A new opportunity has arisen working for one of the main players within the consumer mobile and telecoms market to join their trading team as a Senior Product Manager, responsible for the Mobile and Handsets category.
In this role you will be responsible for all trading activities within this specific category, covering both small tweaks and larger scale changes on a day-to-day, week-to-week and month-to-month basis to ensure the overall objectives of volume and value of sales is successfully achieved.
A highly commercial role with a huge opportunity to positively impact a P&L within a very fast-paced and dynamic market due to its competitive nature. Owning the tactical trading roadmap will mean roughly a 12 week rolling view, needing to balance both the immediate need to make up any potential short-falls through short run offers, balancing the offset of margin giveaways with longer term pay-back opportunities too in order to ensure both sell through rates and value is achieved overall.
The trading aspect of this role isn't just to new customers, so there will be a need to work closely with the CRM decisioning business unit to outline qualifying rules for offers to be presented to existing customers too both through on and offline channels.
Naturally any tweak or change to trading plans or customer incentives and the likes will need robust impact assessment to ensure longer term objectives remain achievable.
Despite being a challenger brand within consumer mobile, overall they represent one of the UK's Superbrand firms and one of the best in their respective industry. This particular opportunity represents a much more green-field opportunity than most with the company being heavily invested in a growth and development phase, establishing themselves as well as what their offering is to be within the consumer mobile industry. So you can expect to be kept busy leading on innovative solutions designed to provide a competitive edge.
They operate with an agile competitor mindset. In recent years they've become known for disrupting the status-quo within the telecoms marketplace through a lot of innovation and heavy investment into new technologies.
They have a serious ambition to become recognised as truly customer centric, which in itself is driving a lot of positive change across the business.
