THE JOB TITLE: Product Manager
THE PRODUCT: OEM Automotive Parts
THE SALARY PACKAGE: Up to £45,000 Basic + Benefits
THE LOCATION: Wolverhampton
With an ever-increasing product portfolio, this organisation is future proofing the expansion they are going through with an additional team member to take responsibility for a number of key product areas. Therefore, this exciting role has just been newly created for an experienced product manager.
THE ROLE OF A PRODUCT MANAGER:
As a product manager, you will be getting stuck into a huge variety of tasks and responsibilities all with the aim of working from cradle to grave across product groups, with the objective of increasing growth and sales.
Some of the parts of your role will include:
- Assisting in the entire lifecycle management of different product categories
- Catalogue / Cross-referencing control
- Pricing & Price related queries
- Operational and stock control
- Supervision of assistant product managers
- Liaising closely with marketing on campaigns
- Range analysis
Key areas that will determine and measure your success in this role include your ability to deliver products that align with the market’s needs, budgets and position. This covers the full lifecycle from conception through development, delivery, support, service and termination.
This isn’t a purely analytical role either and you will be able to spread your creative wings by working closely with the marketing department, helping to input on marketing material such as brochures, campaigns and advertising media.
EXPERIENCE IDEALLY REQUIRED FOR A PRODUCT MANAGER:
Due to this type of role and what is involved, experience is as important as your attitude and your approach.
A background in automotive is not required (although would clearly be advantageous) but having strong experience within a product management role is. Of course, with a role of this nature, IT skills are also important and it is expected that you would have a strong IT literacy with particularly good Microsoft excel knowledge.
SAP experience would be useful but wouldn’t be a requirement as you will receive any and all training required to reach your potential.
