The Project Manager will work with specialists in each area (Planners, Creatives, Marketing Managers) to finalise and deliver each element of a brief.
Project Managers will have a great deal of client contact. As such they must
be very personable and enjoy this side of project management. They will be
involved from the very start of projects, but will be particularly responsible for
guiding clients though the production process, writing status reports and
attending client meetings. They must be comfortable presenting work to clients, and know where to draw the line between being flexible to the client and protecting the agencies interests. They also must be comfortable managing a budget, reconciling costs and effort spent, and having an overall financial control on the account.
Experience in delivering / managing digital projects
Not all of this needs to have been spent specifically as a digital PM, but ideally at least 50% of it. Experience handling clients is a must, as well a good portfolio of wide-ranging digital projects successfully delivered on time and on budget.
They must have in depth technical knowledge that is bourn out of experience in delivering a multitude of different projects. We're looking for an understanding of technical languages, platforms, and what it takes to deliver technically led builds.
We're not looking for someone who has the skills of a developer, more the ability to understand technical development and be able to hold a client's hand through the
Eye for detail
We're looking for someone has a keen eye for detail, and has the ability to be all over every single aspect of a project. They must understand each element on a campaign and be comfortable talking about each one. They must know about the different marketing spikes of a campaign, through to knowing what stage the
technical build is at and what platform we're delivering for.
Agency client-service experience
We're looking for a Project Manager with good agency pedigree. Someone who knows what it's like to deliver top notch projects for great clients, at award winning agencies, and can manage a client’s projects and account.
Our Project Managers
should be aware of wider communications/marketing trends and culture as a
whole, taking inspiration from it and being able to see where digital (whether for personal or commercial use) fits into the wider world.
Confident and articulate
Our Project Managers aren't locked away simply delivering projects. They
collaborate with all elements of the Agency to develop and deliver those ideas and - crucially - can articulate those ideas passionately and clearly in written and spoken form to clients.
