Head of Commercial Data Products
Reports to: Director of Analysis and Insights
Direct reports: Yes
Team: name TBC
Business unit: Analysis and Insights
Working closely with colleagues across the charity and our commercial arm UCAS Media, the Head of Commercial Data Products is responsible for the creative use of our data in the development and delivery of all of our commercial data-driven products and services.
As our product team delivers a roadmap based on product performance, and market and customer insight, you will lead the multi-disciplinary teams who provide the expertise to deliver high-quality commercial data products and services, against the needs expressed by the product roadmap. You will drive the pace of change to provide real commercial thrust to the use of our data in producing insight products. Once these products have been thoroughly tested, they will need to be moved into operation, and the role holder will need to collaborate with product, marketing, and pipeline management colleagues to execute in line with the go-to-market approach developed by the appropriate Product Manager, and the operating model for each service or product. You will need a close working relationship with the technology and architecture functions.
Taking the lead from the business strategy, you will set the vision and commercially shape what the division is doing, and work with the customer facing teams to shape ideas and customer needs into value adding commercial propositions, including the increased use of personalisation, visualisation, and rich data presentation. We aspire to move to rich containerised products that may include video, data, and text files in presenting meaning to our users.
