Meet Paul

Read Paul's interview to see what he thinks about working with us at Western Power Distribution.

WPD own and operate an extensive, highly resilient and robust telecommunications network to support the requirements of the electricity distribution network. Having the opportunity to be a part of the team that manages and develops the telecommunications network for current and future electricity network requirements is challenge not to be missed.   

As policy manager the roles involves working with teams to determine appropriate business policies and processes that are simple, but also conform to legislative and ISO/NCSC certification requirements.

Furthermore, each week tends to be varied and may include: managing our cyber security testing activities, looking at current cyber vulnerabilities, leading our external audits, providing feedback to OFCOM information requests.

Working with a great set people that work together to achieve challenging business critical goals.

As an industry leader, WPD’s culture is one of delivering against the company’s regulatory business plans, on budget, on time and most importantly safely; this can only be achieved by a great team environment who are all committed to achieving these goals.

Drive, passion, commitment and an ability to build and foster positive relationships with people and teams.   

Training and development is available at every stage of your career, these key enablers ensure that you have the required knowledge and skills to perform to your best ability.

Obtaining and maintaining the Telecoms businesses ISO and NCSC certifications, which required a set of policies and processes to be put into place, supported by a degree of cultural change.

Cultural change in the adoption of better security practices.

Don’t think about it, do it….be a part of the team that is going to deliver the next generation telecommunications systems required to support the ‘game changing transformation’ of the electricity network.
