They will also partner with the account teams to inform and support the management of the financial health of the overall accounts.

The SPM will serve as the primary contact for internal team members, in charge of supporting projects from concept to enabling flawless execution. One of the most important aspects of being a PM is the ability to be the conductor of the project, and be a proactive, solution-oriented, and strategic motivator.

The SPM should have familiarity with Analytics and Data Science projects and deliverables. Experience of working with other fast-paced agencies and of being a PM on integrated projects is also a plus.

A key to the success of the team is its diversity. We have diverse backgrounds and expertise, speak many languages and bring this variety together in the work we do as a team. The SPM would have the opportunity to work with a range of global clients. There is a huge opportunity to grow professionally whilst learning from some brilliant thinkers. You’ll get exposure to clients, their business and communication challenges. We will provide you with a fulfilling, collaborative, and friendly work environment, and with a plethora of training opportunities tailored to your career goals and interests.
