We are always looking to hire
talented people who are looking for a way out of the traditional, short-termist
approach of chewing up audiences, channels and staff for a quick sale at the
expense of long-term connections, and want to thrive in an environment where they
are empowered and supported in delivering work of value.
We are a motley crew of hybrids from
all backgrounds, we are thinkers and do-ers. Working in whatever channel makes
sense for the task at hand. We specialise in fuelling conversations, igniting opinions
and sparking reactions, and we‘re lucky enough to work with world leading
clients like Nestle, Contiki, Nespresso, Macquarie University, Westpac and
We’re looking for a Project Management
Lead to lead our Project
Management team (as the name suggests). This team is responsible for partner
relationships (Clients and Suppliers) and project delivery (on time and on
budget), and so you will need to excel in both. This role would suit an Account Director with 7+ years’ experience in similar roles.
ABOUT THE ROLE
This is a truly hybrid role: part client
service, part project management, part executive producer. The role sits on our
senior leadership team alongside the Creative lead and Strategy Lead, and
reports to the Group head of Creative Strategy.
Around the Team
You will lead a team of young, hungry and talented project managers from
all walks of life. They will look to you to set an example of the standards
required for the role, and provide guidance on how to build strong client
partner relationships, diligently manage timelines and budgets, and bring in
the most relevant creative and production partners, at the right time to ensure
positive outcomes for our Clients’ organisations, and in turn our own business.
Relationships are key to the success
of the Project Management team, with partners and colleagues alike. You will be
the key contact for our most senior Client partners. You need to be able to foster
and develop these relationships to ensure we operate with a high level of
trust, clear communication and good chemistry. You can present with authority
and can use your knowledge of the Client and strong relationships to sell great
ideas and secure organic new business opportunities. You will develop a
knowledge of potential creative, production and technical partners and can be
called to bring in the brains needed to get any job done. You will build
empowering relationships with your team and across The Conscience Organisation,
by enabling everyone in the building to achieve their personal objectives, as
much as we enable you to achieve yours.
Around The Work
You have a key understanding of the
business priorities for our business, and our partners’ businesses. You will
assign project managers to project teams, and lead some project teams yourself.
You will be highly familiar with our processes, and adept at deploying them.
You will manage timelines and budgets to ensure projects are delivered as
expected, and review your team to ensure they are doing the same. You will
identify when third-party partners need to be engaged to provide strategic,
creative, production or technical support, and engage them effectively. You
will lead the assessment and optimisation of our working processes, working
closely with the Group Head of Creative Strategy.
