Product Manager

We're recruiting on behalf of one of the UK's biggest and most powerful consumer brands who are looking to engage a new Product Manager

They are looking for a commercially oriented product management to join an area of the business that holds huge potential for growth.

With an sensational roadmap of new consumer products in the pipeline, you would gain ownership of the stratergy behind these.

Although it handles technology based services, it's more focused towards the commercial performance of products, establishing of business cases for development of the product and management in-life.

Rather than the technical back end of things like server farms and the physical building of products.

So if you don't come from the commercial product management world, this probably isn't for you.

You will be specifically responsible for owning the future development roadmap and in-life elements in respect of these products which reflect a significant value added proposition for very large B2C audience.

On top of this, it's worth mentioning the company this role works for has a very high bar and expectations for employees in their product management functions.

So you can expect to be surrounded by a high performing team, who typically all have exemplary education credentials and really solid pedigrees in delivering commercial success for any products they've been owner of.

So similarly this is what they would expect of you too.

To be a good fit for what the client is seeking, you need to have owned the product roadmap and overseen the commercial success of a product that's in the digital eco-system and has a decent sized audience / customer base.

Your experience ideally will be within consumer technology.

As you're working with a technology based product area, you will need to be able to converse with technical teams when considering things like infrastructure needs, especially when considering customer uptake, costs and when undertaking product changes or development roadmaps.

  • Budget planning and management - including supplier payments and local funding approval processes

  • Evaluation and definition of new technologies through Innovation Forums

  • Ability to carry out a market evaluation of the competitive landscape and can demonstrate the ability to make the right decisions, quickly

  • Evidenced experience in distributing what's needed to ensure products you've owned remain successful, and can successfully establish business cases for change, pitching for investment and able to see through projects which could include rebuilding a product in the digital space from the ground up
