Salary – up to £24,000 depending on experience

We’re looking for an experienced Project Manager to manage digital, design and copywriting projects for our clients. The role will lead on the planning, implementation and day-to-day operational aspects of projects.

Ideally, you’ll have experience working in a similar role at a creative agency. You’ll join a friendly, talented team, have the opportunity to work with a diverse portfolio of clients, and possess the skills required to proactively take our digital, design and copywriting services to another level. This is a fantastic opportunity to work with an established creative business with a great reputation.

Here, you’ll find an informal culture with bags of character. The team is extremely friendly, and this attitude is evident throughout the company.

Key functions of the role:

  • Lead on the planning, implementation and day-to-day operational aspects of projects.
  • Be responsible for the planning and scheduling of project timelines, in coordination with the wider studio schedule.
  • Constantly review and monitor project budgets and timescales, alerting the wider project team to any issues and adapting the process accordingly.
  • Regularly liaise with the Account Management team to ensure two-way communication on projects and clients is in place.
  • Maintain strong client communications and support the Account Manager with overall client liaison.   
  • Manage all project administration, including client paperwork, internal system setup (such as job and task setup), and the raising of purchase orders within the CRM system.
  • Create and sign off invoices.
  • Support the Account Manager with creating customer quotes.
  • Track and report on project performance.
  • Attend client meetings as required.
  • Identify and manage risks to ensure the project is delivered on time and within budget.
  • Regularly liaise with external stakeholders, such as print companies.
  • Have a clear understanding of Nixon processes and pricing.
  • Hold post-project review meetings in order to identify areas of future improvement.
  • Ensure all project documentation is complete, current and appropriately stored.
  • Working with all internal teams to ensure efficient operations.
  • Brief and liaise with the internal team, providing client feedback and keeping the team motivated and aware of all project elements.
  • Work closely with the Account Management team to ensure client projects are delivered on time and within budget.
  • Liaise with the Studio & Finance Coordinator to ensure invoicing is correct.
  • Answer the main Nixon phone during working hours (a mobile phone will be supplied for this for when working remotely, if desired).
  • Ensure all projects respond to the client's brief through careful review of team's work, including proofing and checking of all outputs.
  • Able to prioritise multiple projects and deadlines, whilst maintaining a calm attitude.

Why you’ll love it at Nixon:

  • We're an Employee Ownership Trust, meaning the company is 100% employee owned. Bonuses may be allocated on a yearly basis, depending on the business’s success, and shared equally between all team members.
  • Flexible working, based partly from home (remotely) and partly in Hayle, or fully office-based if preferred.
  • Beautiful converted-warehouse studio in Hayle, a stone’s throw from the beach.
  • Flexible 24 days’ holiday per year, plus bank holidays.
  • Early 4pm finish on a Friday (when your workload allows).
  • Studio closure over Christmas.
  • Amazing team of 12 designers, developers, copywriters, project managers and account managers.
  • Knowledge sharing encouraged with regular workshops, talks and sharing lunches.
  • A relaxed working environment.
  • Strong work/life balance ethos.
