They are collaborative, inventive, innovative, and entrepreneurial.

If you love to make, experiment, and share ideas around “What if…?”, we really want to meet you.

  • You will provide approved project documentation (CPA’s and budgets/estimates) to Account Management and own these through the process internally and on larger scopes of work, present to client directly.

  • On certain briefs (execution/non-strategic/direct to department), you will take briefs directly and manage the process with the client from brief to final delivery/supply. 

  • You will oversee the internal department briefings ensuring the process is followed, the correct project documentation is used at all times and that necessary departments are at briefings and sign off when required.

  • You will own the change request process, documenting and flagging changes to the account team and ensuring changes are billed accordingly or recorded for internal evaluation purposes.

  • Working with the RM team, you will be aware of billing milestones and ensure reconciliations are completed to ensure prompt billing.

  • You will coordinate internal and client Pre Production meetings, ensuring all stakeholders are prepared and documentation is distributed and updated pre and post-meeting.

  • You will track projects through the process and agreed evaluation criteria and report on the internal process at project evaluation/wash upstage( via the metrics supplied) to inform the Project Director/Ops Director on continuous improvements.

  • You will produce simple digital projects from brief to final delivery. 

  • You will take responsibility for managing an account executive and ensuring that they develop and grow into their role and guarantee their work meets the agency standard.
