We’re building something special at Fibrus, and our team is at the very heart of it. 

We’re unashamedly selective in who we bring into our team – you’ll have exceptional ability, share our purpose, and quite simply love what you do! And you’ll feel the same about your next employer. You’ll want to join a growing organisation, to help mould the business and to have a real voice in how things are done. You’ll want to grow and develop your career and you’re looking for a business which will encourage you to be, and do, your very best. 

We can offer all of that, along with competitive base salaries, bonus/commission schemes and enhanced company benefits. 

THE JOB

Are you a recent graduate from a GIS or related engineering field?

We have an amazing opportunity for two self-motivated individuals with a keen eye for detail, who can work both on their own and as part of a team, liaising with both engineers and senior staff.

As a Graduate Fibre Planner you will be working on new and existing design projects as Fibrus rolls out its Fibre to the Home (FTTH) network across Northern Ireland. Working with the Planning Manager you will have responsibility for ensuring our design partners produce fibre designs that are compliant with our agreed network architecture guidelines and contain the necessary detailed information to ensure build and cost accuracy. Additionally, you will have the responsibility to ensure each area design yields the maximum number of premises passed possible within the cost guidelines for the project.

IS FIBRUS FOR ME?

At Fibrus, we put our people first! We are proud to be a company who encourage colleagues to do and be their very best. Our culture is focused on collaboration, growth and flexibility.

We invest in our people, offering colleagues benefits that improve their personal lives as well as their careers! So along with competitive salaries and an excellent benefits package, we also offer our colleagues benefits including mental health workshops, professional development support and private healthcare.

We encourage a supportive and inclusive environment, where everyone feels welcome, and we are excited to speak to potential colleagues who share our purpose!

WHAT WILL YOU BRING?

  • The perfect person may be a recent university graduate or trade school graduate who has experience in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Engineering (electrical, telecoms, architectural, mechanical, software, etc), or any other computer or IT based studies.
  • Telecoms experience is not a prerequisite and will be sufficiently trained by Fibrus personnel prior to the role fully commencing.
  • You will contribute to the culture of curiosity, commitment and collaboration demonstrating how they reflect the following attributes:
  • Demonstrable experience in use of a range of GIS software e.g. ESRI products, QGIS, etc. AutoCAD experience is also welcomed.
  • Proficient experience using Microsoft Office programs, Outlook, Excel, Teams, etc
  • Strong computer knowledge and troubleshooting mindset
  • Full driving licence highly preferable but not essential.

WHO ARE FIBRUS?

Fibrus are an exciting new telecommunications provider, founded and launched by Conal Henry (Chair) and Dominic Kearns (CEO) by securing backing from Infracapital with the single focus of being a “Full-Fibre” broadband company.

You would be joining a team of dedicated and passionate people who work super hard every day to improve the lives of those in our own communities by transforming the local digital infrastructure, starting in Northern Ireland, but we are very excited to be expanding our reach to the North of England as well!

Our mission is to bring full fibre to homes and businesses across the country, bringing next generation broadband services to those who need it most.
