As our Product Strategist you'll help us meet the needs of those who use and are influenced by our services. And you'll help us hit Government sustainability targets and build sustainability into all our work.

You will identify and develop initiatives led by the Digital Sustainability team across DWP Digital.

You will be responsible for strategic and tactical decisions, using your knowledge of how our services currently work to frame problems and set priorities for the wider organisation.

You will also be actively involved in developing and managing the Digital Sustainability roadmap.

  • Experience of working across multiple functions and departments, with the ability to work with various stakeholders to communicate visions and gain buy-in
  • Experience of developing product strategy by understanding risks and future drivers
  • Can influence stakeholders and build long term strategic relationships which are managed effectively
  • Can make effective decisions based on incomplete information using a range of techniques
  • Experience of having conducted analysis of complex issues and presented findings to colleagues
  • Skilled in supporting the development of a product roadmap, receiving and acting upon challenge from stakeholders

Details. Wages. Perks.

You'll join us in your choice of our digital hubs in Birmingham, Blackpool, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle or Sheffield, whichever is more suitable for you.

We also have all the tools and tech we need to enable our people to work flexibly. We work a hybrid model with a mix of home working and time in the office.

In return for your skills, we offer a competitive pay of up to £63,517.

You'll get a generous leave package starting at 26 days and rising to 31. Plus, all the usual bank holidays, and the option to take extra days off on flexi leave.

We also have a broad benefits package built around your work-life balance which includes:

  • Flexible working, flexi hours and flexi days

  • Family-friendly policies
  • Time off for volunteering and charitable giving
