Position Summary:

We have an exciting opportunity for a Senior Director, Product Strategy, to join us on a 12 month maternity cover and help lead the strategic vision for our preschool subscription portfolio.
Reporting into the VP Digital Preschool, and with support from the Director of Product Management, you will lead a team of Product Managers to build a strong and cohesive portfolio strategy that reflects the division's commercial goals in line with the audience, brand and business priorities.

You will be joining the division at an exciting time, with one successful subscription app – World of Peppa Pig – already in market and two additional products launching this year.

Key Responsibilities:

Subscription Portfolio Revenue Growth & Optimisation:
• Leverage and perform deep product analysis, user research, market trends and competitor analysis to identify threats and maximise opportunities for revenue growth across the subscription portfolio.
• Develop the business case for new growth initiatives, considering strategic, commercial and technology value, and build support to get them green lighted.
• Build strong relationships with the Global Brand teams across the wider eOne & Hasbro business, exploring opportunities to create new revenue streams and extend our portfolio, subsequently validating hypotheses for new products and driving towards product-market fit.
• Develop a deep knowledge and understanding of the eOne and Hasbro business; collaborate with key stakeholders to create synergies across the Hasbro blueprint.
• Partner with Data & Analytics and Marketing Director to ensure products positioning, pricing and distribution maximise revenue growth.
• Understand how market and policy/standards movements will impact our portfolio and pivot strategy as needed.

Product Management Team Leadership:

• Collaborate closely with external counsel, Business Affairs, and the Product Mangers to ensure all products remain compliant with local regulations relating to the children's digital space i.e., COPPA, GDPR-K, ICO Design Code.
• Drive monetization and business model optimization through design, experimentation, and analysis. Instil a test and learn culture across teams, so that teams are running experiments to test ideas and hypotheses and capture data that we can use to improve or create new end to end customer experiences.
• Forecast revenues for the subscription portfolio and provide regular performance against target updates to senior stakeholders.

Key Competencies/Experience:
• Demonstrable leadership and excellent stakeholder management

• A track record of delivering digital experiences for world-class brands on a global scale.
• Experience of optimising products through testing, analysis, and customer research.
• B2C subscription experience within a digital business.
• A passion for children's brands and a good understanding of customer behaviours and what influences the parents of pre-schoolers.
