  • Driving the successful implementation of initiatives to realise benefit from pricing. This involves working with key stakeholders within Business units and the Group to plan and execute all aspects of operationalisation (including technology enablers, sales enablement, KPI definition and ongoing tracking)
  • Conduct annual reviews of price books used across the business and recommend modifications to list price structures and levels
  • Development and implementation of packaging strategies – both within individual business units, and for customers purchasing products from multiple group businesses
  • Support the implementation of best practice pricing approaches across the group, and facilitate knowledge sharing
  • Support in determining the appropriate packaging and prices for new products to be released. This may include conducting market research, as well as collaborating with product and marketing teams
  • Lead regular pricing reporting meetings, including collaborating with the Data team to design pricing dashboards, monitor key pricing indicators using these dashboards as well as ad-hoc pricing deep dives, and compile regular reports to communicate the key findings of these dashboards to senior Business Unit and Group stakeholders
