Openreach Engineer

Are you great at building and fixing things and do you have a passion for delivering great customer service?

If your answer is yes then a career as an Openreach engineer is waiting for you.

We’re looking for talented people to help us lead the way in building our national infrastructure and keeping the nation connected.

Our team of engineers are out and about every day building, monitoring, maintaining and repairing our network, so it really is a varied role.

There’s actually no such thing as a typical Openreach engineer. We’re made up of people from a variety of backgrounds and we’re looking for people with a wide range of experiences to join us. We’re ready to provide you with a world class training experience. You’ve got to be customer focused and willing to get stuck in and fix customer faults.

It’s not just a job we’re offering you, it’s a career with a tailored training programme as well as incredible hands-on experiences.

Don’t be put off from applying because you haven’t done something similar before, you’ll get loads of support and after the first year you will have achieved a qualification for IT, Software and Telecoms professionals that is made up of an NVQ, BTEC and functional skills.

The starting salary £20,000 and on completion of your first successful year this increases to £23,650 plus an on-target bonus leading to on target earnings of £26,015 and a wide range of benefits. If applicable you’ll also receive London Weighting (Inner - £3,380 and Outer - £1,670) and offshore outer Scottish Island allowances (£1,431). We’ll supply your company vehicle, tools and kit and you’ll also have great opportunities to gain promotions to a wide variety of roles.

Entry Requirements

Although we don’t require any specific qualifications, we do need candidates to have a good level of academic Maths and English skills.

You will also need a full manual driving licence with no more than 6 points, have a clear head for heights and be comfortable working in the great outdoors.
