Reporting to the Director of Technical Sales Support, as the Radio Technical Sales Support Team Leader you’ll lead the Radio Technical Sales Support function, co-ordinating technical pre sales work for Radio business as usual opportunities. This will involve working closely with Arqiva’s Radio Business Unit and its’ customers to provide technical support and deliver cost effective design and costings to meet our Radio Customers requirements.

Self-driven and able to manage and motivate a technical team, with a strong focus on delivering design and costings to demanding timescales, your broad technical knowledge will match a high degree of commercial awareness within pre sales system design. You’ll also need:
• excellent technical report-writing, analytical and all-round communication skills
• the ability to grasp new technical concepts and technologies rapidly and adapt them to commercial system design
• experience of pre-sales support.
Knowledge and experience of FM, Long Wave, Medium wave, digital radio and associated connectivity and radio systems is key. Previous experience of working for UK radio licence holders would be an advantage. A working knowledge of TV, satellite and media would be useful.
