  • Managing the lifecycle of both new and existing products in line with the Group Product Governance Policy, regulatory expectations and the Society’s risk appetite.
  • Maintaining an overview of both new business and back book portfolios for relevant products, incorporating T&C’s, pricing, charges and literature.
  • Managing the product portfolio within scope of the role, taking ownership for identifying and implementing product and propositional improvements, ensuring products meet customer needs and business objectives, and that the product development process is followed.

  • Assisting in the design and development of new products, or significant changes to existing products, working closely with Senior Product Manager, Marketing proposition team and key business stakeholders to gain approval

You will ideally have knowledge and experience of product management / development and must have a good working knowledge of investment products. Alternatively the role could suit an experienced Financial Planner / Financial Advisor or similar seeking to move away from an advisory role and use their investment product knowledge in a different capacity. This is a fast paced and changing product market so you will need experience of delivering rapid change initiatives without compromising quality and good written and verbal communication skills to support. In addition you will need excellent stakeholder management skills along with the ability to successfully influence and challenge.
