We are seeking an enthusiastic team player to join the team to support product iteration and continuous improvement.

You will be comfortable working in a fast paced, high performance team.
Working with our suppliers and the in-house multi-disciplinary agile team, you will own the product strategy and delivery roadmap for OPS and the Skills Gateway. You will lead the organisation’s Product Owners, giving them support and coaching. You will have a demonstrable experience of agile product management and a strong understanding of user-centred design.
