The speed read:
A highly creative agency within a global PR and comms business is looking for an exceptional Senior Project Director to work with the MD and lead the team to continued success.
The agency (around 25 people) produces award winning creative through any channel: brands and brand experience, campaign, content, websites, events and social. Whatever it takes to help a brand earn attention and tell their story to customers, staff, partners and others (b2b and b2c, in any sector).
This job is a 3 way split:
- People management. You won’t be stuck in the weeds, but you know what a brilliantly run project looks like. You bring process, order and accountability to a team of 5. You know the drill: on brief, on budget.
- Commercial savviness. You love numbers and can report on and manage the studio’s P&L (you will have plenty of support from above and from your team). You know what agency success looks like. You can present at a senior level and can scope out a large project and proposal as needed.
- You will also have good production knowledge across different creative output (you don’t need to be an expert, but have a good generalist understanding). You know what it takes to deliver smoothly run projects and you know what great creative looks like. This agency has an enviable client list that just keeps growing.
This agency has lots of senior people running large accounts in their sector teams, so you can manage senior stakeholders’ expectations with confidence and a likeable authority.
Note re home working: this agency has adapted brilliantly to the climate that we all find ourselves in. Flexible working will be possible, but you will also be someone who wants to spend a decent amount of time face to face with your team, to build trust and get results.
- Love a fast-paced environment
- Have been in an agency and can operate at a senior level with confidence
- Have at least 8+ years’ relevant experience
- Are great with people from any discipline and are a natural relationship builder
- Are a brilliant mentor, always leading by example.
Fantastic amounts of energy, likeability and ambition.
