Designing Britain’s digital future means transforming the way the UK connects now and in the future, leaving a legacy for generations to come.
Skills and Experience
You don’t need any previous planning experience, but you will need:
- Excellent problem-solving skills
- A good head for numbers
- Great attention-to-detail
- The ability to learn and use new technology
- 5 GCSEs (or equivalent) at grade C or above (including Maths and English)
- A full UK driving licence
Your learning will be delivered in three key modules:
Understanding the plans our Design Partners create and learning how you complete Quality Checks on them to ensure they’re accurate, efficient, and cost effective.
During the build programme, there are always challenges we don’t foresee. In this module you’ll learn about updating plans and ensuring the changes made maintain the efficiency and cost effectiveness we need.
Once the build is complete, we need to make sure our plans accurately reflect the completed build. We need to know where every cable, cabinet and pole is throughout our network and the role you play here is crucial to that accuracy.
