Fibre Engineer Level 4 Apprenticeship - London & Essex

Excel at all things fibre

Would you like to become a professional fibre expert? Want to continue studying, learning and working towards professional qualifications? Join us on our Fibre Engineer Apprenticeship Scheme and you can do both.

Get stuck in from the start

This is an opportunity to join our brand-new in-house fibre engineer team, who look after fibre splicing and fibre testing activities across our expanding network. Few other companies have their own in-house teams, so this is a real game-changer for us and for the industry – and hopefully for your career. The aim is for you to develop the skills and experience you need to progress into a permanent field-based role.

Build skills for the future

Over the course of the scheme, you’ll rotate through a series of placements, working with lots of different teams and suppliers so you can build up an understanding of how fibre works end to end. This includes learning how to:

  • Splice and test all fibre types
  • Plan a fibre circuit
  • Diagnose fibre-related issues
  • Read and work to fibre schematics
  • Provide quality control for contractor work

What we look for

Flexible self-starters who are happy working unsupervised and solving problems on their own initiative. Good communication and team-working skills are important. If you also have previous experience of safe working at heights and with hand and power tools, even better.

What’s in it for you

A great salary and some amazing benefits. Plus, the opportunity to add lots more skills to your locker and work towards an Associate Project Management Level 4 Apprenticeship.

At the halfway point of the scheme you can expect a salary increase to £23,000, and on successful completion of the scheme our apprentices typically move into roles with salaries in the region of £27,000-£28,000.
