales representatives and customers, leading the solution all the way from design through installation to the customer’s first bill.

Let’s talk about what you’ll be doing…

Being a Solutions Design Engineer Apprentice puts you right in the heart of our wholesale business, where you’ll help develop technical solutions that meet the needs of target customers. Day to day, this will involve engaging with lots of different people, including customers, sales engineering professionals and members of our technical and commercial teams.

…and what you’re going to learn...

Solutions Design Engineers need to be able to understand and present complex solutions to technical and non-technical audiences. So there will be lots of opportunities for you to develop your communication and customer-facing skills. You will also develop knowledge and experience in a wide range of technical areas including:

  • Optical and Ethernet networking
  • Data (L1/L2/L3) technologies
  • Information Security

How are you going to get there?

We’re looking for logical and creative problem-solvers who are enthusiastic about learning and have a positive, practical approach to work – and if you also have knowledge of telecommunications, network infrastructure and network hardware, even better. By the end of the apprenticeship, your scheme mentor and workmates will have helped you add lots more skills to your locker, along with the experience and understanding you need to kickstart a successful career. Plus you’ll enjoy a great salary with amazing benefits from the start!
