This post is part of the exciting 5G Testbeds and Trials Programme, using cutting edge mobile communications technology to improve people's lives and encourage growth in the UK. This currently has over 30 projects in progress, including Green Planet with David Attenborough, projects looking to support augmented reality streaming to vast audiences in stadiums and from music festivals, supporting improved Health and Social Care outcomes in Liverpool and Birmingham, supporting farming, tourism, and safety at sea and from flooding in rural areas and productivity improvements in car and aerospace factories. However, no previous experience of working in high technology or telecommunications is required.
The job title is Recruitment and Onboarding Support Officer and covers both recruiting and supporting the onboarding of staff to manage the Programme's exciting projects. This role is available as part of the 5G Testbeds and trials (5GTT) Programme's Business Operations team.

The other side of the role is to help those people recruited to be properly onboarded into 5GTT as quickly as possible. This requires helping them and the vacancy holder through the different processes each recruitment route requires and ensuring they have the equipment and information they need.
