Do you have experience of managing the rollout of large technology on a grand scale and excellent relationship building skills? If so, we can offer you one of the most important, complex and challenging jobs across Government.


The Emergency Services Communications Programme (ESMCP) is building a new Emergency Services Network (ESN) that will transform the technology that Britain’s Emergency Services use. ESN will provide critical fast, safe, and secure voice communications and carry video and data across a new digital network, enabling first responders to gain immediate access to life-saving data, images and information in real-time situations and emergencies on the frontline.

As Director of Deployment, you will:

  • Develop, own and govern the strategic approach and plan for the rollout of ESN to 300,000 emergency personnel.
  • Manage the delivery of mobile phone signal coverage required to support ESN.
  • Manage the upgrade of over 80 control rooms to work with ESN
  • oversee the design and procurement of equipment for 40,000 vehicles, 100+ aircraft and each member of the emergency services


If you thrive in a challenging role and want to help build a modern mission-critical communications network that will transform how our emergency services work enabling them to stay safe and protect our citizens, then get in touch.
