You’ll work closely with other council teams who want to improve their services, listening to their needs and balancing them with business and technical constraints.
You’ll speak up for our users, whether they are residents or staff, and use data and research to make sure our products and services meet their needs.
At all stages of the product lifecycle, you’ll confidently lead your team in setting a vision and fulfilling it, solving our users’ problems with products we can be proud of.
You’ll report to a lead or senior product manager and play an active role in the development of our product management community of practice.

Who we’re looking for
You’ll have experience of delivering and iterating digital products. You might be an experienced product manager who has led multidisciplinary teams before. Equally, you might be looking for your first product management role, having led impactful projects in an adjacent discipline, such as service or content design. Either way, you’ll be a curious and impact-driven person, whose focus is always on the user.
You’ll be a leader who listens to and values the opinions of others. You’ll work well with people from different disciplines in your team and colleagues from across the council, to create the conditions for the best decisions to be made. You’ll also be curious about technology and not afraid to try new things.
You’ll be passionate about developing your skills and supporting others in the team.
We’re building a team where everyone feels safe to be who they are. We value empathy, open mindedness and a real passion for our mission.
