The recovery of IT & Telecoms opportunities

Demand for IT and Telecoms staff has recovered substantially since the sharp decline brought on by the recession and, on average, there were approximately 116,000 advertised vacancies for IT and Telecoms staff during each of the four quarters of 2011 compared with just 82,000 during 2009. (E-skills UK Sector Skills Council Ltd 2000-2012)

The constantly evolving technology and equipment requires skilled technicians to install, test and maintain the products and their systems.  Telecommunications is all about connecting people quickly, efficiently and reliably and advancements in technology need to be met with unparalleled service levels and up time.  By delivering quality telecoms training, we can open up many more business opportunities within the sector in terms of up-skilling existing skills and developing a new telecoms workforce which will provide more employment opportunities within the UK with the roll out of superfast broadband.

As a member of the Armed Forces, you are ideally suited to these roles as you can utilise and draw on your existing transferable skills, you are flexible, adaptable, quick to learn and also have an eye for attention to detail.  

“CableCom keeps abreast of breaking industry events, in order to meet current and future needs” 

CableCom Training also works with the telecommunication sector and key partners to develop training, qualifications and awards that meet industry needs.  Most recently CableCom Training and Utility Services Ltd (USL) have entered into the establishment of a new and exciting training partnership arrangement. USL and CableCom Training have been granted approval as a certified Carillion telent (Ct) training provider in the delivery of formal awards and Ct approved training in overhead copper and fibre network installations, the skills learnt are vitally important in the rollout of super-fast broadband delivery across the United Kingdom as we move forward into the expansion of the digital era.
