Job Description

The Role: Fibre Supervisor
Location: Field Based in Southern England
Package: £35,000 basic with company vehicle, petrol card, pension, 25 days holiday and all tools provided.

Overview:

Are you a customer facing telecoms Fibre network expert who has the mixture of testing, fault finding, splicing & repair experience alongside some leadership skills?

If so, we are looking for a fibre supervisor to work for this telecoms company on projects across the South of England.

It`s a permanent job and would be field based with occasional visits (Probably one morning a week) to the company HQ near to Winnersh but aside from then, you`ll be the principle engineer & supervisor fixing fibre connection faults in the field.

You`d be the point of contact for the other engineers regarding escalation on technical faults and when you are not hands on, you`d be spending time with the other engineers in a coaching and development capacity.

It`s a supervisor role, but would mainly be hands on for now. However, this role is likely heading towards a future field operations management position so if you are looking for something that blends between cutting edge fibre technology, with the prospects to evolve then this could be for you.

In summary, you`ll manage the activities of your team whilst delivering specific KPI targets. As a field based supervisor, you will be expected to offer technical leadership with a responsibility for team success.

Short to medium term, there will be a requirement to complete an agreed number of fault visits a day within SLA`s and you`ll also be tasked to generally help the team to complete installations and projects when necessary.

Skill wise, we`d be aiming for:

*A detailed knowledge of telecoms fibre optic networks with knowledge of FTTC and FTTH being a strong advantage (But not essential)
*Expert level skills in fibre based network troubleshooting, splicing and fault diagnosis.
*Knowledge of the typical hand tools and equipment used in telecoms installations and construction.
*Good knowledge of fibre optic termination, installation and testing equipment. (Specialist tools will be provided by the company.)
* Leadership and supervision of field engineers in a KPI driven environment.
* Full driving license with 8 points or less.

This role is a field based, customer facing position, and will require travel across Southern England but this will normally be commutable on a day to day basis and if any overnight stays are needed, these will be covered by the company alongside the company van and petrol card.
