Facilitate pre-sprint activities and prioritize Service Desk items into the backlog.
Deliver clear, concise user stories and acceptance criteria.
Ensure capture, refinement, and prioritization of technical debt and NFRs across all sprints.
Assist in preparing system demos per iteration and contribute to PI demos.
Maintain feature quality and integrity within technical and team boundaries, identifying and addressing risks and dependencies.
Contribute to key Product Management meetings and define metrics for measuring the success and performance of prioritized work.
Establish and foster a community of Technical Product Owners.
Analyse and prioritise Service Desk/BAU barriers and collaborate with Product Management.
Work with teams to identify and capture IT-driven innovation ideas, consolidating across peer groups for review by TPM/TPO and Product Management communities.

To be considered for this role, candidates should possess:

Demonstrable experience with Agile methodologies, preferably within a Scaled Agile Framework.
Strong business acumen and strategic thinking skills.
Understanding of business analysis principles, processes, and techniques.
Analytical thinking and problem-solving abilities, with the capacity to communicate complex ideas clearly across functional and technical departments.
