About our Client: 

Our client is one of the UK's leading automotive motor finance providers who have been delivering effective motor finance solutions for many years across their network of dealerships and motor manufacturers. They offer a full financial product portfolio which enables their dealerships to sell more cars profitably. The business is going through an exciting phase of growth which has seen them acquire additional motor manufacturers in recent years.   

About the Role: 

The Product Development Manager will be accountable for increasing product awareness, deliver product performance and also increasing customer retention. You will develop and manage product strategies and use market research to inform and influence product development. The role will also require you to initiate, support and co-ordinate development of the product working closely with the end user and the in house technical and sales support teams. 

Knowledge within motor finance and the automotive industry would be a huge advantage and enthusiasm and business awareness are an absolute necessity to succeed as a Product Development Manager. The ability to self-motivate is critical, as well as being able to work as part of a team which is made up of both sales and marketing experts. 

Conceptually the brief is simple: from increasing the profitability of your existing products to developing new products for the company. Essentially you are identifying, designing and developing innovative product offerings to drive growth and determining their success by owning the short and long term product roadmap. 

 About You:

 

  • Motor finance professional within the automotive space
  • IT Literate, experienced within product development but equally comfortable engaging directly with corporate customers
  • Experienced Product Development Manager who can get involved with product development and drive best practice for the business
  • Experience in the automotive sector, with a focus on motor finance and contract hire would be a distinct advantage but not an absolute necessity
  • Excellent presentation & communication skills with commercial awareness
  • Ability to present at Director/Executive Board level
