January 2020 Start Date


[link to this post]
 
Hi All,
After nearly a years long wait, finally got my offical Openreach start date

Is anyone else starting in or around Jan 2020?

Also I've seen a Discord link floating around the forum but all seem to be expired,
would like to join as seems like a good source of knowledge for new starters

Hi, I got my onboarding email yesterday - my initial offer email said I would be based at Northwich on "FND/cabling" - and my first day is 24/02 at Northwich TE - I thought my first day would be at Yarnfield/training centre?

Also I have heard that your role is not confirmed until your first day at the training
centre?

Also would cabling be the splicing role which I believe does not include a van?

Any comments much appreciated as I don't have a vehicle so that would be a deal breaker?

Evening. Iím quite sure that your first 1/2 weeks will be at yarnfield. Iíve also heard that you can get a role change on day 1. From what Iíve looked at the cable role will be out in a van with a small team putting in the large fibre cables to the box. The fibre splicer will then come and connect the individual fibres to the box. As for vans and transport I couldnít say. A friend who has just joined has received a van. He is a cabler
