Why should you join Cambridge?
Our mission is to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning, and research at the highest international levels of excellence. Which is why every year, we give vital support to millions of people in more than 170 countries around the world. From teachers and learners to researchers and academics, we help to build confidence, unlock potential, and enable success. We give people the opportunity to show what they’ve learnt, we spread knowledge, spark enquiry, and aid understanding.
We achieve this by embracing change, and continuously focusing on our customers’ needs. And by collaborating, and carefully listening to our customers and to each other, we keep moving forward, keep innovating, and keep finding newer and better ways of doing things.
What will you do in this role?
The key to our work is our colleagues, whose shared commitment enables us to have an ever-greater impact. We are a united, vibrant, and respectful global community of people, and we ensure that every individual is recognised, listened to, and cared for.

Whether you want a career that’s linear, or want to follow your own path, we’ll support you, and help give you the resources and training you’ll need to be bold and take ownership of what you do.
You will be responsible for managing the development of several digital products or services working as part of multi-disciplinary teams to explore concepts and ultimately define product proposals for future digital propositions in line with CUP&A strategies.
Other key responsibilities will include:
· Working with Research to lead innovation; definition, delivery and evaluation of appropriate pilot studies and proofs of concept using customer-centric design principles
· Working with delivery leads to define, plan and deliver products in support of the digital products and services strategy
· Supporting the planning, development and delivery of the broader digital products and services roadmaps
