The Opportunity
We are looking for an Engineering Manager to act as front line lead (reporting into the CTO) for all In building, DAS & Small Cell design and related work. The role provides an opportunity to join an established and highly regarded telecoms infrastructure company who are a key player in the wireless industry. Their small cell solution now leads the UK for the deployment of such systems connecting venues such as Sports Stadiums, Retail, Business & Commercial, Transport, Hospitality, Healthcare and Education as well as outdoor networks. This is the future of telecoms and with the increase in connected products, IOT and 5G networks, our client have been heavily backed financially to help build and improve their networks and have a strong future ahead of them which you can be part of. This role could suit a contractor who has been based away from home and wants to get back to working on a permanent basis in Scotland and could suit a manager that comes from either a telecoms OEM or well-known small works contractor.

The Role
The Engineering Manager (DAS/ Small Cells) will work closely with the sub contract I&C partners to ensure that their work is of a suitable standard. You will oversee all design and associated works and will blend technical acumen regarding cellular network design alongside contract management of the I&C contract partners. There will be a requirement for fully expensed UK wide travel for this role, estimated maximum of 2 nights at any one time and usually travel is around 2 nights per fortnight.

The Candidate
The ideal Engineering Manager will have a strong background in cellular or wireless network design and also have some good experience of management of sub contract partners. The role and company are very much hands on. This is a type of company where you are expected to be heavily involved in all projects and be expected to be a problem solver and self starter. We have experienced candidates in the past who look good on paper, but have had the support of a strong PMO doing a lot of the work for them. On this case, you will be the person who works to gets the job done without much direction so we need an all-rounder who can count upon the support of the CTO when required.

The Package
Salary around the £60k to £70k level with car allowance, pension (employee 3%, company 9%), health care (employee and immediate family) and discretionary bonus to 10% of annual salary subject to performance. As with all roles, it is the candidate that is important and we would be happy to discuss salaries in and around the above
