Major Players are working with an amazing global marketing agency who focus on insights, creativity and technology that motive people to take meaningful action. They are looking for a Project Director with agency experience in big brands and events who will play a pivotal role in their Programme Management team based in Leeds.

The Role / Company

This agency work through-the-line with some of the best-known brands in every major sector.

The agency's team of Project Managers are the go-to contact for clients and their in-house teams.

They share the learnings and best practice.

Key to this role is building strong relationships with senior stakeholders and leading projects across all channels to the highest of standards (your projects will be some of the more complex and high-profile in the business). You'll collaborate with our specialist areas to deliver effective, high quality, strategic and creative solutions which always exceed our client's expectations.

Skills & Experience

  • You'll have successfully forged a career within a leading agency or consultancy.
  • You have a background in communications and/or marketing projects and integrated campaigns, as well as experience delivering these kinds of projects.

  • You have excellent commercial acumen, know what's going on throughout the industry, what the competition are doing and what good looks like.
  • You are great at building presentations and have the ability to write an amazing brief.
  • You are comfortable working to margin targets and used to managing projects of a value of £100,000 and over.
  • You are a self-motivated team player, with a passionate approach to work and the drive to take on and learn new things in a constantly evolving world.
