Job Description

Prepare for take-off!

Are you obsessed with organisation and delighted by detail?

We’re on the hunt for a Project Manager with energy, enthusiasm and an eagerness to grow at Alive. The position is a fixed-term contract to cover maternity leave. You’ll have an insatiable desire to create great work with great people and share our commitment to delivering corking creative communications. And you’ll get to learn and develop alongside Alive’s experienced team of project and comms specialists.

Are you ready for lift-off?

Taking flight

  • You’ll be passionate about the process and dizzy about delivery, with a warm heart and a can-do attitude.
  • You’ll be a supportive guide for us and many of our clients, cheerily helping them navigate their way through their project needs and building existing positive and lasting relationships.
  • You’ll help support projects, from the germ of an idea to delivering a range of exciting programmes and campaigns.
  • You will be the all-important glue between the Alive team, suppliers and clients – a people person with punch and panache.
  • Whether it’s planning a social media campaign, supporting a new website build or sourcing giant inflatable ducks (really), you’ll always be ready to step forward with a savvy solution.

Jump on-board

You’ll work with our dazzling project managers and help improve the experience for our team, clients and suppliers through:

  • Relationship building and regular liaison with clients and suppliers, including copywriters, printers, photographers, camera operators and other partners
  • Estimating and managing client budgets, producing and implementing project schedules and status reports
  • Checking and proofreading to ensure we deliver the highest standard of work
  • Helping to manage schedules and traffic within the design studio
  • Contribute to improving project management processes
  • Post-project follow up

What’s in your locker?

As well as your immaculate organisational skills, you’ll also be brimming with these vital personality traits:

  • A friendly and approachable nature
  • A natural curiosity and a desire to always know more
  • An ability to develop and maintain relationships that inspire trust and respect
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal
  • A polite, friendly and diplomatic manner (firm but fair), with good negotiation skills
  • The confidence and capability to contribute towards original and imaginative ideas
  • The ability to prioritise and manage several tasks at once
  • Super-organised, hard-working and calm in the busy buzz of agency life
  • An eagle eye for detail
  • A proactive self-starter who can use their initiative

…but most of all a great team player with a wicked sense of humour!
