Who You'll Be Working With
One of London's most well established branding and design agencies are looking to add a project manager to the team! They've got a list of immediately recognisable brands as clients, a very well established team of project managers, an extremely strong resource / creative services manager to keep the plates spinning, and a strong, collaborative, team ethos. They cover everything from brand identity and strategy, through to digital design and build projects and some elements of comms. While their office is also rather nice, they are going to be highly flexible with work moving forwards, with a 3:2 split of in the office vs remote being their baseline moving forwards.
What You'll Be Doing
As a Project Manager you will be overseeing a range of branding projects covering brand identity, architecure and design. This will including budgeting, managing timescales, and then overseeing teams on a project by project basis. You'll have an excellent studio behind you to help you leaving you free to be take a more strategic viewpoint and, while there is a very strong team of account managers you'll still be just the right amount of client facing, with responsibility for pulling together full scopes of work and setting budgets and end to end delivery. In terms of the structure around you, you will be one of a team oftwelve including a delivery director and three project directors, one of whom you'll be reporting into. In a nutshell, you'll be trusted to take control of your projects from end to end but will have the support of the wider team and a lot of people to learn from.
Who You'll Be
Experience in delivering branding and design projects is essential. You need to know how deliver projects ranging from identity, brand architecture and design from end to end, as well as be comfortable with ownership of large budgets and good with clients when needed. Again, we don't need you to be building out an account as the client services team do that, but you will give clients confidence that you can deliver large, complicated projects from end to end. If you have experience delivering digital design work (spanning experience design and web build) that would be a nice to have!
That to the side, culture is key with these guys. We need somebody who seizes the initiative, thrives on being busy (and keeping yourself busy should your projects get a little quiet), and most importantly is a grounded people person.
