Who are our Fibre Engineers?
They’re the technical gurus who splice and test fibres across our expanding network. Hardly any other companies have their own in-house fibre engineering teams, so they’re one of the things that makes Virgin Media truly special.
Get end-to-end exposure
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. The aim is for you to develop the skills and experience you need to progress into a permanent field-based role.
Supercharge your skills
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. You must have a full driving licence along with great communication and team-working skills. If you also have previous experience of safe working at heights and with hand and power tools, even better.
