We're looking for a talented Project Manager to be responsible for the project management of commercial and non-commercial projects across Dennis’ portfolio.
Working within the Project Management team acting as the main point of contact for external clients and internal teams through the project life-cycle, working closely with external clients and agencies, and internal sales, editorial, design, event management, campaign management and more.
From kick-off meetings to final delivery, you will plan, manage budgets, communicate and troubleshoot at all stages of the project, reporting internally and externally, ensuring a structured, coordinated approach.
The commercial projects range from print advertorials to website builds, cross platform campaigns, creation of rich media formats, bespoke content creation (articles, video), social media, media-first promotional formats, standard display adverts, HTML emails, webinars, mock ups and more.
You will also be looking after non-commercial jobs such as media packs, pitch presentations, media sheets, award & event graphics and in house marketing material.
This is a very hands-on role and although you will have support from the PM team, as well as input from sales, editorial, design, tech and product managers, you will be responsible for managing clients and their projects independently, successfully and profitably.
We'll need you to represent Dennis to external clients/agencies. You'll also work closely with in-house Product Managers, and communicate design briefs directly to our design and development teams.
We want you to have an excellent understanding of the life-cycle of a project including communication strategy, creative and technical. Combining existing project management experience and your own innate initiative, you'll always know when to make decisions and when to defer to stakeholders.
Confident, assured and outgoing, you'll win the respect and trust of everyone around you. Working quickly and accurately you will be able to communicate a concept or idea clearly and succinctly. You will be a self-starter with a positive, ʻcan-doʼ attitude. Of course, spectacular organisation skills are a must.
You'll have strong knowledge in content led creative solutions print advertorials best practice as well as the client, agency and publisher ecosystem. You may also have some knowledge in scrum, agile, waterfall and other project management methodologies however, this is not essential. Ideally you will be well versed in Google Apps & Analytics.
