Project Management within the Media Team takes projects from planning to delivery - on time, on budget, and on brief. Project Management is everyone’s go to place for the project. Clients and internal team members rely on you for everything they need to know about a project: what to expect, what to do next, and where they need to be.
The role will support Senior SEO Managers and SEO Directors with the review and assessment of performance and will need a strong understanding of the principles of digital media and the common measurement approaches.
The Senior Project Manager is also expected to lead various weekly client status calls, maintaining a clear status sheet, trello board or similar and ensure tasks are completed on time and to budget. They will contribute to client meetings and QBRs/SteerCos – providing rationale for recommendations and insights into performance.
The account is varied and the ideal candidate will need to have experience within a Digital Media environment. Experience project managing across Search, SEO, Strategy or other Digital Media Channels as well as working with other departments such as Creative or Data is highly desirable.
