The Digital Project Manager places themselves at the heart of our ongoing client partnerships, playing the integral role of project coordination and management within retained Professional Services projects.

Each of our customers are breaking new ground and so require leadership, partnership and proactivity, particularly when investing in additional layers to their service. The primary objective for the wider Professional Services team therefore is to bridge the gap between our platform functionality and our customer’s operational capabilities and available data, thus driving platform adoption. You will play a key part in this by leading project governance and assuming the role of project management lead in every retainer. Our projects last for 12 months so will require consistency in governance across the term.

As project lead, the DPM’s role is to govern the delivery of digital services across the Professional Services (ProServ) division, drawing ties between the Strategic, Production Services and Implementation teams contributing to multiple paid ProServ retainers. The DPM is the main interface between clients and internal teams for all paid ProServ projects involving Strategic and Production services (these retainers can include a mixture of Strategic Consultancy services and Production services across the web, social, mobile and email channels).

  • You are expected to work alongside ProServ leads to take an active role in shaping and influencing the overall governance structure of ProServ retainers as the department continues to grow. Your learnings will be key to optimizing existing processes and governance methods. This will include improving ways of aligning with internal and external teams, managing escalations, mitigating risk and minimising the risk of churn in year 2.
