Ultra Fast Broadband isn’t just making lives faster, smarter and better. It’s shaping the
country we call home.
Now, we’re about to enter a new chapter in the story of UCG NZ – by partnering with Chorus to build on the great work we’ve already completed as part of stage one (UFB1). As we transition over to stage two (UFB2), we’ll be building new teams to set new benchmarks for delivery, quality, speed and efficiency.
And that’s where you come in.
We’re a company that’s going places. To maintain our momentum, we’re looking to partner with the best in the business. Although only 3 years old, we’re now the second largest fibre telecommunications service provider in New Zealand. We have got the energy, the resources and capability to keep growing.
Why UCG? Why now?
To get the UFB2 rollout happening on such a large scale, Chorus has consolidated areas and workflows across many regions to bring fibre to 200,000 more customers, in 169 more towns. Put simply, in addition to the great work we’re doing on UFB1, that means more opportunities for all of us now, and well into the future. Together, let’s create the next exciting chapter in our story – and your future.
General Manager Operations New Zealand
A short history of looking ahead.
Back in 1995, UCG started as a small Australian company. But our ambitions were always large. Today, with over 250 employees and around 900 delivery partners across New Zealand, Australia and the Philippines, we’re still setting new benchmarks for our innovation, experience and expertise.
And we’re not done yet.
Keeping Kiwis connected.
We entered the New Zealand market in 2014 in partnership with Chorus, specialising in design and construction for multi-dwelling units (for example, apartment buildings) to connect them up to ultra fast broadband.
We work across the length and breadth of New Zealand, and we’ll soon start connecting customers in late 2017 with the UFB2 project.
Ready to shape the future?
UCG has become renowned as the innovator within the market, and the go-to company for tackling challenges that our competitors are unable to solve. Given the scope of the UFB2 plans, and the ongoing UFB1 work, we’re now looking for employees and front-line Fibre and Civil Technicians to take us even further as Delivery Partners. We’re offering great opportunities across both North and South Islands.
A passion for people
We’re a team of passionate and diverse people – but we share a common vision; to provide the best UFB service in New Zealand. Now we want you to join our team. We’re looking for employees in a range of full-time office and field-based roles, including dispatch/scheduling, consents, land access, field supervision and technical training, as well as Delivery Partners.
UCG is visiting regional cities and towns in some of our new areas of operation in September 2017, so why not come and meet with us?
Our Delivery Partners are the frontline field force. Whether they specialise in cabling, blowing, surveying or technical work, they’re some of the best in the business.
What’s different about UCG?
We’re a bit different to some Chorus service providers in that we use subcontracting specialists – that we call Delivery Partners – to perform the end to end works – all supported by a team of UCG employees from Field Managers to back-end office administration.
Each Delivery Partner crew is typically made up of 2 people, a qualified and experienced Team Leader, supported by their crew person. But if you’ve got the ambition to grow, the capability, performance and dedication – we’ll give you the support you need. For you that could mean a higher income, more flexible working arrangements, and a chance to set up your own business. And whether you’re big or small, we’ll back you with a full induction process, supervision, and ongoing support and guidance.
