BT- Telecommunications Network Fibre Planner

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


My family and I are looking to migrate to Australia as soon as possible, I have passed my TRA Skills Assessment:

Supervisor, Communications Tradespersons 4316-01

and my visa has been logged with DIAC, which I am waiting to be processed.


I joined British Telecom (BT) in September 1986 as a trainee Telecommunications Engineer on a full time contract. On commencement of employment I was under the supervision of a Senior Engineer who was a fully qualified Telecommunications Technician. I attended college on a day release scheme for three years to gain the National Certificate of BTEC – ONC in Telecommunications Engineering, whilst also gaining on the job training. This enabled me to become a qualified Telecommunications Engineer (Communication Tradesperson). All this training was carried out under supervision and to BT’s strict Health and Safety and Quality standards.

I have progressed through BT with promotions on the way, and I am always looking to improve myself for the benefit of the company and customers.

My current position is that of, Wideband Planner (Planning the end to end delivery of data / communications over the Fibre Network),

I have also worked within the Copper Network in the past.


I am actively seeking employment in the Brisbane area, and trying to find a company, who would be willing to Sponsor me (I am prepared to pay for the sponsorship visa, if anyone would be willing to commit to the sponsorship), with a view of a permanent position, while my visa is working its way through the system.

My brother and his family as well as my Mum and Dad are already residents of Australia near Cleveland, and we are looking to join them as soon as possible.

I visited my brother and his family December 2009 and we are returning again this December 2010 returning home in January 2011, we really appreciated what Australia has to offer us. It has really made us even more determined to migrate.

I am enquiring, if anyone knows of any employment vacancies in my line of work.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Kind Regards.

I now live in Brisbane (and used to work for BT out of Hong Kong). I don't know of any vacancies although I'm out of IT but drop me a line so we can set up some time to chat and I'll see what I can do to help - richard.moss@eborders.net

I would love to have a chat to see if there is anything you can do to help.

I dont know what would be best for you, but as I said in my post we are coming to Brisbane for Xmas and the New Year, and I would be more than willing to meet up with you for a chat, somewhere that would be conveinient for you.


Let me know what you think.

Hi there,


Not sure about sponsorship but congrats on getting this far and I am pretty confident you will find work, you may have to reskill in some areas (see URL below) but hop onto any of the following websites (seek.com.au, mycareer.com.au) to search for suitable employment and Google some key words (telco, fibre, wireless, Cat5e and Cat6 perhaps??) to find companies in the areas you are consdiering. Fibre, Wireless and general data communications is kicking off here in Australia thanks to the National Broadband Network (NBN) drive from the government. Google NBN Australia and see what comes up. nbn australia jobs - Google Search


You may need to re-skill and complete a TAFE course in AUSTEL, now renamed to Telecommunications Open Registration Course (Formerly Austel/BCL), course brief outline is available from this link but please note that this is a Victorian TAFE course so it may vary to that in other parts of Australia:

I work for BT on the NGA project as well (looking to move in April) and I think that NBNCo are recruiting a lot of people. Here's the link to their vacancies.
