Due to the pandemic this role is currently remote and even before the onset of the 'new normal' we have successfully run flexible working arrangements for a number of years that considers the tam's personal needs.

However we are a creative, sociable bunch and value face to face collaboration and staff meets that don't involve Google or Zoom. So if you value this too we will love working with you in person, in our studio, the old fashioned way.

Please send a detailed cover letter with your CV so we can learn a bit more about you; why you are a PM, what you think makes a successful one, why you love what you do, and what you love to do outside of work (pandemic restrictions aside!).
