How to Apply

If you would like to apply, please do so via the Croydon Council application system on the jobs website. (via "apply for job" on the ad)   The full job description includes the job specification. We are keen to hear how your experience and work motivations meet the job specification so please let us know in your application. Developing an open collaborative culture is really important to us, so whilst of course we need you to have the great skills associated with the role, what is just as essential is  
  • a relentless focus on user needs
  • you enjoy supporting teams new to agile
  • you enjoy helping to create an open collaborative culture
  • you are motivated by making it better
Now, we've got to be honest. There's been some trouble with the application system lately. We think it is resolved. It is a little ironic we know. But it would be an idea to write your application in a separate document so that you can copy and paste it in. We'd hate a possible bug in an (external) product to stop excellent product managers applying to come and help us fix bugs in products! Its a big place and there is a load of excellent work to do in a supportive, enthusiastic team.
