Telecoms is fast becoming the most exciting industry to join. It offers the security you need and the chance to make an impact on your community. It’s an industry that’s growing fast, with no sign of slowing down. and CityFibre adopts the same mission for its employees and the communities they work in. We’re creating a life in full-flow.

  • Collaborating with the Policy and Regulatory team to ensure alignment in messaging, supporting policy initiatives, and helping to maximise our position with MPs/MSPs and government officials

What will you bring to the role?

There are lots of things which make up a great Area Manager, but some of the things which will help to make sure you really thrive in this role and we’re hoping you can bring with you to CityFibre are:

  • Experience in B2B account management
  • Working knowledge and experience in local government
  • Proven stakeholder management experience
  • Telecoms market awareness
  • A communications, marketing or PR background
  • Media trained

If you’ve just found yourself nodding and thinking, ‘I can do that!’, things are about to get exciting.
