What you’ll be doing
Apprentice Electronic Technicians play a key role looking after our communications networks.
You’ll join a team that supports and maintains the internal network in our telephone exchanges, radio stations and data centres and be responsible for establishing and maintaining communications systems. You’ll do this using a range of different physical and remote tools, to install hardware and software. Your day to day can range from finding faults, to dividing cables between two digital distribution frames. You might also carry out tasks to install and commission various types of new equipment within our network buildings – it’s all in a day’s work for you.
You’ll be trained in the use of the cutting-edge technology we use to transfer data and voice over the internet; really at the forefront of what we can do in the telco industry. One day you could be maintaining electronic switching systems (this is the equipment that provides dial tone to your home telephone and routes calls), the next you could be working on the equipment and systems we use to transport data digitally over the fibre and radio networks. You’ll need to learn to prioritise effectively and how to solve problems, using initiative to get things working in the most logical manner, avoiding any network downtime.
