JP:01 Junior Product Manager (Data)
Are you keen on helping the charity sector improve how it uses data? Are you as comfortable working with JSON and Excel as you are doing user research with practitioners in small organisations? Join our team, exploring how charities and their funders can best use data and digital to improve how they help people.
You’ll be part of a fun, values-driven team that brings together innovation and fundraising, work with charities and funders, and dreaming big while developing practical tools that people want to use.
NPC is the think tank and consultancy for the UK charity sector. We work to increase the positive impact of the sector, to improve people’s lives, make communities stronger and the planet healthier.
We help organisations improve what they do, we influence policy and sector behaviour, and we support innovation in the sector. By working across charities, funders and government, we have a unique perspective and influence, while our consultancy department works with leading organisations advancing great practice. As a hub for ideas, questions and debate, we have a lively work environment, and a supportive community of colleagues and collaborators.
We are looking for someone who is passionate about the potential of data to drive social impact and committed to user-centred research and design to make that happen.
As a Junior Product Manager within the Innovation & Development Team you’ll work both on developing new and existing products to help charities and funders use data, and also contributing to NPC’s wider thinking, innovations and influencing work. Our innovation work involves talking to users to help develop ideas, crafting those ideas into compelling proposals, and then developing successful products working closely with users. As Junior Product Manager you’ll be working closely with the Digital Product Manager, working together on ideas and products, and developing your own products with their guidance and support.
The attributes we are looking for include:
- A keen interest in how organisations can use data to improve
- A passion for data, and skills to match including JSON and Excel
- Experience developing data/digital products
- Good research, analysis, and communication skills
- Enthusiasm for user-centred approaches
The diversity of work and topics, autonomy, intellectual stimulation, and supportive culture makes this a special role. But we understand nobody has everything in the job description. What’s more important to us is a real enthusiasm for the job, and we are committed to supporting and developing you through informal and formal learning and training.
As an equal opportunity employer, we particularly welcome applications from disabled and ethnic minority candidates, groups currently underrepresented in our workforce. We are open to applications from people looking to work part-time hours.
We are based in London and offer hybrid contracts (we expect staff to be in the office at least one day per week). We are open to applicants who wish to work on a part time basis, at least 30 hours per week.
Salary: £24,000 – £28,000 per annum, pro rata, dependent on experience. We also offer a range of competitive benefits including 25 days holiday pro-rata (not including bank holidays), paid study and voluntary leave, and an enhanced maternity package. Read more about our benefits.
