How can you change it up?
Joining our busy network planning team, you’ll be given responsibility from day one, so you can learn on the job, make an impact and start building your career in planning. It’s a key function in the business to help ensure we’re building fibre networks which are fit for purpose and future proof. Day to day, you can expect to be doing things like:
- Completing job packs
- Undertaking site surveys (with a colleague initially and eventually on your own when you’re confident to do so!)
- Documenting site survey findings through drawings and annotated photographs
- Monitoring Salesforce queues and highlighting failing tasks
- Supporting our local Planners by monitoring and maintaining larger scale projects
You’ll be a strong team-player who has the drive and ambition to build a career in network planning. You’ll also bring some of the following with you:
- Excellent interpersonal and communication skills
- The ability to manage your time well and prioritise a varied workload
- A willingness to take on responsibility and learn new things
If you’ve just found yourself nodding and thinking, ‘I’d like to do that!’, things are about to get exciting.
