Five ways freelancers can help your business

Why use freelancers? Well, usually there is a time pressure or a resource pressure. An agency has won a new piece of business and the income allows them to plan for the future. But they don’t want the headache of managing the extra headcount, especially when delivering a short-term project. Hiring contractors will help ease the pressure and enable them to deliver.

Frequently asked questions

What does a product manager do?

A product manager has overall responsibility for a digital product or products. They oversee the strategy and plan and spec for that product, working closely with technology, business stakeholders, marketing, design and UX to ensure the customer gets what they need.

A product manager must juggle business goals, customer happiness and technology feasibility. They are responsible for the overall profit and loss of a product.

Do I need a qualification to become a product manager?

You don't need a qualification, which means it can be difficult to identify a clear path into this area. A lot of product managers come from a computer science background, move into a technical role and then into product.

Others work their way up from junior roles as they understand the business, the customers and the technical capabilities of building products.

What are employers looking for on a product manager's CV?

The impact the product manager has had in a company. Highlight the products you delivered and specific impacts they had. Examples might be increasing users, great return on investment, or a shift in the way the business operates thanks to your digital products.

Building new features and products is a long process, so it is important to show you have been in previous roles for a decent amount of time.
