Newcastle Building Society’s purpose is to connect communities in the North East with a better financial future.
As a Product Propositions and Innovation Manager within the Product Development team, you will work closely with key stakeholders across the society including marketing, intermediary distribution and our customer service centre to develop the savings and mortgage proposition roadmap.
As part of Newcastle Building Society, you will be working in an exciting, friendly and fast-paced workplace, with great opportunities for self-development and career progression where you can realise your potential and do your best work.
Reporting to, and working closely with, the Head of Product Development, the Product Propositions Manager will play a key role in developing our mortgage and savings roadmap, helping to achieve our commercial objectives by delivering propositions that align with our member’s needs. Building relationships and engaging with senior leaders across the Society plays a large part in the role, with the aim of understanding how consumer’s needs are changing, alongside supporting the Society’s commercial plans.
Having worked in financial services and gained expert knowledge of the mortgage and savings marketplace, the successful applicant will be required to work independently, attaining information from both inside and outside of the society with the aim of creating and achieving ambitious business plans. You will be required to work closely with the Product Development team and other contributors to ensure propositions are successfully managed through to completion, whilst supporting the delivery of the strategy through proactive engagement with distribution, finance, risk and operations.
You will be joining an experienced and enthusiastic Product Development team at an exciting time of growth in the Society’s history.
As part of our offer, we provide a great work/life balance and access to an Employee Assistance Programme to support your health and wellbeing. Our benefits also include 30 days annual leave, a corporate bonus scheme, discounted travel schemes and free or subsidised gym access, amongst many others.
