Because of the nature of the work we do, this role will require security clearance. Don’t worry, a member of the Early Careers Team will talk you through this.
What you’ll be doing
Our Digital Support Technicians play a key role looking after our bespoke communications networks for some of our clients that help keep our country safe. You’ll be helping to manage the support and development of global and highly complex voice and data platforms solutions, following the ITIL service operations model. We can’t tell you too much more about what it is you’ll be doing, as a lot of the work we do is highly sensitive and secure, but – in our opinion at least – it’s really exciting.
Your day-to-day work can range from troubleshooting network faults to completing customer and internal work orders, to system administration, project support and migration support. You’ll also carry out tasks to help install and commission various types of new equipment and technologies within our various bespoke platforms – it’s all in a day’s work for you.
We’ll get you trained in the use of cutting-edge technologies to remotely diagnose and support various types of platforms across a variety of different networks. The variety of technologies that we cover open the doors to learn and develop your own personal skills portfolio, so you can become an expert in the things you like doing. You’ll learn to prioritise effectively and to solve problems, using your own initiative to get things working in the most logical and efficient manner. It’s key you avoid any network downtime, and make sure you always put the customer first.
Our Support Technicians have a really unique role in keeping our country connected. Not only will you be faced with a different set of challenges every day, you could be tackling those problems in different ways too.
Once you have completed your apprenticeship, you will become part of a dynamic team of dedicated support engineers supporting one of BT’s biggest customers globally.
This job is available in the Enterprise part of our business.
