Project Manager

Want to be part of the most dynamic media company in the UK?  Are you looking to join a team where you can express yourself in an environment where change and growth are celebrated?  If your answer is yes - then look no further.

At Dennis, we’re dedicated to creating brands that people want to work on and a culture that people want to work in and we want you to be part of the next success everyone’s talking about.

We are now looking for a talented and commercially savvy Project Manager to work across our portfolio.

What will you be doing?

  • Working within the Project Management team, you will be the main point of contact for external clients and internal teams through the project lifecycle, working closely with external clients and agencies, and internal sales, editorial, design, campaign management and more.
  • From kick-off meetings to final delivery, you will plan, communicate and troubleshoot at all stages of the project life-cycle, reporting internally and externally, ensuring a structured, coordinated approach. Responsibilities include understanding and delivering client briefs, estimating production costs and keeping to budget, planning and leading client meetings and more.
  • The commercial projects you will manage could range from print advertorials to website builds, cross platform campaigns, creation of rich media formats, bespoke content creation (articles, video), social media, media-first promotional formats, standard display adverts, HTML emails, webinars, mock ups and more.
  • You will also be looking after non commercial jobs such as media packs, pitch presentations, media sheets, award & event graphics and in house marketing material.
  • You will act as an ambassador and representative for Dennis to external clients/agencies.
  • This is a very hands-on role and although you will have support from the PM team, as well as input from sales, editorial, design, tech and product managers, you will be responsible for managing clients and their projects independently, successfully and profitably.

Who are we looking for?

  • You will be happy to manage print advertorials as well as digital ad builds.
  • You will have experience working with agency/clients.
  • You will be a self-starter with a positive, ʻcan-doʼ attitude.
  • You will be capable of winning the respect and trust of clients, creative and technical teams as well as internal sales, editorial, Ad Ops, campaign managers and product managers
  • You will use your existing project management experience and initiative to know when to make decisions and when to defer to stakeholders.
  • You will have a good understanding of the digital development process including communication strategy, creative and technical
  • You will have knowledge in scrum, agile, waterfall and other project management methodologies as well as digital display advertising and content led creative solutions
  • You'll have knowledge in Google Apps, Google Analytics, Ad trafficking (preferably DFP), CRM (preferably Salesforce) and Web trends, eg HTML5 and responsive design/mobile web
  • You will ideally have some experience with CMS systems (preferably Drupal), SEO, Social media, (especially YouTube and Twitter) and email marketing and viral campaigns

Why Us?

  • We’re award winning. You will be working across award-winning brands and in award-winning teams and joining a culture where innovation and success are encouraged.
  • Our Commitment. We’re very proud to work for the benefit of The Heart of England Forest; an exciting and ambitious charity aiming to plant and preserve the largest native broadleaf forest in England. Founded by our late chairman, Felix Dennis, every employee gets the chance to plant a tree in their name so you can feel part of our vision.
  • We’re always thinking of you. You’ll have access to plenty of great benefits such as 28 days holiday, a contributory pension scheme and discounted gym membership. There are also yoga and boot camp classes to get involved in if the gym membership is not enough.
  • We recognise hard work. Have you always dreamed of taking time out of work to travel the world? You’ll be given the opportunity to take a 6 week paid sabbatical after five years service. And if you’re lucky enough to win our Employee of the Year Award you’ll be sent on a holiday of a lifetime to the island of Mustique in the Caribbean.
  • We know how to have fun. Whether it's swatting up for one of our pub quizzes, creating a costume for our famous fancy dress parties or taking part in a fitness challenge as part of our annual charity day - we can guarantee you will share the enjoyment of life at Dennis.

Dennis does not discriminate. We’re just interested in your skills, your talent and your potential. So if you feel like this role is for you, please press apply now.
