Fibre Specialist (ex-military)

38.75 hours a week (shifts, 5 days per week, Monday - Saturday)

Ex-military? Good. We’ve got a job for you.

Determination. Teamwork. The ability to thrive in fast-paced and quickly-changing environments. The qualities developed in the military are highly valued at G.Network. So, if you’re a military leaver looking for a job in London, fibre could be your next move.

G.Network is on a mission to upgrade London’s broadband, and we’re growing fast. Street by street, building by building, we’re installing state-of-the-art full-fibre broadband connections to give the capital the internet upgrade it’s been waiting for. 

It’s a project like no other and we're looking for great people to join our team. 

No fibre experience? No problem.

We encourage applications from ex-military candidates considering a career switch to fibre. Use your Enhanced Learning Credits to train in fibre, and apply to our Fibre Specialist Reskillship programme. If you’ve completed your CNCI Fibre and COPT courses with CNet training, you’ll be guaranteed an interview.

From our state-of-the-art Fibre Academy, you’ll get all of the retraining you need to carve out a promising new career as a Fibre Specialist.

With a year of experience, you’ll have the opportunity to earn £32.5k a year. If you’ve got the ambition, there will be a clear path ahead of you: Principal Fibre Specialist, Supervisor, Manager. 

Here’s what it takes:

  • A customer focus. Our customers depend on us. As the face of G.Network, you’ll need to connect with them easily and display our core values in everything you do. 
  • An appetite and aptitude to learn. You’ll need to dedicate yourself to retraining and give it your all.
  • A natural problem solver. You’ll need to be good at solving different problems for different customers in different places. 
  • Good at following instructions with excellent attention to detail. Fibre cables are smaller than a strand of hair so you'll need to work carefully, and follow detailed procedures.
  • A can-do attitude, wherever you are. You’ll need to be comfortable working outside in all weathers, at heights, and in confined spaces.
  • A full UK driving licence with no more than 6 points. 

We're not looking for any specific military or civilian experience, or qualifications. We’ll teach you everything you need to know.

If you're ex-military with fibre experience, please see our wide range of experienced Fibre Engineering career opportunities. You may also be able to apply under the Guaranteed Interview Scheme. 

Bring your whole self to work

G.Network is a diverse and inclusive company and we are proud to be an equal opportunity employer. Our network will serve Londoners in all their amazing diversity. That’s why we want our workforce, as far as possible, to reflect that diversity. We hire people based on their talents and what they can deliver as G.Networkers - not on their background, or their views on the best way to do the job.
