About the role

About the Data Estate Team:
The Data Estate team is on a mission to enhance the value of our data and to transform the culture at Virgin Media O2 towards data as a strategic asset.  Our teams are building state of the art data governance and privacy capabilities, optimising consents and opt-ins and exploiting data monetization opportunities anchored in a relationship with our customers of trust, transparency and control.

High-performing team-play is what we’re about.  We’re pushing each other outside of our comfort zones, leaning on each other as we learn and grow in a culture of openness, vulnerability, unconditional support and the ability to laugh together.

The Role:
We are creating a brand new role – A Senior Product Manager for Consent and our consent management capabilities. You will own both the consent product experience and the platforms strategy driving at building better customer experiences while meeting our business outcomes.

As a Senior Consent Product Manager, you’ll be responsible for:

•    The strategic roadmap of our consent management and preference centre platforms. Ensuring we are using the best of the technology to optimise our consent portfolio. You will be fully accountable for the end to end development through to delivery of your portfolio to implement the product vision and strategy
•    Creating and managing data-led A/B or multivariate testing programmes to optimise our consented customers at every opportunity
•    Play the lead role in consent being treated as product offering – You will be full of ideas of how we can make our consent offering appealing to our customers, create new features, and be able to back it up using value and optimisation business cases
•    End to end lifecycle management of the consent products, and developing a segmented approach to the consent experience that helps customers control their consent in transparent way
•    Work collaboratively with marketing, strategy, delivery, legal, privacy, data and analytics teams as we develop our consent mastering and preference centre strategies to achieve business goals
•    Managing multiple stakeholder relationships with teams who are ‘downstream’ dependent on consent in a highly complex and changing landscape. You will also work directly with the consent platforms technical product owner for configuration and change control
•    Manage the governance of consent for a consistent and considered internal and external customer experience

Must haves:
•    You must have previous experience working as a product owner (or manager). Preferably within digital or telecoms industries
•    An understanding of consent and consent management platform experience would be highly beneficial, but if not, an appreciation of the role data, consent, and its activation can play to drive competitive advantage is required
•    Experience of using data and analytics to test and learn, A/B test or multivariate test. You will have repeatedly used data and insight results to improve a product, proposition or a digital app
•    Working experience of data privacy and the implications for consent would be advantageous
•    Very high level of data understanding. Using data and analytic in a Cloud environment would also be helpful

The other stuff we're looking for:
•    An innovative and creative thinker, with the ability to apply analytical rigour and problem-solving skills. We are building new capability, not following a well-trodden path.
•    Great communication and presentation skills, particularly for less technical audiences. Consent is a highly complex subject matter, and the ability to apply the right level of detail will be essential
•    Positive mindset for change, and being comfortable with constantly iterating and adapting the approach as we learn with the new consent product offerings
•    Collaborative and effective, a team player that gets the importance of culture and wants to win as a team
•    Highly motivated and a self-starter
•    Highly resilient and tenacious in approach; applying creative thinking to solve problems
•    Open, supportive, focussed on personal development, learning and growth

What's in it for you?
We know that benefits mean so much more than the 'stuff' we can give you, so we offer a wide range of support, rewards and tools - all focused on helping you to prioritise what really matters.

All work and no play just isn't our style! We're already planning our future ways of working, for when life becomes a little more normal again. And it's fair to say, it'll offer great flexibility and always put wellbeing at the top of the table. We're open to chatting about flexible working (so don't be worried to ask the question). Every role is different, so where we can, we'll work with you to achieve the right balance.

If you go on to be successful in your application, some of the many benefits you'll get are:
•    25 days annual leave, plus UK Bank Holidays + Your birthday off every year, to treat yourself.
•    A defined contribution pension scheme, run by Fidelity, matched up to 10%.
•    An annual bonus of up to 15%, based on company performance.
•    Access to wellbeing benefits such as the Unmind App, personal medical cover (which you can opt to upgrade to cover loved ones) and critical illness cover.
•    {Season ticket loans}
•    The option to buy and sell holiday to suit your jet setting lifestyle.

Next Steps:
If you think you've got some outstanding skills to offer us, and Virgin Media feels like a place where you can belong, we'd love to learn more about you. If your application is successful, the next steps of the process are likely to include an initial telephone conversation with a member of our Recruitment team, followed by a competency-based video interview with the Hiring Manager.

When you apply, you'll be asked about any adjustments you might need to support the recruitment process. Let us know and we'll be sure to discuss it with you.

Thanks for your patience in the meantime and for showing an interest in joining the Virgin Media family
