Principal Technician (Fibre)

Do you enjoy working with a down to earth, supportive team but at the same time be relied on to use your own initiative to find solutions to problem out in the field? Our Field teams are critical in the delivery of our contracts, whether that is delivering or supervising maintenance, installation, cabling or civils works.

This will all result in a clean handover for all products that Openreach deploys through Telent and in turn we then engage through our delivery partners.
  • You’ll also play a primary role in the ongoing relationships we have with local authorities, since they’ll be key to the delivery and coordination of the works. Using your excellent communication skills, you’ll keep both internal and external parties informed on progress. This could involve attendance at meetings and site visits when dealing with customer complaints or disputes.
