The product manager will be involved at the start of a digital transformation process at the North London Waste Authority, working with a small but growing team within Corporate Services. This includes scoping, delivering and iterating digital and data products deployed at NLWA, as well as building the agile delivery capability within the digital team and improving collaborative ways of working across NLWA. You will be expected to use your knowledge of user needs and understanding of goals to frame problems, set priorities to build great products and services, and influence others to do the same.

You will work across a portfolio of digital and data products at NLWA, working closing with stakeholders inside and outside of NLWA. You will have a focus on how well-informed user needs inform great products and meaningful outcomes and will inspire others across NLWA to see the value in putting the needs of our users first.

You’ll report to the senior digital transformation manager and work alongside a growing multidisciplinary team.
