Tides Getting Here Clutha Attractions

Unifone is the largest privately owned Internet Service Provider in the Southern South Island.

Our means of connecting end users include the mainstream technologies but our point of difference is our ownership of our own “last mile” service, our Wireless Network system which covers most of Otago. Our customer base has grown quickly and we are looking for a friendly, enthusiastic and energentic technician to help us keep on top of our workload.

The role is based out of our Balclutha office but travel across Otago may be required as part of the job. Our team of support and field technicians have regular opportunities to work with new technologies and develop new skills.

In a usual week our field technicians could be asked to connect customers to our Wireless Broadband network, assist with the installation of DSL or UFB connections, work with one of our corporate clients or assist the repeater site team with the maintenance of a repeater or the installation of a new repeater. In between they might install WiFi access points within a home or undertake a special one-off networking job.

The position requires a person with the following attributes:

  • Basic skill set required is equivalent to a Sky/UFB installer
  • Excellent opportunity for a registered electrician to add IT, Data networking, Solar power and DC power systems to their skill set.
  • Full NZ drivers license.
  • Comfortable working at heights (NZQA approved training included in package).
  • Willing to work outdoors in all weathers if required.
  • Able to use a computer for email and online job management.
