I’m working with a global media agency who have a couple of opportunities for a Project Manager, with a strong leaning into Digital/Social to manage on one (or more) of their main accounts. This is an incredible opportunity to be part of an agile, dynamic team helping create a wider brand community integrating work across multi-channel but having particular focus on Social (organic and paid).
