Resource & Project Manager

Hello, we’re Impero.

We’re an independent, award-winning, design focused creative agency.

We work with high profile, global brands such as, The Glenlivet, Havana Club & Chivas, Corona, Budweiser, Mikes Seltzer, Nature Valley, Ugg, Unicef, Danone, and a bunch of others.

We’re pretty good at what we do. In 2018 we won five Agency of The Year(s) including The Drum DADI Agency of the Year. We were also shortlisted as Campaign Independent Agency of the Year. And, this year made it onto the Campaign Mag 100 best places to work.

Next we have our sights set on a D&AD and/or Cannes Lion this year.

There are about 35 of us (not including the dogs) — but that number grows all the time because we’re still young, ambitious, and do great work.

We’re also 70% female with a 50/50 gender split on the senior team. We proudly have

100% pay parity and it kind of annoys us that we even have to mention that as something that’s unique within this industry.

We gladly do things differently. We‘re super ambitious, brutally honest, and always deliver.

We don’t really like the ‘Old Guard’ of advertising. Working here is a hell of a lot of fun.

This is a growing agency, we’re looking for a Senior Designer who wants to be part of and help drive that growth.

You will be responsible for the day-to-day traffic and resource management of the agency’s workflow whilst remaining responsible for the status of your core projects.

You will support the Operations Manager with all resourcing duties. This includes hosting resource meetings across the business, headhunting freelancers, and casting our internal team.

You will support your client team by managing key clients, assisting with scoping, and, reporting on project burn, whilst pushing the agency to produce great client work and ultimately, help bring your clients and their brand’s fame and glory.
