About the job
We are looking for a positive and proactive part time (22.5 hours) Project Manager to deliver our projects for clients using our BrandStencil software platform, mainly template development and feature requests. You’ll also get involved in delivering our roadmap, helping us to continuously improve the product.
This is a fantastic opportunity to be integral to the development of the BrandStencil product and to shape your own role as the customer base continues to grow.
You will be responsible for;
Initiating projects effectively to align with client requirements whilst managing expectations
Creating project plans including timelines and requirements
Managing estimates and budgets for projects
Scheduling and resourcing projects
Identifying and mitigating against risks
Reviewing artwork sent to you by clients using Adobe Illustrator or InDesign
Managing client correspondence and updates throughout the project process
Briefing developers - in-house and contractors to deliver the work
Rigorous testing to meet our quality assurance standards
Prioritising and managing multiple tasks concurrently against deadlines
Contributing to internal operational reports
To succeed in this role you will be full of energy and enthusiasm with plenty of ideas; we need someone with a genuine passion for what they do. You are already working in a digital production environment so have a good understanding of web or software development.
You have a level head, exceptional attention to detail and the ability to keep several plates spinning. As part of a small team you’ll have a pragmatic approach to your work. You’ll need to thrive on variety and be comfortable switching between tasks and projects.
You’ll also need excellent prioritisation and decision making skills. As you’ll be liaising directly with clients you’ll need the ability to communicate in a friendly and professional manner and be focused on providing excellent customer service.
You’ll be expected to hit the ground running but you’ll have lots of support; we’re a friendly team and there’ll always be someone to ask.
Excellent problem solving skills with the ability to quickly understand and diagnose issues
Exceptional time management with the ability to prioritise and manage multiple tasks concurrently against deadlines
Obsessively process driven (you're that person who makes a spreadsheet for their holiday)
A great communicator, both verbally and in writing
A great eye for design - you don’t need to be a designer but you’ll know when something doesn’t line up or the wrong font has been used.
Proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite: Illustrator, Photoshop & InDesign is desired but not essential.
Knowledge of print production processes would be useful.
At least 2 year’s experience in a digital production environment.
