  • Experience as a product manager in the principles and application of agile methodologies such as Scrum, Kanban and Lean Startup.
  • Strong visual and verbal communication skills, tailored to the needs of the audience.
  • The ability to passionately pursue a vision and articulate it to a wide audience, from team members to Director General level and to facilitate collaborative and engaging sessions with staff from all levels of seniority.

  • A good appreciation for, and ideally practical experience of, service design, user research, UX, design, data and development principles, and how each contribute to the creation of successful products.
  • Work experience with some recognised leading organisations in the digital world.
