Senior Digital Project Manager

Over the last decade The Unit has maintained a passion, focus and drive to help everyone from startups to the world's biggest companies design, optimise and deliver digital products and services that are simple, effective and easy to use.

To do this we need your talent! The Unit has an exciting opportunity for a Senior Digital Project Manager to join our digital design agency in the heart of the North Laine. 

A Project Manager at The Unit is an integral part of our team and the role spans a variety of business functions. From the nuts and bolts of day-to-day project management and account management, you’ll also play a pivotal part in supporting business development activities.

You’ll be collaborating with a creative, multi-disciplined team of UX/UI Designers and Full Stack Developers, applying strong previous PM experience in the delivery of varied and interesting digital projects. You’ll be using your excellent client-management skills to build strong collaborative relationships with key stakeholders and clients, who you’ll engage in proactive conversations about new commercial opportunities.  As a Senior PM you’ll have the experience and confidence to work autonomously, be confident in your decisions and take pride in the high quality of output across everything you do. 

About you:

  • You’ll be a strong communicator; you’ll be able to build rapport quickly and nurture long term relationships with internal teams and externally with clients

  • You’ll have superb written skills and a sharp eye for detail which you’ll use to produce SOW’s, proposals and other new business deliverables that are of a consistently high standard.

  • Self-motivated, independent and with an acute sense of personal responsibility; you take ownership of your projects, escalating only when needed.

  • You’re positive and calm; your peers see you as a team player and you’ll always consider the bigger picture when making key decisions 

  • You’ll successfully ensure the smooth initiation, management and delivery of your projects through strong leadership and project management best practice.

  • Organised and focussed; your time management is second to none and you can manage multiple commitments at once

  • You’ll have a thorough understanding of Agile methodologies, you can plan and run engaging client meetings, show and tells, sprint reviews, daily standups, sprint planning and retrospective sessions

  • You’ll ideally have agency exposure and working with similar digital disciplines over the full project lifecycle

  • Adaptable, flexible and pragmatic; you tailor your approach on each project to fit each client and project requirements, and are always ready to face new challenges and evolve with the ever changing nature of agency life

  • Calm and professional; you are comfortable with contributing and participating in key  pitch and presentation teams

  • You’ll be strategic and commercially aware and willing to contribute to company growth, you’ll drive change and help to streamline internal processes and client deliverables.

This past year has seen a seismic shift in how and where we work. At the Unit we have operated a flexible approach for a number of years so the leap to remote working has been an easy transition and one which we will continue to embrace with hybrid work patterns.

However we have also learnt that what we also really value is face to face collaboration, in-person workshops, office banter and team activities that aren’t entirely over Zoom. So we’d really like you to be as enthusiastic as us about spending some of your working time in the studio with your teammates.
