  • You will help create and monitor agreement templates, process documents (including governance processes) and training manuals in connection with cell site acquisition.
  • You will support senior members within the team in the management of property litigation in conjunction with Technology and Finance stakeholders, working with external suppliers where necessary. You will help ensure adherence to internal governance processes.
