Who we are

Installations & Network Engineer


Scottish Borders / North East England

Minimum salary £29,000 plus benefits including Premium private healthcare, enhanced company pension, extensive wellbeing package, career and life coaching, hybrid working and excellent work-life balance 

At GoFibre we’re on an exciting journey to revolutionise broadband capabilities for homes and businesses in rural towns and villages across Scotland and the north of England, connecting communities and affording them digital capability equal to their city counterparts; whilst being as environmentally conscious as possible, and creating social value in the areas we serve. 


Our story is only just beginning. We’re growing fast and we don’t intend to slow down anytime soon as we play our part in ensuring future-proof full fibre coverage. We’ve recently raised, and committed, a £164 million investment for our infrastructure, service and people through our top-notch partnerships, and we’re confident and enthusiastic about what is coming next for the GoFibre family, as we strive to connect hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses by 2025. We have fantastic offices to allow colleagues to connect and catch up, one in central Edinburgh (with stunning 360 views of the city) and another in the coastal town of Berwick Upon Tweed; both a short walk from transport links. 


How we work

Collaboration, innovation, commitment, continual improvement of our business and ourselves, are the cornerstones of what creates our collective success. No two days are the same; the landscape is constantly changing, and we think on our feet, move fast and tackle challenges and opportunities head on. We’re always learning, and we thrive under pressure, because we support one another and have some laughs along the way. We’re all in this together, as we navigate the road less travelled, pushing the boundaries of what we can deliver and the professionals we can become. We take care of each other and care about Worklife balance and wellbeing.
