Our client is responsible for carrying out the Planning and Design activities for a major network rollout in Norway, involving both FTTH and mobile technologies.

Integral to this work is the need for four Commercial/Contracts Managers to oversee the individual FTTH Network Planning and Engineering projects and one expert in Order and Contract Management for Telecoms in general.

Major responsibilities of these roles are:

1) Inviting contractor proposals for work packages, reviewing these and awarding contracts as appropriate

2) Management of external Contracts and Contractors to ensure satisfactory performance and results within time, cost and budget constraints

3) Careful and professional management of Change Requests to ensure effective delivery within budget.

4) Monitoring and inspection of contractor performance, and preparation of detailed reports on progress, risk and spend

5) Implementation of corrective measure as appropriate in collaboration with the Project Manager

These are likely to be long contracts on one of Europe's largest network transformation projects, which will focus on state of the art network technologies and services, based on FTTH and LTE platforms.

Desired skills and experience for these roles are:

1) Experience of Commercial, Supplier and External Contract Management on network planning and design projects in one or more of the following areas:

FTTH Network Planning

Civil Works/Power Installations

RF Network Planning

2) Strong Commercial & Contract Management skills, particularly in regard to the preparation of detailed ITT & RFP documentations, and contract negotiations

3) Good technical understanding of Network Planning principles and practices

4) Knowledge of Norwegian language or previous work experience in Norway would be an advantage, but is not necessary

5) Candidates must be EU citizens, or carry EU visas that are valid until after December 2012

Please apply with your CV and a very brief summary outlining your overall experience within Commercial/Contract management and Change Management on network planning/implementation projects.

Thank you,
