- Research and understand what customers want and how they might act to proposed changes
- Advise on which products or services should be launched, when they should launch and how they should launch
- Plan tests and trials of new services and decide whether they’re right for our consumers
- Work with technical teams to make impactful changes to existing products and services

What is involved with studying for an apprenticeship?
Your apprenticeship is made up of learning on the job, but also gaining the academic skills to put into practice in your day-to-day job. As a result, you’ll complete the apprenticeship as part of a structured learning programme alongside working in the role. The learning programme is made up of a suite of modules and milestones and you’ll be required to evidence your work against these modules via tasks and assignments. For some apprenticeships, you may also undertake additional technical qualifications, which include studying for, and taking an exam. Once you have completed your modules and milestones, you’ll then move to your End Point Assessment (EPA) which is typically made up of an interview and a project. Once you pass this stage, you will receive your apprenticeship qualification with us.
