Digital Project Manager

Job description

We’re looking to fill a number of project management roles within our busy Manchester office. With opportunities available from junior to senior positions, we’re looking for deadline-focussed, proactive Digital Project Managers. Enthusiastic and motivated, you’ll become a key member of the Access team offering support both internally and externally.

We’re an IPA accredited agency and self development is encouraged at every opportunity. We support the development of new skills and welcome candidates that are constantly looking to improve their knowledge and skill set. We’re keen to find new team members passionate about knowledge sharing, mentoring and guiding others and introducing new ways of working for clients and the agency.
