The company is looking for engineers in locations spread across the whole of Scotland, from Orkney and Oban to Greenock and Galashiels, with a third of the posts based in the Highlands and Islands and North East Scotland.

Fraser Rowberry, general manager of Openreach in Scotland, said: “Millions of Scots depend on our services and rely on us to keep them connected. Across the UK, we plan to recruit around 500 more frontline engineers this year, as well as apprentices and graduates. I’m delighted such a high proportion of this recruitment will be in Scotland."

Fraser added: “We’re looking for people who can connect with customers, enjoy being out and about and are willing to get stuck in. They’ll help build and maintain our network infrastructure and deliver fibre products and services into homes and offices. These are high quality posts which offer engineers the chance of a fantastic career in a fast-paced, constantly evolving industry regardless of their background or gender.”

Whether you’re skilled in software, electrical or mechanical engineering, there’s never been a better time to develop your career in Scotland.
