Area Build Manager

£75,000 - 90,000 per year

Apply for this job


Now, more than ever, the UK needs a robust broadband infrastructure that can power growth, fuel business and support our communities. That’s why we’re delivering full fibre across the UK, building true Gigabit cities that will allow us all to live and work in a more flexible, smarter and more connected way. With a £4 billion investment programme underway and plans to deliver full fibre to more than 8 million premises, now is the perfect time to get involved.


You will play an instrumental part in delivering this vision. Accountable for both the mobilisation and subsequent build of multiple full fibre cities, you will provide leadership, relationship management and long-term strategic planning. Taking full responsibility for the key relationship between CityFibre and our infrastructure build partners, you will drive an integrated approach, ensuring that the performance, partnerships and productivity are consistently effective, efficient and in line with our delivery plans. This will include:

  • Developing and maintaining effective senior-level relationships internally and with build partners
  • Engaging Local Authorities and other stakeholder groups to improve delivery times
  • Providing effective account management to drive productivity and throughput
  • Achieving peak build rate per footprint without compromising quality

Our goal is to deliver at the pace that our nation needs and deserves. Yet at the same time, we will deliver a leading-edge infrastructure network that can be seen as a legacy for future generations.


You must be an experience project manager with a proven track record of managing large, complex delivery programmes through multiple partners and suppliers, and across multiple sites. Strong relationship and stakeholder management skills are vital, with demonstrable experience of leading and motivating a high-performance team. You must have genuine commercial acumen, effective negotiation skills and experience of implementing clear KPIs and objectives to drive efficiency and quality. You must also have knowledge of:

  • Experience of managing large complex delivery programmes through partners and suppliers
  • Proven track record in delivering medium to large multi-site client projects with experience of managing capital budgets in excess of £50M.
  • Experience of building and managing strong senior level relationships internally and externally (eg. Councils) in order to influence and drive the right outputs to meet the business plan

You must also have a full clean driving licence, while an understanding of fibre optic networks would be a significant advantage


Join our talented team, be part of the full fibre revolution and bring Britain up to speed – our country currently ranks 34th for internet speed, but you’ll help drive us into the top five. Our network is built for the future, capable of 100 gigabits per second and beyond, connecting everything and powering 5G, so you’ll be setting the standard for innovation and leading in the market.

You’ll also receive benefits including 25 days’ holiday, a day off on your birthday, car allowance, bonus and private healthcare.
