What you'll be doing

Reporting directly to our Project Management Team Lead, you’ll help to plan, execute and deliver complex technical projects, on time, in budget, and over and above client expectations.

You’ll liaise with client contacts to define project objectives, co-ordinate our creative and digital teams, manage external parties, and ensure that digital deliverables are functioning to their specifications.

It’s often fast-paced with super-tight deadlines, but you’ll have the chance to work with a lovely bunch of people, the latest technologies and some amazing B2B brands.

Below are just some of the tasks your typical day will be filled with:

• Truly understanding your clients’ aims, business and market, to help deliver creative but commercial solutions.

• Creating estimates based on requirements and managing all financial aspects of the project including invoicing.

• Producing user-friendly wireframes with our interactive designers.

• Working with account handlers and clients to define project requirements, schedules and budget.

• Creating project plans, revising when appropriate to meet changing needs and requirements.

• Managing the day-to-day operational aspects of a project, ensuring all stakeholders understand their tasks, and delivery is on time and in budget.

• Following quality assurance procedures and identifying and addressing any risks to projects.

• Ensuring documentation is current/complete and stored appropriately.

• Managing the content migration process.

• Co-ordinating the testing plan/QA/user acceptance procedure.

• Ensuring confidentiality when dealing with client and company information.

• Facilitating regular status meetings with the project teams and/or clients.

• Effectively communicating relevant project information to superiors.

• Escalating any project-related issues and opportunities to the Project Management Team Lead or Programme Director in a timely fashion.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
