This role will suit a recent graduate in a discipline of digital media who can demonstrate experience managing or assisting with the management of complex projects as part of your university course or extra-curricular activities.Being the most organised person in the room and being able to communicate and track the work of others is absolutely key. Attention to detail and processes is really important in this role.Given the nature of our business it is absolutely essential that you know your way around a fair number of digital devices and platforms as an avid user, and would be great if you had some technical knowledge of these platforms (but don’t worry – we’re not expecting you to code!)We’d particularly love to hear from graduates who might have covered PM modules in their University course including generating user stories and have a base knowledge of formal project management methodologies. Also, as a large part of our work is around UX and design a fair idea of what makes intuitive and high-quality design would also really help (although you’ll be working with designers and UI experts to execute designs).
We’d like you to produce project schedules, Gannt charts and budgets so we’d expect you to have solid working knowledge of all Microsoft Office applications, especially Excel. Working with or knowledge of project management tools like Basecamp, Teamwork and Pivotal Tracker would be a bonus.
Finally we only like to work with people that are friendly, approachable and have a can-do attitude. You need to enjoy being part of a team to succeed, thrive on the ‘all hands on deck’ mentality of a start-up, and have a genuine desire to learn. This job is hard work – but you’ll be working with huge career defining brands from day 1.
