Engineering Advanced Apprenticeship at BT plc
These roles will suit anyone who likes to work independently and enjoys the outdoors (in all types of weather). It’s also a great choice for anyone who loves a challenge and is prepared to drive regularly to perform the work required.
The field engineering roles involve entering business and residential customers’ homes and working within family environments. For both these scenarios interpersonal skills are really useful, as is the ability to be flexible and think quick.
Working in power, for example, overcoming power failures in the network, requires training in electrics where mathematics is a key asset. A grade B in GCSE Maths is a necessity. Apprentices seeking to work in radio and rigging need to have a good head for heights as some of this activity is carried out in various radio towers and other tall buildings.
Power, switch, radio and network roles are all of a specialised nature. They tend to cover a larger geographical area which means a ‘can do’ attitude is necessary to help make sure the whole team succeeds.
