About the employer

We are based in an open plan office with a small communications room and a medium sized warehouse.

We provide wireless internet solutions in areas where internet connection is poor or non-existent, for example rural farming / building sites / out of town industrial sites and also for temporary events.

The engineers are expected to work all over the country and need to be as flexible as possible due to the nature of our business (which is reactive which can mean one day in the local area and the next Scotland with little notice). We are usually the final resort for a desperate customer.
