Product Marketing Lead

Join Social Value Portal as they are looking for a Product Marketing Lead

Who are we?

We’re a company on a mission to deliver £100bn in Social Value to help people, places and the planet thrive. We launched in 2014 and within a short time have become the market leader in measurement and reporting of Social Value in the UK. The market is young and rapidly growing and we have recently received investment to further scale the business, both in the UK and internationally.

We’re a fast-growing SaaS scale-up, with over £16bn of Social Value being tracked through our digital platform to date. We have a suite of user-friendly, online collaboration tools that enable our clients in the public, private and voluntary sectors to work together to deliver Social Value. Our core offering is an evidence-led social value measurement framework, called the Social Value TOM System (Themes, Outcomes and Measures). We not only provide a platform, but our proposition also spans a consultancy division, as well as a new Social Value learning academy.

About the role

This role will own proposition development and how we take them to market, including new products. In this role, you will own the ‘Go To Market’ plan, roadmap and targets for all new initiatives. You will develop a thorough understanding of the target audiences, their needs and how SVP can make a real difference to their lives.

Who we are looking for

You’ll be self-motivated individual, keen to come in and quickly establish relationships and a plan to get things done. The role will suit someone with a delivery mind-set, who has a solid, pragmatic approach and has a passion for collaboration. You’ll be comfortable at lightning speed, leaving in your wake robust mechanisms for tracking and demonstrating success.

You’ll love understanding how people tick and developing ways to connect with them, through a clear understanding of how we provide benefits – not products. You’ll also be switched on commercially. And we need ideas. Bold ones, small ones, any ideas which will help fast track how we achieve our goals.

Attitude is everything, so if your glass is half full and you’re up for a fast ride, come and join us!
