Project Manager

Our client is a branding and design agency with a great name in the industry. They've got a top range of clients, a supportive and hands-on management team, and an excellent track record for delivering highly creative work across brand design, strategy, and digital design projects. They are looking for a project director to join their delivery team to focus on branding.

Culture wise they have a polished but personable and refreshingly honest approach to working with their clients, while internally they are extremely collaborative, both within and between teams.

They are currently spending 40% of their time in the office, one fixed, one flexible, though people are more than welcome to go in more if they prefer!

What You'll Be Doing

The core of the role is very much that of a traditional branding agency project director! You'll be:

  • Working closely with account directors to look after a range of client relationships. There is a roughly 70:30 balance of PM vs AM responsibilities.
  • Taking complete ownership of delivering programmes of work from briefing through to delivery. This includes scoping, budgeting, timelines and managing project wrap up.
  • Working with creatives, designers and strategists to deliver brand identity development, evolution, strategy, guidelines and a range of design collateral.
  • Resourcing for the folio of projects along with the rest of the delivery team.
  • Supporting and mentoring a pair of project managers on a daily basis.

Like all creative agency roles, you'll probably end up getting involved in a little more than this though, so be prepared to roll your sleeves up!

Who We're Looking For

We're looking for someone with solid project management experience, some of which should have been developed in a branding agency (though of course working in a range of agency environments is totally fine!). Strong project management skills and the ability to juggle a lot of moving parts is key, as is having an articulate and personable approach to client management with enough EQ to read a room. Experience working closely with strategists as well as designers and creatives is a big plus.

As a senior member of the team (reporting directly to the head of delivery) we're expecting a level of gravitas, the ability to steer large programmes of work, and experience in managing or mentoring junior team members.

All the usual personality traits apply - we are after somebody who wants to roll their sleeves up and muck in with a tight knit, highly collaborative team.
