Product Executive

As product executive, you will be part of a digital product team working across 10 leading business to business brands in the marcomms and medical sectors. You will be involved in a wide variety of projects including website, mobile and app development, digital optimisation and custom commercial initiatives.

This position is ideal for someone who would like to build a career in product management and has ambitions to become a product manager. It is a very hands on, tactical role for someone who understands the importance of forming a bridge between technical and business requirements acting as the key interface between the development team and the business. Whilst the role has its challenges for someone new to product development, Haymarket is committed to providing the training necessary for the role and plan a clear career path to progress in product management.

The successful candidate will report to the head of product, but will be required to work with a broad group consisting of developers, web producers and project managers as well as business divisions including editorial, marketing and sales departments.
