  • The survey results must consider, and factor in, multiple aspects including: deployment method (using existing and/or new infrastructure) and cost, speed and efficiency of build, wayleave and traffic management requirements, design principles and customer connectivity, adherence to business strategy.
  • Provide feedback regarding survey results to identify problem areas or improvement opportunities and ensure these are built in.
  • Ensure the final survey results are of a consistent quality, agreed, presented in a standard format, and reported back to the Fibre Planning team for inclusion in their plans.

Design stage

  • Work closely with the Fibre Planning team to ensure survey results are clearly understood and without ambiguity.
  • Scrutinise the high-level designs (HLD) to ensure they accurately reflect the survey results and provide the basis for an efficient network build. Provide solutions, not problems.
  • Validate the design in terms of financial, technical and timeframe feasibility.
  • Ensure the HLD is agreed with all stakeholders and meets the requirements of our Projects, Civils, Engineering, Networks, Sales and Marketing Teams.
  • Ensure the HLD is frozen at the point of agreement and put under strict Change Control. Changes must be kept to a minimum.
  • Work closely with the Fibre Planners and Project Manager to ensure the low-level designs (LLD) and job packs have not deviated from the HLD and provide the necessary detail, in a standard and consistent format, to move through to the Plan stage.

Plan stage

  • Arrange and lead a virtual walkthrough of the final design with the Project Manager, Civils Manager, Fibre Planner, Engineering Manager and Commercial Manager to ensure clarity of the build details, roles and responsibilities and timeframes
  • Address any questions and stick to the plan. Provide solutions, not problems.

  • Provide regular updates to all stakeholders to confirm expected progress or, if an unavoidable delay, revised plans, and timeframes.

Essential Requirements

  • You will have a minimum of 5 years’ experience working on fibre deployment projects. You will be driven by achieving results whilst working in a complex but collaborative environment.
