What your job will be: 

Product Owner is a newly created key to delivering our human centred approach to product development, working directly with the Chief Product Officer in the Product Team.

You’ll be working collaboratively with Design, Research and Customer Experience specialists to deliver specific projects within an agile product development environment.

  • A genuine passion for creating industry-leading, user-centred, digital products.
  • Experience working with market research, identifying opportunities through interviews and desk-based research.

A true passion for representing the customer and delivering to growth objectives
Knowledge of the retail investment market is a plus
An ability to analyse and understand data to identify opportunities for improvement
