What is a Planner

Our Planners are essential to the success of our projects. They oversee the build of our network, check it’s been planned correctly and make sure our final designs reflect the final build and any adjustments we had to make along the way.

Our Planners receive a starting salary of £22,500. Once you finish the programme you will become an Associate City Planner.

As a trainee, you’ll experience a blend of online and classroom learning, in-the-field training with practical experience and formal assessments, plus expert support and guidance throughout. This is an immersive and highly experiential learning programme that will empower you with deep network planning knowledge, helping you fast-track your career at CityFibre.
