The National Broadband Network Company (NBN Co) is seeking a radio planning manager to head up Australia's $43 billion National Broadband Network (NBN) and wrangle the best spectrum licences from the government's communications regulator.

The manager will be in charge of mapping out base stations and ensuring the company reaches its slated 10 per cent broadband coverage of regional areas.

NBN Co requires that the capital expenditure of radio base stations decreases each year and has also set its sights on both WiMax and Long Term Evolution wireless broadband technologies.

The position opening comes as the company prioritises regional broadband coverage as part of agreements between the Gillard Government and Federal Independents.

"We will now work to restore deferred processes, including the recruitment of staff," NBN Co said of the Labor win and resumption of the NBN roll-out. "Everyone at NBN Co is looking forward to working with business, government, the community and our customers to deliver a high-speed broadband future for all Australians."

The business-savvy manager will report directly to the network design general manger as the resident radio expert within the NBN Co's planning and design department.
