What will you do?
At MACS, Creative Project Manager means being able to:
Lead projects. You’ll be working on projects that involve designers, copywriters, motion designers, videographers and experienced marketing professionals. It’ll be your job to successfully translate project objectives into high-quality creative work while keeping the budget within the agreed ranges.
Build briefs, budgets, proposals and trackers. We’ll look to you to be meticulous about ensuring creation and completion of all documentation associated with a project, right from producing the minutes from the first call to closing the book on a project.
Pick up and master new tools. We use tools like G-Suite, Teamwork, Slack and more. We’ll look to you to demonstrate best practice use of these tools, ensure the right tools are used for the right purpose and be willing to experiment and investigate new tools as they come onto the market.
Manage multiple projects at once. You’ll be responsible for managing a variety of different types of projects (print and digital assets, videos/animations presentations, KV, VI, content, etc.) and you’ll need to know how to prioritize based on the needs of your stakeholders.
Know the difference between project management and project coordination. We’re not looking for people to copy and paste requests without checking if they’re complete or not – we’re looking for people who can get under the skin of a topic, work out what’s required and make sure the goods are delivered.
Be a trusted advisor to our internal stakeholders. Many of our stakeholders are not marketing professionals – it’ll be up to you to advise them on how to achieve their objectives and translate their expert business insight into compelling creative work.
Liaise with external suppliers. Sometimes, the assets that we create need to be printed and shipped. In this role, we will rely on your expertise for guidance on the tactics and vendors to use, and for you to liaise with all parties until the assets reach their destination.
- Working directly with our clients to understand their requirements, define assets and agree on delivery dates
- Plan delivery through timely resource booking and clear project plan
- Take part in the scoping call, coordinate proposal writing process & creation of competetive estimates
- Communicate the project parameters in a clear and effective manner, facilitate the project team meetings and ensure everybody has a clear sense of next steps
- Have an understanding of MACS operational system and use the project management tools for project set-up, management, budget tracking and closure to ensure the effective management of the project
- Act as the main point of contact for all project-related tasks for both the client and internally, set and manage expectations on an ongoing basis, address and mitigate unexpected issues
- Evaluate the creative work and its alignment to brief
- Build strong relationships both with our stakeholders and internally, establish the role of a strong and trusted advisor
