  • Where required, carry out site surveys as part of the installation preparation to ensure that our radio and tower integration installations can meet the SCIDA requirements as detailed in JSP 604, Leaflet 4800.

  • Due to the document deliverables provided by this role, this individual will need to build a close working relationship with our onsite installation teams, engineering staff and SCIDA site engineers.

Job Scope

The key scope of this role is to prepare, produce and seek approval for the documentation required for our clients installation teams to commence a radio or tower integration installation task at an MOD airfield.

The successful candidate will receive an induction that will include meeting our onsite installation teams and briefing on the required documentation to be produced. This documentation has been produced for the sites where we have already undertaken installation and transition activities, however more radio and tower integration sites are scheduled for the remaining years of the contract, so more resource is required for the installation planning and handover phases.

The post holder will primarily be office based at our clients site in Whitely, however as part of the induction process it is recommended that the candidate attend several site surveys with representatives from our clients installation teams, so he/she can familiarise themselves with the MOD site(s) and SCIDA installation processes.
