Self-starting, all-star freelance Project Manager at Don't Panic Partners in New York, United States

A huge opportunity for a self-starting, all-star freelance Project Manager.

Thanks to several major project wins, we’re looking for someone to become a key part of our NYC team. Someone to be our day-to-day representative, managing every aspect of delivery on a range of projects for a load of clients, from property to charities to hoteliers.

You’ll have a boutique branding and design agency background and believe in our brand story. After all, that’s part of the reason clients want to work with us.

And if you do brilliant work and fit with our culture, maybe you’ll even join us permanently…

In short, you will have these things:

· Minimum four years’ boutique agency experience

· Branding, design and property experience

· Strong client presentation skills

· Mid-level experience, but looking to climb

· Client facing experience

· Able to start ASAP

And the role will include these things:

· 6-month role (with potential to go perm)

· Annual salary up to $75K

· Hourly rate during freelance portion of assignment up to $75/h

In a little more detail, you’ll be doing these things:

You’ll be the main point of contact between the London creative team and your clients. You’ll ensure projects are delivered on time and within budget, keeping track of timings, milestones, budgets and resources across all your projects.

Working with internal team members to help define project scope, resource requirements and cost estimates for projects, you’ll produce relevant roadmaps, schedules, costings, and technical specifications. You’ll provide effective direction to ensure that clients, creatives and client-servicing team members are up to date on developments.

You will identify, communicate and escalate any issues like project delays and cost over-runs, and communicate with all stakeholders, managing the clients’ expectations and advising on actions. You’ll work with the wider client services team to define the scope of campaigns, and produce detailed plans encompassing project stages, delivery dates, budget and resource requirements and accurate statements of work.

But that’s all a piece of cake to you, right?

And you’ll have been there and done these:

Previous relevant agency experience in a similar role is a total must, and you’ll be well-verse in delivering branding, print and digital projects all the way from concept to completion.

Experience of developing marketing in the property sector would be excellent, although not essential. But you will be a confident self-starter with the ability to understand client’s business needs or requests very quickly.

It goes without saying that great people skills and the ability to build relationships easily is vital, in order to act as the frontline interface for the client, stakeholders and agency. Strong organisational and prioritisation skills to manage several simultaneous projects. Excellent written, verbal & numerical skills. Completer finisher who takes ownership and makes delivery happen.

Now that’s enough about you. Here’s a little about us, Don’t Panic Partners
