Core Purpose

It’s an exciting time at The Scouts. Our digital transformation programme is an ambitious part of our Skills for Life strategy which aims to enable Scouts to become a digital first organisation.  

 We aim to transform the Scouting experience with digital tools and services for our volunteers, staff and young people which are:  Easy, Enlightening, Enabling, Engaging, Enjoyable and Efficient.  

 Our digital principles underline all our work:    

  • We put people at the heart of everything we do. 
  • We are bold and open to change. 
  • We create digital first, responsive and accessible services. 
  • We use data and insight to drive our decisions. 
  • We measure, test and learn. 
  • We engage, collaborate and partner. 
  • We provide a safe and secure service. 
  • Our systems are flexible, sustainable and interoperable.

 As a Product Manager your key purpose is to manage the development of our membership systems, working with the Delivery Manager and key teams within the organisation. Spending time listening to users, researching, understanding and communicating the product vision and then identify requirements, translate into user stories and communicate these for implementation.

In this role you will have the opportunity to develop the product roadmap, prioritisation and facilitate the delivery of the features to ensure they are released on time and are of a high quality. You will work with both internal teams, and external development partners.

 

 This is a unique opportunity to bring your skills, experience and passion for enabling change to a growing and prestigious organisation. The digital transformation you help to deliver will support nearly half a million young people every week as they gain skills for life through Scouts.
