Product Specialist - English Assessment
At Pearson, we’re committed to a world that’s always learning and to our talented team who makes it all possible. From bringing lectures vividly to life to turning textbooks into laptop lessons, we are always re-examining the way people learn best, whether it’s one child in our own backyard or an education community across the globe. We are bold thinkers and standout innovators who motivate each other to explore new frontiers in an environment that supports and inspires us to always be better. By pushing the boundaries of technology — and each other to surpass these boundaries — we create seeds of learning that become the catalyst for the world’s innovations, personal and global, large and small.
We are seeking a Product Specialist to join our English Language Assessment team within our English and Schools division at Pearson. As we look to expand our English Language Assessment services significantly over the next 5 years, the role holder will be joining the business at an exciting time with the opportunity to play a key part in shaping our future. The role has a truly international outlook, dealing with internal stakeholders across the organisation and in some cases directly with customers as we drive to create products and services that meet the needs of our learners and drive business value for Pearson in a $3bn industry.
The role of the Product Specialist within the English Assessment team is to contribute to and facilitate the ongoing development of Pearson’s computer-based and digital assessment products, including our leading English Assessment test, PTE Academic and its associated product ecosystem. Your time will be split between delivering improvements to existing products and helping to qualify new opportunities in order to develop new products or enhance existing services.
The role will suit an ambitious product specialist with good analytical and product lifecycle experience, as well as project management skills and the ability to work well with others and juggle a variety of tasks to meet deadlines. The candidate must be prepared to meet challenges, work with multiple stakeholders, prioritise conflicting goals and cope with continual change.
