Trainee City Planner - Swindon

Job description

We’re looking for people to join our brand new Planner Academy. Starting in September, you’ll complete a six-month immersive training programme of classroom and in-the-field learning, where, as part of a cohort of trainees, you’ll learn how to design and deliver our best-in-class networks. The programme will empower you with deep network planning knowledge, giving you the skills and experience to quickly progress to an Associate City Planner, where you’ll take ownership of the project management and collaborate with our Designers to deliver the best digital infrastructure possible.

A rewarding career

We’re passionate about our work and we’re passionate about our people too - when you join the CityFibre family you’ll receive a starting salary of £22,500 and 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.

The support to succeed

When you join the CityFibre family, you’ll get all the support and opportunity you need to grow your career, learn new skills, and fulfil your potential. You’ll work on a personalised development plan tailored to your role and ambitions, that will help you expand your knowledge and reach your goals. Your Line Manager will help you understand how CityFibre operates, and you’ll partner with a Mentor who will support your progression.

If you’re interested in exploring Management-level opportunities, you can apply for our highly successful Aspiring Managers Programme and fast-track your career. In addition to this, you will join our early careers community, where you’ll meet, network, and socialise with other CityFibre graduates. With our entertaining social events and exciting networking opportunities, you’ll feel part of the CityFibre family in no time.
