Description

 

As part of our exciting journey towards retiring our copper network, we’ve established a brand-new, transformational TELUS-wide program. This program will address network optimization with the goal to eliminate dual support cost structures between the Copper and Fibre network, fully unleashing the benefits of our generational investment in our PureFibre network. We are scaling the program and seeking team members to be part of one of the most transformational projects at TELUS.

 

Join our team:

 

  • Located within our Customer Network Implementation (CNI) team, a team that is a key driver of TELUS’ annual ~$2.9 billion in capital expenditure, our copper retirement program will be responsible for the development and execution of our one network strategy
  • We are focused on aligning key stakeholders across the organization to accelerate the journey to Fibre, optimize our Central Office (CO) footprint, enable power cost savings and ultimately shut down our copper network across communities
  • This work will also help transform the customer experience, field delivery and network quality, and reliability metrics in our new Fibre dominant footprint

Here’s the impact you’ll make and what we’ll accomplish together:

 

We’re looking for a Senior Strategy Manager who is passionate about solving problems and creating new value in support of a transformational program. The ideal candidate for this role is a team player that strives to achieve best-in-class work through their exceptional strategy and collaboration skills.

 

Reporting to the Manager, Copper Retirement Strategy, you will support ad-hoc initiatives as they arise. Currently, this includes unlocking our copper reclamation opportunity. To succeed in this role, the successful candidate will need to drive thought leadership, gather and drive insights from large datasets, create executive-level presentations and stories, and even manage certain portfolios.

 

This role is not about weekly, monthly, or quarterly operational reporting, which will be led by the PMO team. Instead, the emphasis is on establishing new commercial models, identifying attractive quick win opportunities, creating synergies with teams throughout TELUS, and even identifying potential external partners.

 

Here's how:

 

  • Thought leadership: Research and drive ideas for business models associated with copper reclamation and other ad-hoc opportunities associated with copper retirement
  • Critical Thinking: Consider various factors to ensure we are picking the best sites that drive the most value (real estate, copper sales, energy savings) for the investment required
  • Decision Making: Distill large datasets provided by working teams into easy-to-understand insights that can help structure decisions for an executive-level audience
  • Programmatic excellence: Juggle multiple competing priorities, make sure those around you provide information in a timely manner, and stay cognizant of what needs to be done
  • Problem-solving: Collaborate across teams to identify new and innovative ideas, along with ways to drive positive outcomes across the copper retirement portfolio

 

 

Qualifications

 

You're the missing piece of the puzzle

 

  • You have in-depth knowledge of building brand-new business lines and can deploy this knowledge to support program thought leadership and scaling
  • You thrive under ambiguity and are able to quantify opportunities so the appropriate decision can be made to maximize present value
  • You have experience working in a very fast-paced environment - helping gather information to support key decisions in hours or days, not weeks or months
  • You enjoy building relationships with key stakeholders across business units and disciplines to understand the feasibility of certain ideas to ensure they are realistic
  • You aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo and ask difficult questions to drive meaningful engagement regarding a legacy technology stack
  • You have experience with creating dashboards and building strategic models that can help drive decisions
  • You are an organized and compelling communicator with the ability to clearly articulate complex concepts and storylines through various mediums, especially Google Mail, Slides, Docs, Sheets, Forms, DOMO and other platforms

 

Great-to-haves

 

  • University degree in Engineering, Business, or a related field
  • Experience with legacy copper networks and their products and services
  • Consulting or advisory experience (e.g. M&A, real estate)
  • 5-7+ years of experience in a fast-paced role
