Join the Openreach trainee engineering programme

We repair and maintain the UK’s broadband network, so that people and businesses up and down the county can communicate, stream, work and play. Join us and you’ll be a fully qualified engineer within a year.

Everyone's welcome

Openreach training

Whether you’re straight from school, just out of the Armed Forces, or looking for a change in career – we welcome everyone as engineers. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never done anything like this before – we’ll give you the best training in the business and teach you all the skills you need.

Train to keep the UK connected

This is no office job. You’ll move from home to street to office every day – and you’ll often work outdoors.

While training, you’ll get:

  • your own van and tools;
  • Health and safety training;
  • a mix of classroom learning and on-the-job coaching.

After a few months, you’ll be out in your van as a trainee engineer, developing your skills, with all the support you need.
