We are looking for a brilliant project manager to join our team. With significant growth planned for 2022, this person will be central to delivering projects for many of our clients. Following a string of client wins, the successful candidate will be joining an agency on the up and it’s an opportunity to join at the start of the next chapter for the business.
The role will be extremely varied – from managing product launch campaigns from start to finish, the creation of a new website or managing virtual events – they will be the lynchpin for setting-up, managing and successfully delivering projects for success. They’ll be part of an experienced team, who are experts in their field, so they’ll have all the resources needed to get the job done.
We also look after every member of our team, with plenty of benefits on offer and a great environment to work in.
