Reporting directly to the Commercial Director, this varied project management role offers the right candidate exceptional scope to leave a real mark on a rapidly expanding small business, as well as providing an ideal springboard into a subsequent career in business consultancy.
We’re growing rapidly right now, which means there’s a long list of critical projects that need a capable pair of hands to oversee them. The list is both defined and prioritised, but the role will be, by definition, extremely diverse:
One day you may be commissioning and benchmarking proposals from various suppliers for printing solutions, the next researching a speech on a topic of pan-industry importance, and the day after mapping a current customer journey, before recommending optimisations to the same. Part Project Manager, part Executive Assistant, part Business Improvement Specialist. What is guaranteed is that the work you’ll complete will be absolutely central to our success, and provide you with an exceptionally broad experience base at an early stage in your career.
In recruiting for this role, potential and problem-solving aptitude is far more important to us than previous experience. That said, you’ll need to be confident taking an initial brief and transforming it into a specific project scope and goal, before executing a plan to meet those goals on time and within budget. You can expect to be regularly presenting to senior internal stakeholders, and gaining experience of pitching appropriately to different audiences, not just within our company. As such, the role has significant potential to be expanded further for an exceptionally talented individual. If all this wasn’t exciting enough, you’ll be working across our award-winning product set, including popular licensed products relating to brands such as Harry Potter, The Big Bang Theory, Friends and many more.
Given the criticality of excellent stakeholder relationships to this role, it is anticipated the role holder will work exclusively from our spacious Wallington office for the first month. Thereafter, an increasing amount of homeworking is likely to be possible, subject to business needs.
A comprehensive training programme will be provided by BATF ( Kickstart Gateway) and CMT Career and Training Services.
In addition to this training package, the role-holder will benefit from weekly mentoring check-ins. The single site nature of our set-up, and the size of our business, provides the opportunity for regular appraisal and real time support for any tasks the individual finds difficult:
- We’re a small enough business that we need the role-holder to succeed.
- We’re self-aware enough to know this will only occur if, in addition to the candidate’s own drive and abilities, they are supported in the best possible way.
