The Project Simply team is growing and we are looking for a Digital Project Manager! 

(psssst…if this sounds like someone you know please share – we are offering £1000 to anyone who introduces the right person, but no recruiters please)

We are a small but fast growing team, producing our own IP and working closely with our clients in the festival, music and lifestyle sectors and we need a digital producer/PM to help us deliver websites, apps and online experiences.

We only working with clients we like, really look after our people, and understand the benefits of being an independent owner-run creative business. We have plans to open our own ventures arm within 3 years to develop and run our own commercial ideas and work on passion projects for charities and worthwhile causes.

What we are looking for

Not just another number…but a new member of the Project Simply family.

If you feel a bit stifled by larger agency mentality, and want to feel part of the work you deliver through shaping client relationships and projects – then we’d love to meet you!

We are looking for an organisational superhero with a healthy sprinkle of inner-geek, who likes the idea of working directly with clients in the music and leisure sector and will drive our digital projects forward.

We are looking for an experienced, confident Digital Project Manager to deliver great digital work – efficiently.

You’ll provide structure, control and a cool focus and will be comfortable working within a small team across a range of platforms – so you’ll need to be able to flex, and embrace unknowns!

You will work on proposals, quoting and functional scope development, establish realistic concepts and be the first point of contact for our clients.

We would expect you to produce clear reports identifying WIP, project basics, profitability and time allocation, and plan clear timelines and milestones for the team on each project.

You may have a background in development and design, and understand the nuances of bleeding edge digital design creation.

Above all you must be good fun, love what you do and be able to get the best out of a team.
