Project Manager

Full Time

We’re searching for a talented client facing Project Manager for our Brighton based production agency producing high quality events across both the UK and Europe. Whilst we’re based in Brighton you don’t need to be, although we’d love to see you once a week this role will largely be a remote one when you’re not at a client event or site.

This isn’t a 9-5 role, but nor are our clients, we sometimes work unsociable hours to offer the very best to our clients, but the rewards and opportunities to work alongside some of the best lifestyle brands, agencies and promoters far outweigh this.

A little bit about us…we deliver technical and site production for high profile events in the UK and Europe. We work with brands, agencies and multiple lifestyle clients engaging in actions sports, pop up venues, campaign activations, festivals, live music events and installations. The last year alone has seen us deliver over 50 events, travelling to Spain, France, Portugal, Germany and Scandinavia in the process as well as many at home in the UK.

  • Reporting to the production director, you’ll work alongside our small team handling the day to day project management and delivery of client events from concept to through live phases to post event analysis

  • You’ll manage coordination of third-party suppliers and freelancers to create the team to deliver the event
  • You’ll manage all changes to the event or production scope, layout plans, project schedule and budget and communicate back to all stakeholders
  • You’ll be responsible for on-site management of event build / live / strike and site infrastructure delivery and removal

Who you are;

You aren’t daunted by managing and running multiple projects with lots of stakeholders and can anticipate the needs of clients and projects.

You approach new projects and issues with a level head and infinite patience and have a passion for client facing work and building relationships quickly and easily and are a real team player. You also have a full UK driving licence.

You already have;
