Powerful, gigabit-speed connections that enable people across entire communities to enjoy life in full flow. To do this, we make sure that our people’s voices are heard, their ideas are welcomed, and everyone is given the opportunity to make a real impact.

What you can expect from us

Everyone at CityFibre has an important part to play, and we reflect that in our benefits. With a competitive salary depending on experience + a car allowance, when you join us, you’ll also enjoy 25 days’ holiday, a day off on your birthday, a day off to support a charity or organisation of your choice, a performance-related bonus scheme, and private healthcare.

How you’ll change it up

Working as one of our Area Commercial Managers, you’ll support the commercial and contractual management of a portfolio of telecoms projects which will include new builds, city enhancements, BDUK government contracts, and field service frameworks. You’ll be ensuring that our operations and service delivery are fully protected under the contract terms and comply with the relevant statutory requirements e.g., Construction Act. Day to day, this is what you can expect to be doing:

  • Managing the commercial resources of your assigned projects, from planned expenditure through to placement of control of contracts
  • Supporting the authorisation and submission of project variations
  • Assessing, reviewing and mitigating commercial and contractual risks
  • Providing commercial and contractual expertise to contracts, including producing and submitting valuation certification, drafting and issuing correspondence, claims, budget monitoring and producing contract/workstream performance data
  • Providing robust, timely and accurate cost and value data at both project and regional level
  • Coaching, developing and mentoring junior members of the team

What you’ll bring to the role

It’s important that you have solid experience in senior commercial management and the procurement of contractors, with working knowledge of NEC3 ECC forms. Ideally, you’ll have a background in telecoms, civil engineering or utilities. You’ll also bring some of the following to the role with you:

  • Significant Quantity Surveying experience
  • Effective negotiation with suppliers and partners finding alternate solutions and outside the box thinking to resolve issues within the contractual terms
  • Experience overseeing large capital expenditure projects.
  • Ability to use data to provide financial reporting with actionable insights and strategic focus
  • HNC/HND level education, or equivalent

We’re looking for people who don’t settle for ‘good enough’ and push things forward. If you’ve just found yourself thinking, ‘I’d love to do this’, we want to hear from you. Let’s change it up.

Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging

Our people have a wide range of experiences and perspectives – and it’s this diversity of thought that makes us who we are.

CityFibre is working hard to change up the telecoms industry. This means we’re committed to providing equal opportunities to people from all backgrounds and commitments, including your carer and family status, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, gender and gender identity. We’re also offering training programmes and placement opportunities to support the skilled, career changers, service-leavers, and returning workers to become part of our teams.
