Who we are:


The Bell Network team is on a journey to transform how Bell delivers the best customer experience with seamless access to a software-driven and cloud-based ecosystem of products, services and content. This transformation is about simplifying, virtualizing and automating the network transport and services to lower costs and increase agility to deploy Bell services.


At the centre of driving this transformation is the Smart Core Strategy and Program Office, orchestrating the full life cycle of these changes, from initial concept and strategic direction, to its delivery and launch.  From emerging ‘smart’ technologies like edge computing, virtual network services and 5G network slicing, our Strategy and Program Office acts as the glue in aligning the direction of the organization and managing the development and execution of complex cross-functional programs that will really make a difference to Bell’s profitability and the superior experience delivered to our customers.


We are a new start-up team of industry experts, covering a wealth of technical backgrounds across wireless, wireline, TV and Media, but grounded in a strong understanding of the business side of technology.   The breadth of our scope is wide, interfacing across Bell business units and with the industry that influences our direction.   If you have an insatiable appetite for learning, with exceptional communication skills and an ability to influence and engage in a fast moving environment, we have the next career progression for you!
