Digital Producer (Maternity Cover)
Who You'll Be Working With
A really neat design and branding agency with a focus on the world of retail. They have a great range of clients and deliver everything from brand strategy, end to end retail design, communications campaigns and digital interactive. Culture wise it's massively collaborative - the creatives are client facing, everybody mucks in, and although they are a very well established name in the industry they have a flexible and nimble approach to delivering their (award winning) work.
What You'll Be Doing
It's a hugely varied role. The core of your job is that of a producer or production manager: scoping work with the client, managing budgets and timelines, oversight of traffic and resource, and getting work out of the door on time. Your main focus from a project point of view will be on the digital side of things - predominantly motion graphics design and interactive installations but you'll be collaborating with the rest of the agency from a process point of view. Supplier management and managing a little black book of freelance resource will also be a part of the role. Lastly, you'll be quite client facing: the agency don't have account or project managers across the board so you will be client facing from the outset (though not expected to grow revenue, just do a good job of delivering the work).
A lot of variety, and it won't be for everyone, but if you like a job where no day is the same, you deliver a range of work, and you have a broad range of responsibilities then this is the one for you.
Who You'll Be
Given the range of responsibilities of this role I'm looking for somebody with a flexible, adaptable approach who can tweak their process on a project by project basis but knows how to (gently) put their foot down when needed. Strong experience as a producer or production manager within an agency environment is a must, ideally within the retail/design and branding space. Experience in the world of digital interactive (say for a museum exhibit style project) would be a massive plus, but if you have worked on a variety of outputs that's the key thing.
As always the usual personality traits apply, this business is collaborative, open, friendly and down to earth. They expect you to be the same!
