When a graduate starts with us we pair them with an experienced engineer who will guide and mentor
them through their initial period working on live projects. Training is arranged on our software
engineering tools such as wireless coverage modelling to ensure all our engineers have a full set of
design skills. Early work with us will typically involve:

  • Assisting in developing technical designs of systems including
    o Structured Cabling Systems
    o Active LAN and Telephony
    o Wireless Network Modelling
  • Attending meetings and workshops with other design professionals such as architects
  • Inspecting and monitoring installations, then formalising reports in written format
  • As you develop you will be expected to take on more responsibility in managing projects from
    inception through to completion.

As a small close-knit team, all team members work on whatever projects are happening at any one
time. As such, you will be expected to be a flexible individual, capable of working both within a team and
individually. Integrating into this team from Day-1 is paramount to your success in the role, so a
pragmatic approach to work is very important.

    Electrical and Electronic Engineering with honours.
