Radiocommunication Engineer -- International Telecommunication Union, Geneva, Switzerland

ITU is the leading United Nations agency for information and communication technologies, with the mission to connect the world. To achieve this, ITU manages the radio-frequency spectrum and satellite orbits at the international level, works to improve communication infrastructure in the developing world, and establishes global standards that foster seamless interconnection of a vast range of communication systems. ITU also organizes global Telecom events bringing together the most influential representatives of government and the private sector to exchange ideas and knowledge for the benefit of all. 

The Radiocommunication Bureau (BR) is responsible for the application of the Radio Regulations and for technical and administrative support of ITU World and Regional Radiocommunication Conferences, Radiocommunication Assemblies and Study Groups. The Bureau also carries out the international regulatory processes for registration of frequency assignments and satellite orbits and assists administrations in their coordination and implementation of frequency spectrum and orbit requirements as well as in resolving cases of harmful interference. It provides the specialised technical secretariat for the work of the Radiocommunication Study Groups and the Radiocommunication Assembly in the development of recommendations for spectrum utilisation and radio system characteristics. The BR is organised into four Departments: Space Services Department, Terrestrial Services Department, Informatics, Administration and Publications Department and the Study Groups Department.

Organization Unit:
Within the Radiocommunication Bureau, the Space Services Department (SSD) is responsible for the coordination and recording procedures for space systems and earth stations. In these activities the Department deals with the capture, processing and publication of data and carries out examinations of frequency assignment notices submitted by administrations with a view to their inclusion in the formal coordination procedures or their recording in the Master International Frequency Register (MIFR). The Department is also responsible for the management of the procedures of the space related assignment or allotment Plans of the ITU and for the provision of assistance to administrations in their frequency management activities. The Department comprises three Divisions: Space Systems Coordination (SSC), Space Notification and Plans (SNP) and Space Publication and Registration (SPR).
