Project Director

Are you our newest Project Director? Equally at home being the lead adviser in the development of a brand project as you are with projects of scale in the digital world, you are international of outlook, experience and world view and happy to apply your learning locally. A natural leader with the human touch, a love of creativity and innovation, an eye for detail and a drive for change. A skillful manager of people, process, budgets and output, you will make a real impact on our clients and our agency.

Who are we?

At AV Browne the work we produce is very important. If we didn’t produce beautiful, engaging, challenging, innovative, effective work for clients of all shapes, sizes, markets and industries, what would be the point?

So, everyone who works here wants to be the best. But we don’t just mean the best strategist, the best UX designer or the best video editor.

INSIDE

We want the best team-mate, the best at bringing people together, the best at nurturing, inspiring and collaborating, the best at motivating and at commiserating. We need everyone in the team to be fully accountable, responsible and help their colleagues when they need it (and without it being asked of them each time).

OUTSIDE

But we believe your family, your friends, your whole life outside work is every bit as important as your life inside work, and if we’ve learned anything this year is that the two are often entwined.  And so they should be.

We are on a pathway of progressive change in our agency; one that values people, profit and planet equally. We are an Equal Opportunity employer with salary and associated benefits commensurate with experience and benchmarked against industry standards.

We operate a flexible working policy within a four-day week environment.


Who are you?

You are an experienced Project Management professional with the accreditations and experience to match. You have digital project management under your belt, but more than that you have an interest in, and understanding of, brand communications – a hybrid professional that loves the learning and flexibility that brings.

Ideally you have international marketing or commercial experience in the B2B or G2B sectors and understand how to establish benchmarks of best practice and consistently deliver on them.

You enjoy working in a fast-paced environment, motivating a team and building client relationships. You are also someone that is looking for a better way to work.

An experienced, accredited project management specialist, who has the planning, client servicing, digital and technical knowledge to manage projects of scale and complexity to international standards, through the agency.

Digital through and through and you are always seeking out newness, the next big thing. As a leader internally you are more than the projects you output, you are a key contributor to framing a digital way of working and thinking working with other senior staff to create and build the team, processes and specialisms required to deliver this vision.

You are a marketeer with a bigger picture point of view, a consultant, advisor, voice of authority that our clients trust to lead them, challenge them and deliver effective business solutions for them, whilst ensuring projects are managed using our approved processes and procedures, on time and on budget.

Adept at using qualitative research, trends, market data and your own learned knowledge you can interrogate, write and shape briefs which enable the strategic, brand, creative and digital teams to produce innovative, engaging and effective brand solutions and campaigns.

Thoroughly comfortable and professional in championing your Clients’ requirements, you are a skilled and engaging communicator, undaunted by presenting at the highest level.
