About the job

We’re looking for a Project Manager to manage the Design to Artwork Process for a major client, a British multinational consumer goods company.

As a key contact for the client, the Project Manager will be managing all aspects of their Design to Print process ensuring client service excellence is met, providing regular status updates and ensuring that all tasks are completed in a timely manner, monitoring timelines from a project and individual artwork level.

Key responsibilities:
You’ll be responsible for the delivery of specific client projects (i.e. packaging projects), planning projects, managing artwork to agreed timeframes and delivering work within the client budget. Ensuring that projects remain within the agreed parameters of the brief and any agreed SLA.
You will consult with on-site personnel and/or the Client during the artwork development and pre-press execution.
Attend any pre-production meetings (or other meetings), when feasible, per on-site personnel’s / Sales request or request of the Client.
You’ll attend kick-off calls alongside the Print Production Manager, as the studio representative.
Establish a good and professional working relationship with the Client, design firm(s) and printers.

Communicate artwork issues with the Client/On-Site Personnel /Sales/Printer.

About you…
You’ll ideally come from a production/packaging background due to the nature of the work, but if not then you’ll have a creative design background with good project management skills, and you can pick up the systems and processes when you join the company - so you’ll either be an Account Manager, Junior Project Manager or Senior Project Coordinator.
Great communication skills are essential as you’ll be building and maintaining the relationships across all areas that are essential to your success in this role such as liaising with the Client, the Production Project Managers, the Local Markets and PPM on a daily basis to get answers to solve any problems you’re facing.
