About the role
As product manager you will be overall responsible for a group of service products within the portfolio of services. You will have cradle to grave ownership of the design, strategic position, and performance of these products, with the aim of maximizing the competitiveness of your part of the service portfolio.
You will be responsible for generating and assessing ideas for the development and repositioning of products in your part of the portfolio and fleshing these ideas out into actionable development proposals. You will own and assemble the business plan and financial case (Including assessments of customer value and value to SGRE) for each possible product development in your area, and advocate for the development of the strongest options.
During the development process for new products, you will work in close partnership with the Project Manager for the project, providing them with clarity on the product requirements in terms of features and functionality, based on your ongoing market research and engagement with our customers.
You will also ensure that the sales teams are suitably supported through good quality training, product documentation, and a well aligned sales plan. Post release, you will monitor the performance of the product and ensure any outstanding issues are addressed. You will continue to monitor the performance of released products in your care throughout their life and propose changes or retirement as appropriate.
The ideal candidate will have a strong commercial background and the ability to think in a strategic way about products and their place in the market. Candidates will need to demonstrate an understanding of how products create value for customers. Significant experience in roles such as Product Management, Sales, Business Development, or Strategy would be an asset.
A sound technical foundation is also important, and an ideal candidate would likely be degree qualified in a discipline of engineering or another STEM subject. Significant experience in the energy industry would be a great asset.
Candidates should be highly independent, self-driven workers who are confident analyzing topics, forming their own opinions and proposals, and then advocating these proposals in a manner that combines both passion and evidence. Product Managers are expected and encouraged to be decisive decision makers, and to advocate for their decisions.
You should also be an extremely strong communicator with great people skills and good persuasive ability. The role has a wide range of stakeholders both internally and externally, so confident networking is key. Your English should be of a very high standard, both spoken and written.
