Job Description

The Role: Regional Project Manager (Telecoms Fibre Network Build)
Location: Home Based but North West, Yorkshire and North East
Package: £50-60,000

Overview:
We are looking to recruit a telecoms project manager to work on a regional fibre build programme on behalf of a telecoms / Internet service provider.

Working from home, or from a local office opening soon (Likely M62 corridor) you`ll be looking after different project sites around the area and supported by an operations team will take project delivery responsibility for FTTC and FTTH solutions on both existing HFC networks and new FTTP projects.

Your background will be project management in telecoms fibre / copper network build and you`ll be able to point to a track record of success within a NRSWA regulated environment.

This is essential, so a proven track record in telecoms civils / fibre build is a must. It is also a highly client facing role, and experience of working on or around HFC projects would be a significant advantage.

Responsibilities:

You`ll be leading the project team responsible for the network delivery of both fibre to the home solutions (FTTH) and also fibre to the cabinet so 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 / copper 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.
