Our Client are a leading Search Agency on the South Coast, who have been lucky enough to work with for 10 years! We know their fabulous team well, and would be honoured to tell you all about them, if you think you d like to work there.
A mixture of Office based and Remote, you ll get that perfect balance here.
Currently we have a space for a Creative Project Manager to join them, and whether you are Super- Duper experienced and a bit of a whiz, or whether you re newer to the industry but have a heap of passion, as long as your specialty is Creative Project Management, we re keen to chat with you.
So, let s get right to the good bit and look at the benefits of joining this Company.
Brands - these guys work with some big and exciting names from Retail & Hospitality to Funky Tech brands, Transport & Education. So, you re guaranteed to get the diversity and high-level projects you ve been looking to get your teeth stuck in to.
Personal Development - You matter here. And this we can say hand on heart, because we ve placed so many people here over the years, who have gone on to progress in to management roles and really cement themselves as key players within the Company.
Regular bespoke training sessions are run, focused on ensuring each person is invested in and is expanding on the skills that are important to them.
Location - Should you wish you go to the office for those lovely Client meetings and Buzzy Brain Storm Team Chats, you ll be pleased to know that the office is a GORGEOUS space of creativity and funky, and it s a 2 minute walk from a main train station.. literally! Oh, and you ll also be a 5 minute walk from some of the best restaurants and shopping in the City, eeek!
Wellbeing - These guys take your wellbeing seriously. In 2019, they set up a wellbeing initiative to create an environment where their employees felt they could talk openly about their mental health challenges, without the fear of being judged or worrying about whether it would affect their career prospects.
They have two fully qualified Mental Health First Aiders who have been trained by MHFA England. They have a wonderful understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing. They have the required practical skills to spot signs of mental health issues in their employees and are able to confidently offer reassurance, guidance and support to anyone suffering.
They also have a dedicated wellbeing channel on Microsoft Teams where they share blogs, advice, coping strategies, books etc on a regular basis. This ensures that mental health is kept constantly in the foreground of their thoughts and is a really effective way of reaching people who maybe don t yet feel ready to reach out for help.
