Trainee engineer roles


[link to this post]
 
Evening everyone, after the virtual assessment day couple of weeks ago, I have received the call with a start date for 28th of June as a service delivery.
Anyone here working as a service delivery, Id like to know how it is like on day to day basis please?
I have no idea about the difference between all the roles and which one is better? Any ideas?
I read somewhere service delivery do a lot of climbing, is that true as I thought service delivery engineers mainly fix and install broadband on premises

Service delivery bods do a little bit of most things.... once they have acquired a full range of skills.

To start out it’ll ‘cab only’ VDSL work, known as an SI task, that and basic provision of lines.
Maybe some exchange jumpering.
Usually the next skill is FTTC faulting visits , SFVA jobs.

Then it’ll be UG work. Maybe ADSL faults.

There’s climbing to be done for lots of activities.

There are plenty of other things to become skilled at, niche products like ISDN, PW repair, track and locate, REIN, etc, etc.

The more skills you have, the more varied your day might be

SD are ‘FTTC engineers’

I’d guess that FTTP has more mileage in it. But it is possible to have ALL the skills.

Hi mate,

First time posting for a while - I’ve been waiting a while but had confirmation that I’ll be starting SD on 28th June too!

See you there!

Hey mate,

I may be wrong but this is as I understand it, working at customers houses installing services. Working at cabinets, up poles and underground (after further training). Fault finding and maintenance on the (copper) network.

I could be wrong but I believe this is the basis of SD, I was told job roles may change depending on the needs of the business but as we’re both set for the same date I’d say it’s a safe bet it won’t as our group is set to go
