Company Description

We’re changing it up  

We’re on a mission to build the UK’s finest digital infrastructure and unleash Britain’s potential. Together, we’re achieving incredible things. We may have big ambitions, but we never lose sight of what matters. That’s why we’ve created an open, inclusive environment where people can be themselves, where wellbeing and mental health come first, where we take a flexible approach to working, and where everyone has the chance to pursue their passions, keep learning and grow their careers. We’re changing up Britain and we’re changing up the workplace with better rewards, more opportunities to grow and the chance to make a difference to communities across the UK.   

A rewarding career  

We’re passionate about our work and we’re passionate about our people too. With a salary of up to £60,000 depending on experience, when you join the CityFibre family you’ll also enjoy benefits like 25 days’ holiday, a day off on your birthday, a day off to support a charity or organisation of your choice, performance-related bonus scheme, and private healthcare. 

How can you change it up? 

The need for reliable connectivity in homes and businesses has never been greater, in residential streets our network keeps families connected and empowers many people to work effectively from home. In communities, we enable thousands of critical healthcare, education and council sites to keep looking after the people they serve. 

As the passive engineering lead, you will be facilitating a clear focus on the development of the CityFibre passive architecture so that its application delivers against our business objectives and strategic intent. Some of your key responsibilities in this role will include:

What will you bring to the role? 

We are looking for a strong leader that can motivate and set the direction for their teams to deliver against defined targets. You will need to demonstrate a proven track record in delivering successfully significant network-related projects. In addition to this, it will benefit if you have a good understanding of FTTH/P passive network architecture/components and industry trends. Alongside this, a solid business understanding with a background in business case production and supporting analytics is needed for this role. 

Our unique culture  

We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer; we celebrate diversity, we believe everyone has a voice and we’re committed to creating an inclusive environment for all. Even though we come from different backgrounds and do different jobs, we’re united by The CityFibre Way - our unique code of behaviours that inspires how we think, act and work. We back each other, think smart and act fast, and we’re passionate about giving it our best to build a legacy together.
