Key Responsibilities:

  • Form and lead project teams

THE CANDIDATE
You’ll be an experienced Producer/Programme Manager with experience within live events, and exposure to  broader communicatoins/training/culture change projects, utilising a varied range of media for delivery.  You’ll have extensive experience of managing production and creative teams, and managing complex projects from initial brief through to delivery and reconciliation.  You’d be joining a collaborative and pro-active culture, where entrepreneurial drive and a quizzical mind are encouraged – so you’ll be a strong advocate of these attributes.  You’ll be adaptable and diplomatic, and with an empathetic skills set to mentor and manage junior members of the team.
