We are one of the world’s leading authorities on conflict and its impact on people’s lives – from 1914 through to the present day and beyond. Our collections are filled with personal stories and experiences, inspiring powerful and often conflicting emotions. We aim to share these stories with as many audiences as possible across the world in a way that engages and challenges them, increasing understanding of why we go to war and the effect that conflict has on people’s lives. In other words, we expect our stories to change the way people think about war.
We rely on our staff to help us achieve this aspiration. You should be able to demonstrate the skills and competencies set out below, but equally we are looking for people who believe in what we do and who we are, and can treat every colleague, customer or visitor with respect, courtesy and honesty. We expect our staff to work flexibly and with enthusiasm. These are the qualities that make IWM such an extraordinary place to work.
Purpose of the job
The Department of Digital Engagement is responsible for the development, delivery and provision of digital media within the Imperial War Museum (IWM) and its branches IWM London, IWM Duxford, IWM North, Churchill War Rooms and HMS Belfast.
As one of our digital product managers, you will be joining a friendly, skilled team who are passionate about the opportunities that digital media offers to our visitors, both on and off site. You will work closely with the rest of the team to enhance and develop a number of IWM’s digital products.
You should have extensive product and project management skills, including experience of agile practice. As IWM more widely also uses other processes, you should also be familiar with traditional project management approaches such as PRINCE 2. You will be experienced at taking ideas from conception to completion, consistently achieving objectives to time and budget by balancing creative leadership with a pragmatic, hands-on approach and by deploying appropriate processes and methodologies.
