Senior Project Manager
New York, NY
If you want to do work that is meaningful and makes a difference, we have good news! Despite what the majority of the agency world might think, it IS possible to grow a successful creative agency that is also mission-driven. In our case, Worn is driven to help female lead companies succeed and we’re looking for a Senior Project Manager to lead creative projects with us.
Take Women.nyc for example. The Mayor’s Office of NYC hired us to brand NYC as the best place in the world for women. We concepted and executed every detail of the campaign from its name and brand to who should be a partner and how to light up Washington Square Park with projections and a rally of influential women. On a project like this, the Senior Project Manager would be the lead conductor, presenting our campaign to the Deputy Mayor and First Lady, managing all moving parts of the project in strategy, creative, and production, ensuring the project stays on time and budget and managing the relationship with our clients in government and with outside agency partners.
A project like this is very fast paced and challenging and require at least 5 years of project management experience in a creative industry to be done well. We’re a small team working on several projects at once with female-led companies, so it's crucial that our Senior Project Manager shows up from day 1 ready to lead the team.
The opportunities that comes with a Senior Project Manager role is are: You will be a leader at Worn from the first day, owning your own projects and deciding what projects we work on along with the leadership team, shaping the direction that Worn grows as one of the first 20 employees, with lots of room to shape your role as you move up, learning how to build a business with a transparent and entrepreneurial leadership team, and making a difference in the world by supporting women-led companies and watching them grow and succeed.
This is what your first year will look like:
- You’ll lead multiple creative projects, with varying deadlines, most of which will be a combination of brand strategy, packaging, and web design
- You’ll own the timeline and budget for a project, making independent decisions on how to best spend time and dollars in order to produce the best creative work possible
- You’ll be the go-to communicator with clients, building long term relationships and seeing their companies grow and succeed
- Work closely with a Senior Strategist and VP of Strategy to build brands and companies from the ground up, identifying market opportunities and the secret sauce that will make new brands successful
- Confidently present creative work to clients, which are usually either company founders or CEOs
- You’ll grow your own team and help us build a tight-knit company where we put the success of women-led companies first
Desired skills and experience:
- Direct experience as a project manager (of 5+ years) is important. You will also need an eye for design and a passion for advertising.
- You have a deep understanding of project management, client management, workflow and infrastructure and you're 1000% confident leading clients and managing multiple moving parts of a project
- You have the ability to understand, motivate and support your team. You're able to clearly communicate the goals of the client working in collaboration with the strategy and design team.
