Mid-Weight
Project
Manager


Hello, we’re Impero.

We’re an independent, award-winning, creative agency for impatient brands. Our sole purpose is to make tired consumer brands famous again, and we do it, because one day it’ll make us world famous.

We work with high profile, global brands such as, General Mills (Nature Valley, Fibre One & Betty Crocker, etc), Pernod Ricard (The Glenlivet, Havana Club & Chivas, etc), Ugg and Unicef.

Right now, there’s about 30 of us (not including the dogs) - but that number grows all the time because we’re still young, ambitious and pretty good at what we do. We’d love to meet people who want to be part of and help drive that growth.

The role:

As a Mid-weight Project Manager within the Delivery Team, you will be responsible for the day-to-day running of your projects. You need to be a fully integrated PM with experience in running full 360 campaigns. It is absolutely vital that you have experience working on a mix of social, shopper/on and off trade marketing projects under your belt.

You will support the Account Directors by managing key clients, mapping out brand growth plans, pushing the agency to produce great client work and ultimately, help bring your clients and their brands fame and glory.

This will include:

  • Confidently create project scoping documents, plus project planning and resource management

  • Ensure projects are delivered to scope, budget and to agreed time frames

  • Build strong relationships internally, earning 80% positive peer feedback during reviews
  • Deliver SOW documents of up to £100k within and ETA of 2 working days
The type of people we want to meet:

Above all, you'll embody our core values of being brutally honest, doggedly determined, always on point and audaciously ambitious.

You will have a hunger to build strong client relationships, deliver exceptional work for your clients and to be part of an amazing team. More so than this, you will have a willingness to learn things outside your wheelhouse and pick up skills quickly.
