This role is integral to TUI Group’s transformation, creating common digital platforms across our organisation that help us deliver a more personalised customer experience and significantly improved business performance.

You will lead a team of Product Owners and Business Analysts to define our product vision, requirements, product roadmap and prioritised backlog. Outcome is one common platform across all parts of TUI Group.

You will engage with our business teams to define prioritised needs and work with our Technology teams to deliver a prioritised roadmap. You will transition the focus from traditional to digital marketing to deliver a truly omnichannel marketing capability.

You will direct product development, translating ideas into strategy and features, and work with technology to follow product development from start to finish.

How you will make an impact

Manage the overall roadmap and backlog to deliver the committed platform business benefits (£20m+ margin benefits per year). Ensure strong backlog health that supports forecasted velocity.

Leverage customer and market insights to shape requirements, features and end products.

Lead the collaboration with senior stakeholders (Centres of Excellence, markets, functions, brands) to ensure features are aligned to business needs. You will drive the product features and priorities, using data points to influence and make decisions.

Manage and develop a strong relationship with the relevant Platform Suppliers. Leverage maximum value from the capabilities and understand and help shape their Product roadmap.

Lead cross-functional teams to develop and implement new capabilities and features and ensure User Acceptance Testing is conducted prior to go live. Lead the scrum of scrums.

Define dependencies from other platforms and functions (e.g. Digital Platform Data Services) and ensure these are understood and prioritised appropriately, linked to benefits.

You will be required to travel, usually 1 day per week, in order to manage cross-market projects and influence key market stakeholders (functional directors and department heads).

Lead, manage, coach and develop a team of 4-5 (Product Owners and Business Analysts) ensuring they have clear direction and priorities.
