The Product Owner for Core Propositions will be responsible for the overall definition, development and implementation of our customer proposition and product strategy.  The products that fall within this remit are our SIMO, Handset and Mobile Broadband range – which in essence form our core propositions.  Responsibilities will include defining key customer and market insights, target audiences, the proposition strategies to unlock these and the execution plan to make these a reality in the market.   As the Product Owner also owns the P&L for the named products, customer growth targets and customer experience for our core products, they will also define and measure any relevant performance targets (operational and commercial) that underpin the propositions, products that input into these and the overall customer experience. 


They will be responsible for managing and delivering large scale change into the organisation, and will take the lead on the more complex activities as part of the overall roadmap. They will be responsible for building digital first capabilities for every proposition delivered as part of this role.


To help achieve our goal of rapid growth, the Product Owner will also lead a team (or squad) of proposition managers, who will all work to deliver their overall strategy for the portfolio area.  Adopting the principles of Agile, the role holder is also expected to role model and inspire the team to drive digital innovation right at the heart of the growth strategy.


This is an exciting and broad role that provides the opportunity to work across the span on the mobile business.  We are a team who work hard but also know how to have fun and support each other.  If you want to be at the forefront of Vodafone’s journey as a challenger mobile brand this is the place to be.  In return, you’ll be encouraged to stretch yourself and dream big.  Passion and energy are pre-requisites for any role in this team as we operate in a dynamic business.  We believe anything is possible and want people who share this mind-set.
