Senior Project Manager (Marketing Implementation)

We are looking for a native English-speaker to join our project management team, based in the UK as the main client contact and working directly with our production teams in Vietnam with working hours that reflect this and the time difference. The role requires early starts to align with colleagues in Vietnam but flexibility on where you work and an earlier finish to the working day.

Do you have a background from production, advertising or branding and are used to managing high quality projects for international clients with high expectations? Are you passionate about the execution of marketing material and working in a friendly and fast-paced international environment? Are you a driver and a doer who can see everything from the big picture to the smallest detail? Organised, optimistic and outgoing? Curious, a good communicator and calm under pressure? Solution-oriented and self-driven? If you answer ‘yes’ to these questions you might just be the person we are looking for.
