Vanuatu Telecommunications and Radiocommunications Regulator Request for Expressions of Interest - The Regulator

The Office of the Telecommunications and Radiocommunications Regulator (TRR) was established by an Act of Parliament called the Telecommunications and Radiocommunications Regulation Act 2009 (“the Act”). The Act mandates TRR to regulate the telecommunications and radiocommunications sector.

With a Vision to establish “A communications environment that enriches the social, cultural, customs and commercial fabric of Vanuatu;” the Regulator leads, guides, directs and manages the Office of TRR in order to achieve the objectives of the Act and implement relevant Government Policy as required. Section 7 (5), provides for the Regulator to have a separate and independent legal personality and under the name ‘Telecommunications and Radiocommunications Regulator ‘TRR’, may conduct business independently.

While the telecommunications sector in Vanuatu is vibrant and sophisticated for a country of its size, the Office of TRR is still a relatively new institution and the new Regulator must continue to build on the strong professional relationships TRR now has with its stakeholders; including GOV, the Minister responsible, the Office of the Government’s Chief Information Officer (OGCIO), relevant Government institutions, industry, and the business community, especially service providers and operators and, ultimately, the consumers. Further, the Regulator needs to capitalize and build on the recognition TRR has amongst its peers as being the benchmark and leading regulator in the region.

Expressions of Interest (EOIs) are now invited from qualified individuals with experience and skills to fulfill the role of Regulator, and in administering TRR in performing its powers and functions under the Act. The candidate must have relevant and extensive wide ranging demonstrable experience to carry out the work as stipulated in the following sections. Ni-Vanuatu citizens are strongly encouraged to apply for this position.
