About the Job

At MadeBrave, Project Managers are the backbone of our agency—methodical, organised, and resourceful. They're the problem solvers who keep our workloads in check and our projects on track.

Reporting to the Chief Operations Officer, you'll work closely with the wider Project Management team as well as Client Services and Traffic/Operations to deliver top-notch film productions, content productions, print productions, and PR experiential builds.

Your main role will be to ensure complete visibility of ongoing work, seamless cross-department coordination, staying mindful of our teams workload. You’ll proactively spot and tackle risks, consistently deliver projects on time, and handle client budgets through smart negotiations with third parties to maximise ROI for our clients.

Responsibilities

  • Managing end-to-end project timelines: Once signed off, you'll provide detailed schedules for internal planning and ensure all administrative tasks are completed before project kick-off.

  • Project administration: Document and manage changing variables with careful attention to detail, so accurate information is accessible in real-time.

  • Internal Stakeholder Management: Work with key stakeholders across our business to form the best project teams and keep everyone on-task and on-time.

  • Communications Management: Plan regular touchpoints for structured communications internally and provide status updates to client services before client meetings.

  • Budgetary Control: Ensure projects stay under budget and push back on out-of-scope requests that would exceed budgets.

  • Risk Management: Conduct risk assessments on all projects, plan strategies to mitigate issues, and communicate risks to relevant stakeholders.

  • Problem Solving & Prioritisation: Reassess changing and conflicting priorities as needed and quickly communicate any impacts to client services.

  • Third-party costs and supplier management: Support communications around third-party supplier requirements and facilitate when necessary.

  • Proactive Process Review: Champion learning, process improvement, and project management within the business by developing new approaches where needed and updating outdated processes.

What We're Looking For

  •  3-4 years in the advertising sector as a Production/Project Manager or as an Agency Producer.

  • Excellent knowledge of project management methodologies and tools (Streamtime, Synergist, Monday, etc.).

  • Good working knowledge of our core services, including film production, media planning, content production, digital and print production.
