What is a Trainee Quality Assurance Engineer?
As part of a City Build team, you’ll deliver fibre networks to different communities in your area. You’ll play a key role in monitoring and managing our full fibre networks, providing vital support, overseeing the work done by our Build Partners (the people putting the fibre in the ground) and liaising with key stakeholders. All this comes after an intensive training programme that will set you up with all the skills you need to do this.
This role is all about staying organised. Making sure everyone stays up-to-date, and our projects are delivered to our quality standards, efficiently and on time. You’ll develop an acute attention to detail and apply it to every stage of our build process in seeing all projects through to the end.
It’s an essential job, which is why we’ll give you all the training and support you need to succeed and start changing up Britain’s digital network.
When you join us as a Trainee, we’ll manage, mentor, and develop your career. Throughout the programme you’ll build technical knowledge, gain field experience and get to work closely with people you can learn from – Planners, Project Managers and Build Managers. It’s a programme designed to take you from enthusiasm to experience, with all the help you need.
Support every step of the way
Our 6-month training programme provides everything you need to become a qualified Quality Assurance Engineer, covering the principles of network architecture, how we plan and build our networks and how we deliver our work safely.
From shadowing our experienced Engineers to completing accredited courses such as NRSWA (paid for by us, of course) you’ll be given the training, knowledge and support you need to succeed at CityFibre.
What do you need to apply?
The answer to this is pretty simple actually – nothing at all. No engineering experience, no telecoms experience – we’ll provide you with all of that.
We’re looking for people who want to kickstart a new career. Ideally, you’ll have studied a STEM subject, but don’t worry if not. All we ask for is lots of enthusiasm, a willingness to learn, great people skills and the desire to start changing up the way the UK connects.

Compliance Controls Manager

No two days are the same and it’s that variety and the challenges that come with it that keep me engaged day after day"
