Here at VS Group, we are passionate about providing career opportunities within the fast-paced telecoms industry.  We do just that with our in-house Telecoms Engineer Traineeship Programme.  This initiative was created to ensure that our engineers are trained up to our own exacting standards, so that the charities we work with receive only the best service, which is good news all round!

Daniel Cure has been partaking in the VS Group Telecoms Engineer Traineeship since he joined us back in December 2016 and is currently halfway through.  He decided to apply for the programme when he desired a career change from his previous profession in construction.

Daniel said “University wasn’t for me and the VS Group Telecoms Engineer Traineeship Programme has been an amazing alternative to help me move towards the career of my dreams.  From my own experience, I really feel like VS Group invests in its people, which ensures that the charities we work with receive top quality service”.

Daniel recently sat his OSF Samsung Foundation course and  subsequent exam, which he passed with flying colours, scoring the second highest in the class.  The course comprised of imparting an intermediate understanding of telephone systems, rendering him able to independently carry out telephony installations.

During the year long programme, trainees undergo several relevant training courses; Daniel will also shortly be partaking in another course, to fully induct him on voicemail services, as part of his ongoing training.  He has learned a wealth of skills so far, including phone system installation, internal and external cabling, programming both remotely and on site, end user training and troubleshooting.

Daniel accompanied by his mentor, Jim Yelland, VS Group’s Head of Technical Engineering and Operations.

Daniel said “This traineeship has exceeded my expectations. I get to do a diversity of different things and have worked on a whole array of installs. I find the work highly rewarding and I take great pride in the work that I do for VS Group, helping charities.   I wouldn’t think twice about recommending this traineeship to anyone else who is interested in starting a new career in the telecoms industry”.

Jim Yelland, our ‘Platinum Accredited’ Head of Technical Engineering and Operations leads VS Group’s Traineeship Programme, having trained a dozen engineers himself throughout his professional career, who now work across the globe.

Jim said “I have seen Daniel go from strength to strength during his training so far; his confidence has grown so much!  He has limitless potential and I am proud to see him take to his new skills so naturally”.
