We are proud to announce that Ginette Kilroy, our Chief People Office, and Andy Train, our Chief Network Officer, are members of the trail blazer committee, which, along with other Industry leading companies, created the Cellular Network Field Engineer (CNFE) Apprenticeship Programme. This is a revolutionary step towards meeting the dynamic skill requirements of our industry.

This course is designed to ensure that a diverse range of talents can contribute to the future. We believe in providing opportunities for growth and learning, and that's why the CNFE programme is available to everyone across the country, opening up an exciting career path within the Telecommunications Infrastructure Industry.

This programme is set to create a new generation of one-stop, multi-skilled engineers – an industry first! 

We are really pleased to be partnering with the Institute of Telecommunications Professionals (ITP), who are supporting us to get this course live. The ITP have been representing the Telecoms sector for over a century and are excellently positioned to support us with this initiative. 

‘With the increasing reliance on cellular networks and the deployment of advanced technologies, there’s a growing demand for skilled professionals in the field. We are proud to be supporting the CNFE Committee to launch the standard across the wireless sector.’ Charlotte Goodwill, CEO, ITP

Join us in celebrating this progression, as we embark on this transformative journey towards a more skilled and future-ready workforce. Together, let's build a stronger foundation for the digital era!
