One connection at a time – safely

Mobile installers work at height in demanding conditions, and the importance of safety cannot ever be overstated. It’s why we pride ourself on an exceptionally strong safety culture, where the health and safety of employees is always our number one priority. Our operations and safety guidelines are based on stringent contemporary safety laws and regulations. Put simply, we take care of each other.

Before any work is undertaken on a mast, thorough risk assessments are conducted, and strict adherence to safety guidelines is maintained throughout. We equip our team with the necessary tools and protective gear, and emphasize the importance of teamwork in ensuring everyone’s safety. Climbing the mast is always a voluntary decision.

All of our mobile installers undergo comprehensive safety training and certification, covering safe practices for working at heights and utilizing personal fall protection equipment. We also offer ongoing training opportunities to ensure our team remains up-to-date with the latest safety standards. A valid medical certificate is required for obtaining a mast work permit.

The diverse tasks of a mobile installer

Our mobile installers work as part of a team responsible for the installation and maintenance of wireless data networks. Every day is different and tasks vary from equipment installation and mast work (including link, base station, switch, and backbone equipment installations) as well as maintenance tasks.

Other tasks include:

  • Installation, commissioning, and documentation of base stations and antenna networks
  • Maintenance and troubleshooting
  • Configuration of base station equipment
  • Installation of backbone and transmission equipment
  • Civil works
  • Network measurements and fault repairs

If you’re curious and love learning about new new technologies, becoming a mobile installer at Voimatel could be the perfect fit. The work and the environment is varied and often completed ontop of tall mobile masts or rooftops. Just think of those breathtaking views! Our mobile network masts range from tens of meters to over 100 meters, and sometimes as high as 300 meters. 

There are plenty of opportunities to be outside, enjoying the diversity and beauty of nature and you’ll find transportation and tasks changing with the seasons.

Typically, mobile installers work in groups of 2-4 people at each site, although sometimes we may have larger teams for more complex jobs. Given the nature of the work, especially when tackling urgent troubleshooting tasks, working hours can be flexible.

Mobile installer training and skills requirements

To become a mobile installer, you need vocational training in telecommunications or electrical engineering, or similar qualifications. It’s not just about the books though—the role demands expertise in base station and device technologies, as well as suitability for working at heights. A B(E) driver’s license is also required.

In addition to professional skills, working at the top of masts requires good physical and mental fitness. Most masts are climbed using safety harnesses and other equipment, with elevators only available on the tallest structures.

To become a mobile installer you’ll need a valid written mast work permit. This permit requires passing a security clearance check conducted by the authorities (Tursel/Criminal Record) and needs to be renewed regularly on completion of mandatory training. We offer our own training as well as working with selected partners, to ensure our mobile installers are always up-to-date with what they need. 

Technology is constantly evolving, and as a strong team, we work tirelessly to stay on top of these changes. We listen to our customers’ needs and adapt to the ever-changing environment. It’s important for our mobile installers to have a genuine interest in maintaining and developing their skills, and you’ll find plenty of opportunities to do this working with us. 

Finally, we pride ourselves on being positive and proactive and approach everything we do with effective communication and mutual respect, whether it’s within the team, with other departments, or with clients, end-users, property owners, and subcontractors.

Our mobile installers are Voimatel’s everyday heroes – they’re great listeners and always find the best solutions, no matter what the job throws at them.

Becoming a mobile installer through internships and apprenticeships

If you’re interested in becoming a mobile installer but do not have any experience in the field, our internships could be the perfect solution. We’re seeking people who are capable, curious, and as excited by our mission as we are. 

You’ll have the opportunity to learn and develop from our most experienced team members, combined with the latest technology such as VR goggles, where you can climb masts virtually.

Candidates selected for training as mobile installers must pass the fitness and health checks required for mast work.
