A great opportunity has arisen for a Project Manager to join an award-winning integrated communications agency based in the heart of Manchester.

This is a key role within the agency where you will work very closely with the creative and account handling teams overseeing the smooth process of projects from concept to production. On a daily basis, you’ll be working on a number of fast-paced retail accounts which will include design, print, POS through to packaging. Needless to say, you will ensure that all projects are handled effectively and are completed to budget and within specified deadlines.

Within this role, you will also be liaising with clients on to check on design, costs and timescales ensuring they are kept up to speed with the progress of projects. It’s varied role, so no day will be the same and you will also benefit form working in a team which is both supportive and collaborative. All projects will be handled from initial concept through to final delivery and will successfully translate their briefs into artwork, copy and design briefs, before effectively delegating them to your team.

For this role, we are looking for someone who has a true passion for overseeing the delivery of projects, as apposed to the more strategic aspect of account management. The role is going to suit someone with around three to four years’ experience which has been gained within an agency environment. We are keen to hear Account Managers looking to take the leap into project management, or production/studio managers who have solid artwork management experience. Needless to say you should be solutions focused, pragmatic and a real team player and in return you will have the opportunity to develop professionally, gain support and become a part of an award-winning team.

If this sounds like a role that you could really get your teeth stuck into, then please send your CV to contact@afselection.co.uk, or for more information call Simon on 0161 425 7352 for an inside track on the role, company, location and all the bits you probably can’t see in this ad!!
