  • Mitigating against risks and tracking issues, escalating concerns to client management colleagues and senior-level project management before they become critical
  • Maintaining robust project financial governance – ensuring that payment plans, billing, POs and client financial information are accurate and completed on time
  • Building strong team relationships within the PM team and across RY, ensuring all members of the project teams know their role and what is expected of them
  • Leading project-related meetings, including reviews, statuses and wash-ups
  • Producing regular reconciliations and status reports to the client
  • Ensuring timesheets and resourcing are accurate and actively managed, including resolving day-to-day issues
  • Previous project management experience, ideally gained within a creative or design agency

  • An exceptional eye for detail, proactively flagging mistakes or when work goes off-brief
  • Excellent written and verbal communication
  • An excellent listener and interpreter of what is being said in meetings
  • Some experience/knowledge of sustainability and digital will be beneficial
  • Bright, ambitious, and looking to progress in a fast-paced, challenging work environment
  • A good balance of IQ and EQ, someone who is believable and a ‘safe pair of hands’
