As an agency they offer flexible working hours, the freedom to work from home and all the support & guidance you’d look for in an employer. With an impressive client base across a number of reputable brands, they have their sights set on international client growth and this role is key to that.

  • Highly organised with experience of using JIRA

Through your Project Management approach you’ll have the ability to mitigate risks, meticulously manage timelines and budgets and work closely alongside a Design and Development team to run daily stand ups.

The leadership team are open and supportive and the team ethic is one that is talked about by many for being fun, passionate and always collaborative.

This role would suit an experienced Digital Project Manager who is looking to step into a role where you’ll not only lead on key client web projects, but you’ll also have the opportunity to really shape a team and put your stamp on the agencies approach to project management as a whole.
