Job Description

Project Manager (Telecoms Fibre Network Build)

Home Based but across Oxfordshire

Up to £50k

We are looking to recruit a Telecoms Project Manager to work on a national fibre build programme for a telecoms / ISP service provider.

Working from home, you`ll be working on different project sites around the Oxford county.

Your background will be project management in either telecoms fibre network build, utilities or civils 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.


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.

As a Project Manager you will have the following 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. Agile is the example but this is not a rigid and structured environment and you`ll be expected to adapt your methodology to suit the needs of the particular project.
* 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.

The Company
The Project Manager will work for a leading telecommunications infrastructure service provider.

The Package
Paying up to 50K
25days holiday plus 8 bank holidays.
