FTTP Broadband Installation Engineers required – Based close to the York area with travel
Calling all telecoms or TV installation engineers seeking a new challenge!
Persimmon Plc is excited to be recruiting a new 2-person mobile installation team to work within FibreNest – the Group’s new internet services division. FibreNest delivers ultrafast, full FTTP (fibre-to-the-home) internet access to new-build housing developments across the length and breadth of the UK.
The team will primarily be responsible for carrying out full-fibre broadband installations into new homes and businesses across the Yorkshire area in order to support our rapid network expansion plans. It’s essential that the two-person team live close to York based on the current and future site locations
Who are we?
Persimmon is a FTSE 100 listed company which builds more than 16,500 beautifully designed new homes a year and across 350 prime locations nationwide. With an annual turnover of over £3bn, Persimmon is one of the UK’s largest and leading house-builders, committed to the highest standards of design, construction and service. We believe that our demanding quality standards and focus on innovation differentiate us from the competition, and it is this on which our reputation is built.
The main responsibility of the FTTP Installation Engineer will be to work effectively in a new 2-person team to attend pre-booked appointments and install FibreNest’s ultrafast broadband service into our customers’ new properties. This includes the installation and repair of fibre-optic CPE (customer premises equipment) in both residential and commercial buildings as well as the installation and maintenance of FibreNest’s under and over-ground fibre distribution network. Other duties will include:
A good understanding or keen interest in UK telecoms networks and technologies is required as is a basic knowledge of electrical safety. We are ideally looking for candidates with 1st hand exposure of installing telecommunications infrastructure in customer premises as well as at the roadside and underground. Specific experience of fibre-optic installation, splicing and distribution would be particularly advantageous.
The role will involve liaison with site management teams and our new home purchasers – so strong communication skills and a genuine passion for delivering a friendly, 1st class customer experience are paramount.
Although previous experience is preferred we will be happy to consider applicants with experience in similar sectors e.g. satellite/cable television installers and electricians. Where this is the case, a full and comprehensive programme of on-the-job training and support will be provided. Such candidates MUST be able to demonstrate and evidence their positive approach to customer service and must be fully reliable, dependable and willing to learn new skills.
All candidates must be prepared and willing to undertake regular daily travel to sites across the Yorkshire area and further afield to attend pre-planned customer appointments. In addition, regular overnight stays away from home during the week will be required although the cost of this and reasonable expenses will be met by the company.
What’s in it for you?
This is a permanent role where a competitive salary, bonus and benefits package is on offer, including 23 days paid holiday per year (which rises during your first 8 years of employment), pension, life insurance and private healthcare. This is in addition to working in an honest, driven and energetic environment with the chance to work with some great people in a new and rapidly growing business!
The 2-person team will be provided with a company van, all necessary tooling and fuel card. A full valid driving license is required.
