An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced and enthusiastic product manager to join BMJ on an initial 12 month contract based in central London.

For that to happen we need you to develop a detailed and deep understanding of the needs of authors and reviewers, in order to advocate for them. To develop this understanding you’ll talk to authors, reviewers and funders of research and work with BMJ’s in-house user research, UX design, and data insights teams. You will develop innovative ideas for our authors’ experience that will reduce their workload and make BMJ the most attractive publisher for their research.
