BT Trainee Openreach Engineer in GBR, United Kingdom

We’re looking for people who are:

  • Able to make a connection with our customers in their workplaces and homes.

  • Happy working outdoors. Whether it’s glorious sunshine or bracing British weather, our engineers are out connecting people.

  • Open to new technology. Nothing too scary and we’ll always support you, but you need to be comfortable using smart devices and ready to learn as new tools emerge.

  • Ready to give their best. The sort of person who always sees a job through and takes pride in doing it properly.

  • Physically fit. You don’t need to be a marathon runner, but will need to be fit enough to safely climb a telephone pole and carry a ladder.

  • Prepared to roll up their sleeves. Working in the great outdoors on our network means getting your hands dirty from time to time.

  • Able to manage their time as well as their workload. This is critical, our customers rely on us and we need individuals who are truly committed to delivering service.

What does an engineer do?

As one of our engineers you could be responsible for building our network, or installing and maintaining broadband for our customers – covering residential customers as well as businesses on behalf of a variety of communication providers.

This isn’t an office job so you won’t be tied to one location. Instead you’ll be on the road, in your van and out in the fresh air. You’ll be visiting lots of different places and working in all kinds of buildings including our telephone exchanges – our central hubs for connecting customers. You might find yourself working at a street cabinet, up a telegraph pole or in the customers’ premises. The type of work you’ll be carrying out will be physical, for example you might be required to climb a telegraph pole and work at height.

This is a customer focused role so quite a lot of the work is done alone, but you’re never really alone as you’ll be interacting with customers, getting together with your team and there’s always people for support at the end of the phone - from your manager and team mates to dedicated teams there to help.

Entry requirements

Although we don’t require any specific qualifications, we do require candidates to have a good level of Maths and English skills, which will be tested during the application process.

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.
