Hello all! I’m Matt – our resident Project & Systems Manager. I’m heading off traveling in July (yay) and have been fortunate enough to secure a 7 month sabbatical allowing me to return to my job in February next year. Thank you team!
As such, this has created an opening here at NixonMcInnes for someone to cover my role while I’m away. It’s an amazing opportunity to work with the loveliest people I know.
We’ve had some fantastic candidates so far and the window for applying is only open until the end of this week.
We’re looking for someone who knows their PM onions inside out, can work as part of a team here, know when to prod (and when not to) and is keen to work in a democratic culture like ours.
The role is varied – and includes managing pitches, projects and internal initiatives from inception to delivery, keeping a sharp eye on budget, deliverables and quality. Alongside the PM stuff, the role involves working with the entire team, owning company wide resourcing to ensure that the company continues to run as smoothly and efficiently as possible by ensuring the right work gets to the right people at the right time.
The critical stuff we need is:
_Brilliant people skills are essential – you’ll be working with everyone in the business
_At least 5 years experience managing digital projects and programs
_Ability to manage multiple projects in one go
_Solid client handling skills – knowing when to be firm and when to be soft
_Risk identification and mitigation
_The usual office skills – spreadsheets a must
_Sound knowledge of the social web
_Good web skills – you’ll be using a number of online systems
We’d love to hear from you if this is something that interests you – you can read more about the role and apply via Wired Sussex.
