We’re looking for people interested in establishing a career in product management to lead digital service delivery at Citizens Advice. You’ll lead multidisciplinary teams delivering a sustainable, user-led approach to the provision of advice. The team is at the heart of the organisation’s mission to give people the knowledge and confidence to find their way forward - whoever they are, and whatever their problem. 

We have an ambitious product strategy that supports the organisation’s overall mission. Within this we are focused on 4 areas: 

1. Building outcomes measurement capability 

2. Enable a seamless client journey 

3. Tailored, tactical advice services online, without needing an adviser

4. Remote advice delivery through phone, chat, video and email platforms 

We’re growing fast, and today, we have 10 multidisciplinary product and platform teams, split across four areas: public advice, adviser-facing services, platforms, and advice-area specific services. 

You’ll be working on products that help 30 million people every year, and your work here will make a huge difference to their lives. You’ll be setting the goals, strategy and priorities within our cross-functional public advice team, and defining the way millions of people get help from us on a daily basis. 

We’re an equal opportunity employer and prize diversity as a strength. Everyone is welcome at Citizens Advice. We offer flexible working, and are open to part-time and job sharing too. In fact, several of our leadership team members work four days a week.
