Experiences of working as a telecommunication installer

“Voimatel’s strength as an employer is definitely the great team spirit. It’s nice how well I’ve been welcomed into the team, and as a new and young professional, I don’t have to stress about things.”

Tomi, telecommunications technician

“The best thing about this job, in my opinion, is the right amount of independence, being able to plan and handle things on my own. Of course, it requires being able to handle tasks responsibly and independently.”

Tomi, telecommunications technician

“In school, you learn the basics, but the real job, what it actually involves, how it’s done, what it entails, and the equipment and technology involved, you have to learn that on the job. The work is independent, but help is also available when needed, both from your own team and from other teams, reciprocally.”

Every telecommunications technician is important

At Voimatel, we forge sustainable and meaningful connections—not just between technologies but, above all, between people.

Humanity is at the core of everything we do. That’s why we are committed to continually maintaining and enhancing occupational health and safety for our team.

This includes ensuring proper work and protective equipment are used in operations, along with multiple protocols designed to minimize risks to employees or other stakeholders.

Telecommunications technicians must always adhere to our safe work practices and operating procedures and have valid safety training and licenses, which we can help you obtain during employment.

A significant part of the telecommunications technician’s work is done independently, but when a task requires climbing, there are always at least two people on the team.

The diverse work of a telecommunications installer

The work of a telecommunications installer includes the construction of telecommunications networks and the installation and maintenance of telecommunications equipment and systems in diverse environments from remote mountain villages to bustling cities. 

In addition to installation, there’s plenty of troubleshooting and maintenance work to keep you busy and challenged. As a telecommunications installer, you get to work in varied workplaces and with a wide variety of technologies, including:

  • Fiber optic networks
  • KTV networks, i.e. cable television networks
  • Mobile networks
  • Data backbone networks
  • Installation, maintenance and troubleshooting of connections and transmission equipment
  • Copper cable networks

Training and skill requirements for telecommunications technicians

To become a telecommunications technician, you need vocational training in telecommunications at the secondary vocational level alongside training in the electrical field, plus suitable work experience. 

Motivation for self-improvement and a willingness to learn are essential aspects of the job, especially regarding new technology and evolving safe working practices.

The industry requires several mandatory competency card courses, including workplace safety, fire safety, electrical safety, first aid, and roadwork safety, with associated training sessions held regularly. Voimatel conducts these training sessions alongside selected training partners.

But you’ll need more than technical expertise, training, and qualifications. All of our telecommunications technicians must have flawless attention to detail, teamwork skills, and a customer-oriented and responsible attitude. The work environment varies and may involve working on roofs, poles, masts, or elevated work platforms, so you’ll also need good physical fitness. 

This role includes independently managing tasks and close communication within the team and the organization, as well as with customers, end-users, property owners, landowners, and subcontractors. We pride ourselves on being positive, proactive, and respectful—you must have the same approach. 

Telecommunications technicians are expected to be flexible with working hours, be ready to travel, and hold a B(E) driver’s license. You’ll often be in charge of your own projects, which means you can plan your own workdays and find a work-life balance that works for you.
