People who are looking for a challenging yet rewarding career opportunity in the telecommunications service industry will find this job ideal.

Hong Kong's largest technical services company, Cascade, provides a range of planning, designing, maintenance, implementation and support services to customers who depend on reliable networks and operating systems. The firm was established in 2003 and is a subsidiary of PCCW.

The company bagged the InfoVision Award 2006 in the category of content, entertainment, applications and services at the International Engineering Consortium's Broadband World Forum Asia 2006, which was held last month in Hong Kong.

The company expects steady local growth and is expanding throughout the region.

The ideal candidate should possess exceptional leadership skills to ensure thorough planning and optimisation of regional 2G and 3G networks.

Applicants should have three years to five years of experience in wireless applications and an engineering degree in electrical, electronics or telecommunications.

The engineer should also have the knowledge required to provide frequency and parameter planning for radio networks.

The applicant should have experience in conducting long-term resource planning. He or she will also be asked to recommend expansion and resource reallocation plans.

The engineer should have thorough technical knowledge and a strong analytical ability with a knack for approaching problems from different perspectives to come up with creative solutions.

The ideal candidate will have an outgoing personality and strong negotiation skills because the job will involve co-ordinating with equipment vendors.

The engineer should be able to work independently and under pressure.

A passport is a must as the job involves extensive travelling in the Asia-Pacific region.

The ideal candidate should be fluent in English and Cantonese, while the ability to speak other languages or dialects such as Putonghua or any of the Malaysian or Indian languages will be an advantage.

Experience in an international environment and having a good balance between engineering and servicing skills would be considered valuable assets.
