The role holder will initially spend most of their time providing excellent organisational PM support to one of our key clients, but we’ll also look to you to have a light touch understanding across all agency projects. With a demonstrable understanding of how an agency operates, both in structure and pace, you’ll confidently hit the ground running, aided by your considerable project management experience in a similar role (added bonus would be experience in the Agri sector).
You’ll be comfortable with financial and process project manageable deliverables
Demonstrating excellent financial management and use of financial project management systems, the role will also require extensive quoting and scope of work production and project management to ensure delivery of projects within time and on budget. This confidence in system use and implementation will continue with our project and traffic management systems (we currently use Float, Trello and WorkflowMax – experience in any of these would be desirable but not essential).
You will be confident taking responsibility for organisation of content production
We work across multiple channels from print to social, web, video and more and we’ll look to you to demonstrate your excellent organisational skills in all areas. This will be particularly evident in your print production project management, demonstrating understanding and experience of working with copywriters, strong proofing knowledge and ability to comfortably brief writers, often working with complex, scientific literature.
You will be an expert facilitator
Whether ensuring an efficient design process – briefing designers and understanding & supporting the artwork process for both digital & print requirements - or acting as an ‘unblocker’ throughout the project life cycle. You’ll resolve problems, anticipate issues, and work with all agency staff to ensure movement. With clear, confident, and accurate verbal and written communication you’ll be able to rely on knowledge to judge situations appropriately and take correct action.
You will knowledgeably demonstrate the bridge between project management and creative
Demonstrating your ability and belief in supporting a creative team to remain inspired and at the top of their game, you’ll be able to provide creative input based on in depth understanding of the commercial and creative requirements including briefing creative where appropriate and critiquing work. Pragmatic with a creative flare, you’ll be a solution provider at every level.
You will thrive within a team and actively support those around you
Mentoring and providing operational support to the more junior members of the team, you’ll be passionate in the ability of the PM team in providing a key role within a creative industry and encourage those around you to strive to ‘be the best’.
In addition to a competitive salary, we offer a comprehensive package of benefits to help with life both inside and outside of work. Visit our Careers page for more information.
