The Role

Optilan is looking for motivated Fibre Specialists to support exciting opportunities in our growing portfolio of Fibre projects.

We are currently involved in a number of exciting projects in Leeds, the Midlands and surrounding areas, which is where the roles will be based. These projects will expose you to leading engineering technology in a cutting-edge digital environment.

You will be joining and improving the collaborative culture bringing an Optilan mind-set to solving challenges and providing experience to the team. You will be employed as a fibre specialist, providing installation and testing activities to meet and exceed customer requirements.

The role will involve looking through the lens of continual improvement, with the opportunity to make a real impact on how we operate, whilst influencing and shaping the growth of our fibre business.

About you

We are looking for dynamic and self-motivated individuals with the drive and integrity to deliver a high spec performance.
