The primary responsibility of the Senior Transmission Planning Engineer is to ensure transmission plans are delivered on time, to budget and meet agreed specifications.

A great role and a very exciting, once in a decade time to be joining MBNL as we move our shareholders to the next phase of their network evolution.

Requirements to be successful in this role:

  • Telecommunications or Electrical Engineering background
  • Significant knowledge of transmission technologies (both leased line and radio) design knowledge and experience including SDH, ATM, Ethernet & IP technology
  • Hands on experience of transmission planning and circuit planning tools in creating transmission solutions.
  • Strong knowledge of the 2G/3G/4G Mobile Transmission Networks
  • Knowledge of 2G, 3G, 4G RAN design and core network architecture
  • Optimisation of capacity and performance of transmission networks
  • Experience in a Network Operator or Managed Service Provider environment
  • Demonstrable experience of project delivery on time and to customer satisfaction
  • Ability to respond flexibly to design challenges arising from the Acquisition and Implementation processes.

We are happy to consider flexible working arrangements, whether that's a 4-day week or core hours and we already strive to achieve the right balance for our people through remote working.
