Your department

The Operations team is responsible for creating a future Fiber to the Home network in Wallonia. To do so, we use a project and process-based method that enables us to work reliably and efficiently.

 

Your job

As Project Manager, you will be responsible to prepare, facilitate and overall coordinate the realization of a Homes Passed network. Eurofiber strives to deploy a Homes Passed network in municipalities in Wallonia, varying from 4.000 to 60.000 Homes Passed (living units) per municipality. You will manage multiple deployment initiatives at multiple municipalities at the same time.

The actual engineering and deployment of the physical network will be performed by our partnering contractors. It is your role to coordinate the preparatory activities beforehand and manage results and deadlines to make sure your contractor can start his activities on time. These activities entail the first operational alignment on our roll out plans with the municipality together with the contractor, and align on appropriate POP locations. Additionally you manage that internal colleagues create a High Level Design, and coordinate a team that is responsible for the inventory of Multi Dwelling Units (high rise buildings), perform site survey’s and align on the future deployment of network in these buildings. Once these activities have progressed at a certain point, the contractor will be requested to start the engineering – and follow up deployment process.

Our vision and belief is that each party in the delivery chain acts upon their best expertise and knowledge. It is this principle that leads to our turn key approach with partnering contractors. We expect full responsibility of their scope from them, and we expect you to facilitate, spar with and manage the contractor on milestones, results and deviations of planning/time/quality. With the support of our Network Design Engineer you validate detailed design assumptions, budgets and risk matrixes. During roll out you align on planning, communication with stakeholders and are a first point for escalations. Your main driver is to realize our targeted deployment plan within time, budget and quality, with the focus and ability to maneuver between time and budget goals, allow for solutions and ideas to continuously improve processes and procedures without losing focus on the overall result.

Additionally you will work with our Contract Manager and provide him/her with input and ideas on the performance of our contractors as we benefit largely and believe strongly in a good and productive working relationship.
