Job Description

DWP. Digital with Purpose.

DWP is the UK's largest government department. We help people into work and make payments worth over £195bn a year, and support over 25 million daily users.

We are looking for a digital Product Manager to join our community of tech experts in DWP Digital.

We're driving a once-in-a-generation transformation of government products and services using fresh ideas and leading-edge technologies to create innovative, scalable and user-centric digital solutions on an epic scale.

Delivering World-Class Products

Right now we're changing how DWP works internally, moving from On-Premise Hosting to Hybrid Cloud Services.

We need a Product Manager who understands what it means to deliver products and solutions that will be used by teams of in-house engineers. One who works brilliant with and for deeply technical stakeholders and users.

It's a massive and important transformation for DWP, underpinning our hosting strategy, so this is a role with huge impact and legacy.

You'll help us deliver greater scalability, reusability for our engineers, as well as better value, through AWS, Azure, container technology. You'll need to thrive working with those sorts of technical requirements.

You'll also work closely with User Research and user centred design professionals, and do everything you'd associate with a PM role, from roadmaps and vision to roll-out.

What skills, knowledge and experience will you need?

  • You have developed product plans, solving problems in deploying and hosting applications in line wider and strategic decisions.
  • You have worked across different teams and lines to effectively communicate a product vision and get stakeholders to buy in.
  • You have managed a product through the different stages of the product lifecycle, using a different range of stakeholder engagement approaches at each stage.
  • You have worked with users to articulate their needs and prioritized these to create a product backlog.

Details. Wages. Perks.

You'll join us in one of our brilliant digital hubs in your choice of Blackpool, Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle and Sheffield.

We also have all the tools and tech we need to enable our people to work and collaborate flexibly. We work a hybrid model - you'll be in the office about 40% of the time, with 60% home working.

We offer competitive pay of up to £59,589

You'll be eligible for a brilliant civil service pension with employer contributions worth over 27%.

You'll get a generous leave package starting at 26 days, 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
  • Hybrid working: some time in a hub with the team, some time at home
  • Family-friendly policies
  • Time off volunteering and charitable giving
  • Bring your authentic self to work with 'I Can Be Me in DWP'
  • Discounts and savings on shopping, fun days out and more
  • Interest-free loans to buy a bike or a season ticket, so it's even easier for you to get to work and start making a difference
  • Sports and social activities
  • Working in an award-winning environment and culture
  • Professional development, coaching, mentoring and career progression opportunities.
