Mid Weight Digital Producer/Project Manager (12649)

London

Permanent

£35,000 - £45,000

+

Mid-Weight Digital Producer/Project Manager

My Client is an independent, strategic-led creative agency with digital at its core. They create highly effective interactive work through insightful strategy, innovative ideas and beautifully crafted experiences that people want to share.

They think differently about digital. They don’t start with technology ideas or digital channels; they start by understanding people and their behaviours to create ideas that answer real human problems.

They’re looking for a hands-on, agency-experienced individual with exceptional project management skills to join the Client’s team as a Mid-Weight Project Manager. This individual will be working across campaigns, social and website design and build projects. This will involve managing a range of projects, including both new builds and maintenance.

You must be creative, strategic, and technical, believe in exceptional delivery and have a good understanding of all things digital. You should be a self-starter and immensely proud of your achievements, whilst appreciating the need for process.

Most importantly you should be calm natured, able to manage your own time, and able to communicate effectively with different levels of stakeholders. You should be comfortable working on a fast-paced account, and experience in automotive is a big plus.

To be considered you will need to demonstrate strong interpersonal skills, and have good knowledge of techniques for scoping and delivering projects (we work in both Agile and Waterfall). If you are looking for a job where you can make a big difference and feel a part of something, then we’re off to a good start.

The Role

Reporting into Head of Project Management your responsibilities will include:

Scoping, planning and specification of key projects.

Working closely with Client Services, but also being comfortable as the main client contact on projects during the production lifecycle.

Responsible for ‘driving’ the client for their deliverables. This includes risks and issues management and knowing when to escalate.

Responsible for ‘driving’ internal resources, from Directors to interns.

Responsible for the profitability of these projects.

This is a delivery-focused role. It’s crucial that you have demonstrated experience thatshows that you can manage projects effectively within time, scope and budget.

Responsible for managing the quality and delivery of third-party services.

Ensure the utmost quality in creative.

Work closely with the Client Services team throughout the project to manage client expectations.

Experience and Skills

You’ll be an experienced and confident client-facing PM with a minimum of 3 years of agency experience.

You will be able to demonstrate a fundamental grasp of the principles of project management – ideally you will have training in Agile.

Experience delivering integrated campaigns, including print, social, digital and OOH/DOOH.

Experience of delivering projects with budgets in excess of £50,000.

Confidence in reporting effectively on project performance to internal teams and client stakeholders.

Proven experience in managing projects profitably within complex stakeholder environments.

Excellent and efficient communication skills both written and verbal.

Experience across web builds and e-commerce projects.

Experience in requirements gathering and functional specification.

Experience with Project Management tools (e.g. JIRA, Asana, MS Project (or similar)).

Bright, ambitious, entrepreneurial, likeable, fun and ready for a challenge.

Experience in managing pitch teams would be a bonus.

What type of person should you be?

My Client is a small, close-knit team of committed individuals that see themselves as a bit of a family. So as you’d expect, the personal qualities of the people they hire are often just as important as the skills they bring.

The people who thrive at the Agency are intelligent, passionate self-starters who truly care about the work they do. To succeed you’ll be the sort of person who is proud of their achievements, but driven to improve and achieve more.

My Client keeps things simple and operate a very flat structure. They’ll want you to use your undoubted intelligence to challenge, disrupt and question their thinking, but they’ll expect to do the same to you. They aren’t motivated by fancy job titles. Good people quickly earn all the influence and respect they can handle at this Agency. For many, the greatest reward is seeing their idea have real impact in the marketplace.
They believe people are the key to a great agency, so they treat their people well.

They’re a social bunch;

• Our parties are pretty legendary. We’ve been to Latitude festival for a summer outing, Brighton for a Christmas shindig, Barcelona for our 10 year anniversary, put on a ping pong championship, and taken the whole company for a long-weekend ski trip.

We love to learn and develop

• We hold two social events each month, one boozy and one educational.
