Description

THE ROLE
We Are looking for a Senior Project Manager to join a well established team to work on an exciting roster of iconic global brands.
Who We Are
We Are Social is a global socially-led creative agency with unrivalled social media expertise. With 1,300 people in 19 offices spanning four continents, we deliver a global perspective to our clients in a time when social media is shaping culture.
We’re proud to be a multi award-winning agency, with Cannes Lions, One Show, Webby and Shorty Awards, to name but a few. Our most recent work has seen us help Pepsi, Meta and Adidas deliver some of their biggest and most innovative campaigns to date, from breaking into the metaverse to smashing records on TikTok.
As well as creating for clients, we help educate the wider industry. Our Instagram publication The Feed tracks culture at the speed of social. 6,500 people registered or tuned into our events last year, and our reports garnered more than 20 million views.
The Opportunity
Are you a natural communicator, friendly and approachable with good attention to detail and accuracy in all communication?
Want to create award-winning work for some of the most iconic global brands?
Do you have proven experience in delivering multi-million £ campaigns, working as part of a cross-agency team?
We Are looking for a Senior Project Manager to join a well established team to work on an exciting roster of iconic global brands. You will have extensive experience in how social content is developed and produced, and how to successfully scope and plan a variety of projects, and deliver successfully to those plans. You will have proven experience in managing social production, as a large amount of the social content we produce is video content. We have an in-house Production department who take care of the big shoots for us, but smaller content pieces, e.g. TikTok assets are being produced by our creative departments, and we need our PMs to help plan, manage budgets, and ensure we deliver great quality work, whilst meeting deadlines.
Requirements
What You’ll Have Delivered Elsewhere
  • Led on timing plans, and budgets ensuring that you have delivered within the set time and agreed budgets.
  • Created and executed SoWs/delivery plans ensuring 100% clarity and understanding among stakeholders.
  • Lead projects from a delivery perspective from client brief to completion with minimal to no errors or delays.
  • Experience with creative production for social media campaigns, including how the social assets are produced and how to help the creative teams do this efficiently and deliver the work ‘right the first time’.
  • Established client relationships, and used to being the main contact for the client on live projects, managing expectations and communications.
  • Confident managing a variety of workstreams intended for social platforms, incl. TikTok content, Insta/X/Snap work and campaign work. Solid understanding of what paid vs organic means from a production perspective, and what constitutes clever innovation work in the social space. Finally, experience of scoping, planning and executing influencer projects is key for this role.
What Else Are We Looking For?
  • Strong financial focus with an understanding of ensuring we are delivering within budget and not over-delivering in comparison to the agreed scope of work. This includes weekly reconciliations and financial reporting to the Project Director.
  • Video production experience, for small to medium-sized shoots, including pre-production, production and relevant documentation.
  • Proactive and good at foreseeing problems, and can articulate these to the relevant people when required.
  • Good with systems and resource booking/finance tools – our agency uses a selection of tools and as part of the PM team, you will be expected to learn how to use them well and stay on top of comms, bookings and planning via such tools daily.
