Careers in Telecommunications

Modern Challenges. Modern Careers.

With more people spending more time at home than ever during Coronavirus lockdown, more services that require the internet and phone lines are being used. Services like:

  • Browsing and shopping online
  • Checking your emails
  • Watching movies online

All of this internet and phone use requires a telecommunications infrastructure to support it. This is the opportunity facing many companies in the sector and many candidates like you.

Creating these services is one thing but maintaining them is an entirely new challenge. That’s why companies such as Vodafone, Virgin Media, BT, Openreach and many more, have roles like Field Technicians and Network Engineers to support everyday infrastructures that members of the public, companies and Governments can use.

Most tasks in day to day life require modern technology to run

When you log on to mobile internet to check your social media, phone a friend, watch films online via broadband internet, you’re using services that companies have to set up.

Maintaining technology services is great for customers and companies too. With more users and customers, a business needs more technical staff. And that’s why, even during current circumstances, you’ll see companies like Vodafone, Virgin Media, BT and Openreach hiring candidates like you for these roles.

So, what does working in one of these companies actually look like? Below we explore what tasks two of the many telecommunications roles include.

Field Technician

Don’t leave home without your driving license for this job. You’re going to need it! And if you haven't got one, you should start working towards one.

You’ll often find Field Technicians out and about, travelling the nation to install and repair phone, TV and broadband product. You’ll meet plenty of people and even be able to share your knowledge you have, and your advice, to help them get the most out of their technology.

Network Engineer

When it comes to Network Engineers, instead of the customer’s technology they build and repair, it’s the company’s. Network Engineers are responsible for maintaining and building the physical network of cabling and cabinets that carry the company’s services form technical sites to the customers’ homes.
