Job Description

Network Planning and Optimisation Manager role

Essentially you’ll be the bridge between our more hands-on specialists and our Area Manager – you’ll be overseeing the work of a group of engineers (although you won’t have line management responsibilities). It will be down to you to deliver the best possible design, configuration and optimisation of our access network so that we can achieve the best network performance and coverage KPIs in the UK market. Your focus will be on delivering 2G, 3G and 4G radio design within the regional team, and in particular, you’ll be responsible for optimising our 4G service. That’s going to involve getting to grips with any existing radio performance issues in terms of network KPIs and customer complaints or site design weaknesses and coming up with solutions that will ensure we always meet our performance targets.

We’ll need you to implement physical and software changes as well as carrying out visual inspections on site and undertaking technical reviews with internal stakeholders and external partners, including suppliers and vendors. This is a very analytical role – you can expect to analyse our data, radio KPIs, and existing hardware and antenna configurations before coming up with proposals to drive improvements. Do well here, and not only will you be helping to make sure we achieve high levels of customer satisfaction, you’ll also be giving our marketing teams clear differentiators that will help to set Vodafone apart.


About you

With a degree or equivalent in an engineering or science subject, you’ll be experienced in radio design and coverage planning based on both desktop analysis and on-site technical visits. A proven track record in making physical implementation changes on a network is a must, as is a proven ability to drive improvements. We’ll want to see an excellent knowledge of 2G and 3G network architecture – 4G would be an advantage – and you’ll have proven skills in network optimisation techniques and processes. You should also be experienced in using network statistics and traces to analyse and improve network performance.

Because you’ll be making physical changes on the network your technical expertise is vital, but we’ll be looking for strong personal skills too. You should be an excellent communicator – someone who can convey complex technical information in a non-technical way. Meanwhile your sound stakeholder management skills mean you’ll be a natural when it comes to liaising with senior managers and external customers. A proactive problem solver, you can adapt to changing priorities, work on your own initiative and drill down into the detail to look at long-term trends and devise improvement strategies.

Although not essential, we’d love to see experience of managing projects, suppliers and products, creating business cases and using automatic radio network optimisation tools. If you can also bring skills in process definition and improvement, so much the better.
