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.

Be responsible for our fibre network

Fibre Engineers are the technical gurus who splice and test fibres across our expanding network. The aim of this apprenticeship 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 get to build up a full understanding of how fibre works, as you rotate through placements with a variety of teams. You’ll learn everything you need to be an expert fibre engineer including 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. If you also have previous experience of safe working at heights and with hand and power tools, even better. This is a field-based role, so you will be provided with a company van to enable you to perform your role and to regularly travel around.   

We’re 100% committed to having a workforce that represents every part of our society. So we’re keen to hear from candidates of all background and circumstances. The only barrier to applying would be if you didn’t have the right work in the UK and were unable to obtain it without our support. 

What’s in it for you

During the programme, you’ll work towards a Project Management Level 4 Apprenticeship, which is secured with a final assessment, as well as the association of project management qualification (APM PMQ). Plus, we’ve got plenty of benefits for our apprentices to enjoy, including: 

  • Company pension 
  • 25 days holiday 
  • Your birthday off 

...and loads more!

What is involved with studying for an apprenticeship?

Your apprenticeship is made up of learning on the job, but also gaining the academic skills to put into practice in your day-to-day job.  As a result, you'll complete the apprenticeship as part of a structured learning programme alongside working in the role. The learning programme is made up of a suite of modules and milestones and you’ll be required to evidence your work against these modules via tasks and assignments. For some apprenticeships, you may also undertake additional technical qualifications, which include studying for, and taking an exam. Once you have completed your modules and milestones, you’ll then move to your End Point Assessment (EPA) which is typically made up of an interview and a project. Once you pass this stage, you will receive your apprenticeship qualification with us.
