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 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, designing and developing the 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 a great user experience and meeting the Government Service Standard with every product.

As product manager, there's also ample scope to lead on projects within a service area and support more senior colleagues on complex product design. Beyond product development, you'll also help us shape the way we work, engaging stakeholders across Ofsted and encouraging them to learn and use what you've created.

Please note that if your application is successful, you must undergo standard Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks. Our roles are normally a mix of office-based and home-based, with occasional travel; however, we currently follow new working from home regulations.

About you

You should have experience in meeting user needs through product design, collaborating with multi-disciplinary team in the process. You should also have experience in lifecycle methodologies, such as discovery, alpha, beta and live. Strong communication skills are essential, as you'll be explaining complex decisions to both technical and non-technical audiences. Beyond your core skills, you should have a wide knowledge base across user research, business analysis and service design.

We're also interested to hear from people who are looking to move into a product role from another area, such as user research, prototyping, performance analysis, interaction or content design.
