Let us introduce ourselves. Zzoomm is something different. We're a new company bringing the Full Fibre revolution to towns and cities across the UK. We like to do things in a certain way – properly. That means doing the best job we can, giving the best service, & living life to the full.

Simply a better offer:
We're not a business that relies on self-employed contract trickery or zero-hours nonsense. We want people to be with us for the long haul. We understand that permanent work brings security – to you and your family.

You'll get a proper employment contract paid regularly, come rain or shine; an achievable quarterly bonus; paid holidays; pension plan (you'll be glad of it one day!) plus other health benefits too. It's potentially both a career and a life changing level of support.

The role:
To us, you'll be known as a Build Operative. You'll be at the heart of our network build: from digging trench lines to installing ducts for fibre optic cables to customers' premises, you'll operate state-of-the-art machinery, modern excavation machinery that's always tailored to the surface you're working on.

Whether you're using mini-diggers, chain-trenchers, rock wheels or diamond blade saws, you'll put safety and quality first. Building in urban and suburban areas where people live and work, you'll be the face of Zzzoomm as we bring our network to life.
