Project Manager

Airband, a well-established Internet Service Provider is expanding! We have secured several £multi-million projects and are continuing to acquire more.

We are looking for an additional permanent Project Manager to support the implementation of our new high-profile expansion projects. You will utilise your excellent project management skills and experience to successfully liaise with the procuring authority ensuring the project runs on time and to budget.

Strong communication skills are essential and previous experience in engaging with local authorities/councils would be advantageous. You will be expected to manage the stakeholder and supplier relationships, lead a small project team, and further develop the organisation’s project management capability. As such a demonstrable track record of working within a recognised formal PPM methodology is required as well as experience rolling out FTTP.

Who are we?

Our mission is simple – everyone deserves better broadband. In 2009 we saw those with rural roots were dogged by slow speeds and inconsistent connection. Apparently, nothing could be done. But we could fix the problem! Our ambition was to build the largest non-urban broadband network for hard-to-reach communities across the UK. And over a decade later, we are proud to be a go-to specialist for reliable, rural broadband.

  • Use appropriate verification techniques to manage changes in project scope, schedule and costs.

  • Measure project performance using appropriate systems, tools, and techniques.

  • Report and escalate to management as needed.

  • Manage the relationship with the client and all stakeholders.

  • Perform risk management to minimise project risks.

  • Establish and maintain relationships with third parties/vendors.

  • Create and maintain comprehensive project documentation.

  • Assist with bid writing for the acquisition of new projects.

  • Management of the project team


  • Proven working experience as a project manager within telecoms / network build.

  • Excellent client-facing and internal communication skills

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
