Technology and Product Director
We are excited to be recruiting a Technology and Product Director. The Brilliant Club has launched its new strategy in 2016, The Path to Outcomes, in which we have committed to delivering consistent and reliable outcomes for our pupils. This includes a pledge to support 6,500 pupils from under-represented backgrounds to progress to highly-selective universities by 2021.
This role will lead the development of the charity’s digital platforms and internal infrastructure, ensuring that they create the best possible experience for users and support pupils in growing the knowledge, skills and ambition needed to progress to highly-selective universities. This will include oversight of our IT systems, Salesforce development, a virtual learning environment for pupils (VLE) and our Impact Toolkit for teachers. In particular, the role includes working with users and IT developers to ensure our platforms are engaging, accessible and well-maintained.
The role requires a driven and focused leader, with experience in managing the development of software. They will oversee the online platforms through which pupils and teachers will engage with The Brilliant Club as well as managing external developers and overseeing the charity’s IT infrastructure. This will require them to collaborate across the charity to ensure that the technology fits with the needs of the charity. They will also need to build partnerships outside the charity.
The successful candidate will be an experienced professional, with experience in the following areas: web development projects; impact management and quantitative analysis. They will manage projects effectively, co-ordinating activities, tracking progress and delivering results, and take interest in new technologies and trends. We think this is a great opportunity to join The Brilliant Club at a time when technology efficiency is a key part of charity’s strategy.
