Ofcom is the independent regulator and competition authority for the UK communications industries. We regulate the TV, radio, fixed-line telecoms, mobile telecoms and postal sectors, plus the radio spectrum over which wireless devices operate. 

By taking lead responsibility for information management, the Project Administrator has an essential role in delivering successful projects. Ofcom’s Competition Group regularly conducts market reviews of telecoms and broadband in the UK, as well as other significant projects in the broadcasting and post sectors. These reviews and projects require us to gather and manage a significant amount of information from stakeholders. To ensure that our decisions are properly evidenced, it is essential that we capture and record all the information supplied to us in a methodical, accurate and easily searchable/retrievable manner, while respecting confidentiality. In addition to assisting our decision-making process, these records also form the basis of our defence in the event that our decisions are appealed. The Project Administrator has a key role in information management for these reviews and projects. The role also involves providing administrative support to large, multi-disciplinary project teams.
