Product Manager

As the Senior Product Manager for this big consumer telecoms player, you will be responsible for developing and launching, as well as managing in life, a series of FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) approved propositions within the consumer mobile market.

At the moment, the range of solutions are kept under wraps, but to give you examples of what they might be, you only have to look at competitors; for example:

  • O2 Refresh - where the handset is sold under a credit arrangement separate to the tariff
  • Vodafone PAYG - where the consumer can have a £2 overspend facility afforded on credit
  • Handset Insurance sold alongside the core products - where the terms and conditions have to satisfy FCA approval

You will be responsible for considering both customer and market requirements, competitor offerings and where green-field space might be that the business is well positioned to occupy, and developing the product roadmap to suit.

Since the suite of products you're responsible for will all be around credit, finance, insurance based solutions which compliment or support the sales of handsets and mobile phone tariffs, you will need to fully compliant and conversant with FCA regulations in order to succeed.

Once live and in market, you will be the go-to person for any queries or issues surrounding FCA compliance, which will not only be about the products, but also things like treating customers fairly too.

It's important to note, this role offers an immense amount of potential. The end client is just getting to grips with developing new products in this space and some of them will really shape their future and ongoing mobile propositions too, since the market is rapidly evolving and the way handsets and tariffs are being sold changing too.

The Company

They're a big consumer brand where Consumer Mobile plays an important part of their product portfolio and growth prospects for the business' future.

You will be part of a team of 5 currently within the Consumer Mobile product development team, reporting to the department head. That team are responsible for developing both core products and services outside of handset and tariffs which both differentiate the business' offer versus competitors and provide both tactical and strategic advantage for the business too with the creation and delivery of products which take advantage of evolving technology and consumer's behaviours too.
