The Role
Project managers are the glue that helps keep projects — and people — together. The Project Manager is responsible for the proactive management of internal agency processes through all stages of a project – planning, strategic development, creative development, and production.

The project scope can vary from single pieces of collateral to multifaceted, multichannel marketing campaigns.

This role requires interaction with a range of internal and external stakeholders, most often managing multiple moving project parts simultaneously. This person will work under the direction of agency leadership and will report to the Senior Project Manager. They will coordinate with the account and production teams, from whom they collect project information — deadlines, objectives, budgets, etc. They assign individuals or entire teams to tasks within the project, while creating and managing detailed schedules throughout the duration of the project. They must have knowledge of the larger landscape without neglecting granular details.

The Project Manager will play a central role in risk analysis. They must be adept at identifying potential roadblocks related to budgets, resources and timelines, and proactively resolve the issues. And when necessary reporting potential issues to their supervisors and teammates.

The Project Manager contributes to the agency’s ability to deliver client satisfaction by ensuring each project is staffed correctly and delivered on time and to the highest possible standard for the agreed budget.
