We are looking for someone with excellent market research, content development and influencing skills to join a leading professional publisher based in London. Our client is looking for a Standards Development Manager to join them responsible for managing and developing a portfolio of standards. This will be a hybrid role with occasional office working in London where required.
You will be working closely with committees of industry experts in the area of the portfolio to lead the creation process of the standards. It's crucial that you are able to facilitate the conversations in the committees to ensure that you are balancing market needs, user requirements and gaining consensus among the committee. This information will then feed into the creation of the standards and so quality and full representation are highly important.
In the role you will be identifying gaps in the market and engaging with key industry stakeholders to develop new products, progressing the standards into publication stage keeping everything on track and liaising across other departments to progress product opportunities and developing business cases.
If you're proactive, driven and a strong influencer with demonstrable skills in product development then this could be a great opportunity for you.
