Head of Functional Proposition and User Experience

£55-65,000 dependant on experience + package with flexible working around core hours

Located in the highly prestigious St Peter’s Square development in the city centre, Distrelec are establishing their new Enterprise Hub and hiring Head of Functional Proposition and User Experience.

The Enterprise Hub will be the European centre for the implementation of their new digital operations that will deliver all online trading, marketing and technical deliveries for the organisation. 

Distrelec, part of the Datwyler group, is a leading online distributor for electronics, automation, measurement technology, IT and accessories in Europe and the exciting new Enterprise Hub in Manchester will be its first operational presence in the UK.

This is an exciting time to be joining their business. Are you up for the challenge?

The role:

Managing a team of up to 7 specialists, you will build a commercially focused roadmap of online capabilities prioritised through analysis and understanding the wider business priorities for online development. As part of the role, you will articulate detailed functional requirements as online capabilities move from the roadmap and into the technical delivery plan. 

Key accountabilities:

You will maintain and develop a complete customer focused vision of the online proposition, ensuring that the user experience is second to none throughout. Your team will include Product Owners, User Experience architects and Business Analysts, who will define optimised online propositions.  

Skills & experience:

Your previous experience should include broad experience across a number of different e-commerce disciplines, which include SEO, functional design, creative design, content management, online marketing (PPC, email, affiliate, merchandising) and data/information management. You will play a vital part in the digital transformation of the company and will be in a strong, growing team.    


In addition to the supportive and collaborative work environment, you can expect:

  • Excellent flex benefits package together with a bonus for every member of staff + pension
  • Flexible working around core hours
  • 25 days holiday with option to purchase/sell additional days
  • Grade A offices with great transport access
  • Opportunity to influence the way we work

By joining the Datwyler family, you will not only enjoy the security, opportunities and benefits that come with the security of a global organisation, but also experience the excitement that a start-up business has to offer.

Distrelec is looking for people who are solution seekers, ready to roll up their sleeves and who are motivated to get things done. Distrelec aspires to be the most dominant distributor in the electro component market by serving its customers through understanding their challenges and seeking solutions to meet their needs.

Distrelec’s leadership believe that drive and passion are key to success. They are a customer focused company with big ambitions and an exciting journey ahead.
