Infrastructure Project Manager: Network, Infrastructure
- Candidates must have a background of delivering network infrastructure projects
- Candidates’ must be experienced in working in technology and specifically in the IT infrastructure space.
- Projects will run at an aggressive rate, PM’s must be able to operate in a high-pressure environment where deployment milestones must be met
- Should be experienced in running large projects with complex requirements.
- Must understand agile and waterfall project management
- Experienced in managing budgets that may be multi-million in size.
- Some travel may be required
- GSK’s expectation is that we may be using outsource vendors for technical deployments, candidates must be comfortable in working with GSK’s preferred external vendors.
- Must be “self-starting” able to get themselves trained up on core systems used and work to engage both delivery resources and on-site resources to define scope, cost and timelines.
The successful project manager will be expected to work with vendors and internal teams to deploy the scope, dedicated delivery teams will not be assigned to each project, but PM’s will be expected to manage in a matrix, sharing resources. The PM are accountable for creating a budget and a plan, getting approval and then managing the deployments.
The scope of deployments at each site would be –
- WiFi surveys will be completed by an external vendor. The PM will be responsible for working with local cabling companies to manage the deployment of Cat 6a cabling for new WiFi AP’s identified in the WiFi survey.
- As part of the deployment new fibre cables may be required to support the deployment of new network switches. This needs to be scoped and managed by the PM.
- PM will also need to work with the business to determine things like port count usage and ensure appropriate network cabling is available.
- WAN deployment will be initiated by a central team as soon as we hit day 1. The PM will be responsible for working with the central team to get the WAN deployed as quickly as possible and into the right location into the site.
- The PM will also be responsible for working with the business to determine any changes required to support the criticality of the site. For example the site may only have one network demark point currently, but if the business determines that the site is critical enough the PM may need to work to manage the creation and deployment of the WAN over multiple demark area’s into separate sections of the site.
- Our external vendor will be responsible for managing the configuration and testing of any new LAN hardware prior to deployment to the site.
- The PM will need to work with the vendor to manage the deployment of any new network hardware, ensuring that there is physically enough space for it to be installed and that the right connections and power are in place. The new GSK network will be installed in parallel to the existing Pfizer network.
- The PM will also be responsible for working with the sites to ensure that there is the right number of ports available for both the WiFi network and any physical connections. GSK is mostly WiFi by default for office areas and this is likely a change from the current environment meaning we can remove a lot of the current desktop/laptop connections, however manufacturing and Lab environments will need physical connections and it will be for the PM working with the business to identify these.
- PM will be responsible for getting cat 6A cables deployed for new WiFi Access Points, ensuring AP’s are configured and ensuring they are mounted.
- All sites will require both IT and OT servers deployed, the PM will be responsible for understanding which system goes into which environment and managing the deployment.
- The PM will also be responsible for working with the business to assist with any deployment help they need in getting any new applications deployed to those servers.
End user device deployment (laptop and mobile)
- PM will be responsible for working with the site and other IT workstreams end users to manage the deployment of GSK laptops and the collection and disposal of old Pfizer devices.
- PM will be responsible for deploying GSK’s backup solution along with the server deployment.
Data centre monitoring
- PM will be responsible for working with our data centre team and managing the deployment of our data centre monitoring system
End user printing deployment
- PM will be responsible for working with the GSK print services team to define and deploy GSK’s standard office printer environment. Specialist printers (label, zebra printers) used in manufacturing will be out of scope.
- Printers are deployed by a third party and the PM will be responsible for managing this.
Meeting and collaboration room deployments
- GSK has standards for meeting rooms and the PM will be responsible for working with the central team and the site to scope out which rooms would need to have this standard deployed in.
