About us

Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills. We inspect and regulate crucial services for children and young people, including schools and social care. We report directly to parliament, and our work guarantees not only high standards across the services we inspect, but also the safety and protection of thousands of children across the country. Today, our efforts rely on first-class digital services, and in turn the digital specialists who create them. If you're an enthusiastic, multi-talented senior product manager, help us support more young people than ever before while building a dynamic, rewarding career.

About the role

You'll join our Digital Change team, leading on the development of multiple cutting-edge digital services used by our staff, our providers and the public. Our products help us carry out our invaluable work more efficiently and effectively than ever before - our recent projects include a brand-new registration site for child carers and a digital evidence-gathering tool for inspectors. Working alongside other product managers and service owners, you'll develop new products through agile delivery cycles, supported by a group of architects, user researchers and designers. Your challenge will be working with our resources to deliver excellent service design and user experience, meeting the Government Service Standard on every product.

As senior product manager, you'll also manage product backlogs and develop user research approaches to support development, including writing user epics and stories. Beyond product development, you'll lead on encouraging people across Ofsted to learn and use what you've created, setting measurable goals for each product and reporting on performance.

Please note that if your application is successful, you must undergo standard Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks. Although our roles are largely office-based (with some homeworking possible), and require occasional travel, we currently follow new working from home regulations.

About you

You should have experience in leading multidisciplinary teams in the development of high-quality digital products. This should be matched by an excellent level of technical understanding as well as strong communication and analytical skills. You should also have experience in hands-on agile delivery, including developing user stories, defining user acceptance criteria and backlog prioritisation. Beyond your core skills, you should have an expert knowledge of the Government Service Standard and the agile lifecycle.
