Job Description

Project /Process Manager


Salary circa £40-45k


A brand is one of the most essential parts of any business. Brand consistency is why the Nike swoosh makes you feel inspired, and a yellow 'M' makes you hungry, so it’s vital to ensure that a brand is always represented correctly. This is where Brand Asset Management really comes into play.

Our client is a fantastic startup in Belfast that has created a platform to bring all of your brand guidelines, libraries and projects together in a real-time collaborative hub that evolves with your brand, giving easy access to creatives and brand partners. Their customers include top brands like Disney, Playstation and Instagram.

We are now looking to hire a Project/Process Manager to join their growing team.

  • Responsible for project managing ongoing development of new features, working closely with the CEO and in-house development team
  • Planning and preparation of project documentation to include project definition, project plans, deliverables, milestones, budget control and governance
  • Work with different teams to coordinate activities across different projects to continuously improve and adapt processes to enhance agility and delivery
  • Proactively monitor progress to ensure milestones are met across the various projects within the department
  • Resolve issues, interfaces and dependencies between projects, including allocation of common resources
  • Initiate extra activities and manage interventions wherever gaps in the projects or issues are identified
  • Ensure visions are aligned, communicating directly with all levels of the business and directly with customers, partners and suppliers when required
  • Manage progress reporting on behalf of all stakeholders
  • Lead Project kick off sessions and lessons learned
  • Be responsible for delivery of projects on time, by managing scope and removing blockers
  • In the first 3 months you will also be tasked with undertaking a thorough review of internal processes and making recommendations for improvements or adaptations to achieve a more streamlined approach.

What are we looking for?

  • Must have previous experience of working within a software delivery environment on customer focused projects within a SaaS environment
  • Able to motivate and hold others accountable for delivery
  • Excellent organisational skills
  • Proven experience of delivering on time and on cost
  • Advanced administration skills, in particular using G-Suite, MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Asana or similar project tools
  • Ability to work effectively as part of a team with shared objectives and on own initiative
  • 3+ years Project Management experience
  • Business analyst experience and a knowledge of Agile will be an advantage as would experience in the creative industry, or experience developing software with real-time collaboration features
  • Outstanding communication and stakeholder management skills
  • A proven track record of leading fast paced, time limited but complex projects to successful outcomes
