Job Description

The Role: Project Manager (Telecoms Fibre Network Build)
Location: Home Based but covering Essex
Package: Upto £60k plus £6,000 car allowance and benefits

Overview:
We are looking to recruit a telecoms project manager to work on a national fibre build programme and specifically cover the Essex region. On that basis, you would need to live within easy commuting distance of Essex or ideally in the county.

Your background will be project management in telecoms fibre network build and you`ll be able to point to a track record of success within a NRSWA regulated environment and ideally, some exposure to the BDUK programme.

This is essential, so a proven track record in telecoms civils / fibre build is a must.

Responsibilities:

You`ll be working in the project team responsible for the network delivery of fibre to the home solutions (FTTH) and you`ll be responsible for the project management of the design, build and delivery of the cables in the group from the DP to customer premises.

This is going to be a fast moving, aggressive roll out so you should be well versed in a similar telecoms environment and you`ll be able to point to a track record of delivering on time and within budget.

You`ll act as the owner of Network Delivery on assigned projects internally and externally and will be responsible for the day to day management of the planning, design and build to the agreed design, budget and time scale.

Skills and Experience:
* Proven track record of the delivery of fibre based solutions.
* An understanding of the project life cycle linked to delivering a national ISP network
* Formal methodology background (Prince 2, PMP) combined with a think on your feet attitude that allows the project to be delivered on time, and within budget.
* Knowledge and demonstrable experience of project planning processes, techniques, methodologies, risk and commercial savvy.
* Stakeholder management, negotiation and conflict management skills.
* Ability to manage uncertainty and understand the impact of this on the project; proactive and forward-looking.
* The ability to push back when needed whilst keeping the customer happy.
* Understanding of business drivers and complex organisational designs.
* Knowledge of telecoms business planning and provisioning process.
* Ability to interact with technical engineers inside the business and non-technical customers outside of the company.

This is an extremely rapid growth environment with investments being made in the region of hundreds of millions. You'll need significant gravitas alongside the ability to interact with local authority and central government and will also be managing contract partners going up to tier one managed service level. It's a job for a PM that wants to influence and play a big part in how the service is delivered and while officially the company is an ISP, it's more of an infrastructure company at the moment hence the requirement for network build experience.
