Airswift has been tasked by one of our major EPC O&G clients to seek a Telecoms Expert to work in their facilities located in Brussels, under 1 year contract.

As a Telecom Expert, you will build up expertise and be technically responsible for your specific domain within the Expertise Secondary Systems team.

The tasks focus on the "passive" part of the telecommunications equipment:
  • You are technically responsible for the passive part of the telecom equipment.
    This includes: all the necessary material for optical fiber connections (both between sites and within a site between buildings) and copper ethernet connections, 19-inch cabinets, ... as well as for the interface between the Secondary Systems (protections, DCS, etc.) and the active telecommunications equipment (TDM, MPLS, etc.).
  • The technical management of the existing framework agreements for the "passive" telecom equipment between the company and the suppliers (optical fibre cable, HDPE pipes, 19-inch cabinets, optical fibre patch panels/patchcords/...).
  • For new framework agreements, you will follow up on the entire European tendering procedures and you will be fully responsible for the technical part (market research – drawing up technical specifications – analysis of tenders – meetings with suppliers – ...).
  • Drafting technical standards/specifications and solutions based on concept notes and guidelines for application in investment projects.
  • Providing technical advice to the project teams.
  • Developing and providing technical training to the operational entities.
  • Maintain close cooperation with the "datacom" department, which is responsible for the development and support of company’s telecommunications backbone (the actual telecommunications network), as they manage the network's "active" equipment.
  • Develop a general knowledge of the entire secondary part of our substation.

Acquiring the necessary technical expertise in the field is a necessary condition to be able to carry out the above activities.

  • Civil or industrial engineer.
  • You can express yourself both verbally and in writing in Dutch, French and English.
  • You have a strong affinity for electrical engineering and are willing to further build and propagate technical expertise.
  • You love to dive into technical details and increase your technical knowledge.
  • You are looking for pragmatic solutions and you are customer- and result-oriented.
  • You can work fluently in a team, are communicative and have good persuasiveness.
  • You have strong analytical and synthesizing skills so that you can convey a complex subject matter in a clear way (both orally and in writing).
  • You independently and proactively manage the pre-agreed range of tasks.
  • You can report clearly and structurally about the results of your activities in report form or by means of a presentation.
  • In-depth knowledge of MS Office is a plus.
The following technical knowledge is required:
    • IT networks and their installation (routers, switches, structured cabal, optical connections, cat6, UTP, STP, etc.).
    • Detailed technical knowledge of copper and optical cables (including accessories).
    • Installation techniques/requirements/... optical connections between sites/buildings.
    • Several years of experience.
