About the role

We have an exciting new opportunity to join Virgin Media O2 as a Statutory & Streetworks Engineer!  Within this role you’ll be acting as a national statutory and legislative advisor for our access, field, planning, civils and access build and compliance departments.

You’ll be liaising with suppliers, partners and local authorities throughout the U.K in order to ensure continual improvement in our working processes and provide an escalation point for high level performance issues.

Tell me more, tell me more..

As a Statutory & Streetworks Engineer, you’ll provide advice and documentary information to Virgin Media departments on civils standards, specifications, construction materials and operations, and work collaboratively with them to resolve problems and improve processes. You’ll suggest, develop and continually review good working practices and civils solutions for resolving future liabilities and reducing the whole life cost of operational activities.

As part of your role, you’ll work in conjunction with civils and access build teams and compliance, support meetings with local authorities in order to review current practices and to generate good working relationships. In doing so, you’ll assist in the speedy resolution of conflict between Virgin Media and authorities through requested involvement in issue problem solving.

  • Proven experience in street works legislation

  • Considerable experience in interpreting streetworks

  • Proven ability to communicate at all levels of management, to articulate and negotiate on key Streetworks issues

Other stuff we’re looking for

  • Experience working in a lively environment, with a high workload!

  • Good interpersonal skills and good organisational skills.

  • The ability to develop and drive relationship building with colleagues, customers and stakeholders.

  • Excellent communication skills and an ability to positively influence the outcome of meetings.

What's in it for you?

We know that benefits mean so much more than the 'stuff' we can give you, so we offer a wide range of support, rewards and tools - all focused on helping you to prioritise what really matters. 

All work and no play just isn't our style! We're already planning our future ways of working, for when life becomes a little more normal again. We're constantly evolving our approach to enable you to find a great work life balance. 

Next steps

If we feel like a place where you can belong, we'd love to learn more about you. Once you've submitted an application the next steps of the process, if successful, are likely to include a competency based interview.

When you apply, you'll be asked about any adjustments you might need to support the recruitment process. Let us know, and we'll be sure to discuss it with you. Thanks for your patience in the meantime and for showing an interest in joining the Virgin Media O2 family.
