We are looking for a Consumer Product Manager to play a leading role in discovering and developing exciting new products and propositions for the British Heart Foundation's (BHF) Retail Directorate.
You'll be involved from the point of development and approval of business cases through to the trial, evaluation and roll-out of new services and propositions for the BHF.
This role will be involved in projects ranging from the development of our House Clearance service, the establishment of a new service to appeal to organisations for unwanted assets and goods for resale. You'll also be involved in the development of a 'post back' service for the public, to donate valuable unwanted items for our successful eBay operation.
You'll be an experienced product manager, developing successful multi-channel propositions and campaigns with nationwide brands. You'll have proven commercial and project management experience - with strong people skills and the ability to work collaboratively with a wide range of internal and external partners.
