DELIVERY/ PROJECT MANAGER
You get it all done – you are the glue of the agency. We are looking for a Project/Production Manager who will be responsible for all things delivery for our clients and strategic team, and beyond. This role is a Mat Leave contract, with potential to extend to a permanent role.
Working alongside the Head of Delivery, and Delivery Team, you will have total control of projects at AFFINITY. Everything from briefing and scoping, through to resource and client management to final delivery. You’ll create timelines, manage external development teams, and make sure deadlines are met. You will have experience delivering projects across all channels with your main focus being on digital, but also including TV, social, OOH and print.
This is a client-facing role. You’ll be a key part of delivering an exceptional client experience, keeping them updated on what and when to expect things as you keep delivery on timeline, budget and to an outstanding quality. With a focus on profitability, you’ll ensure estimates deliver on value for our client whilst being as efficient with resources as possible.
Innately curious and fixated on delivering real-world results, your new home will be with a group of likeminded people. Becoming a Bright Spark at AFFINITY excites you because you’re tired of working within existing paradigms and want to be part of once-in-a-lifetime builds that will bring meaningful and measurable change.

We love challenging ourselves each day, finishing mentally tired but totally satisfied we contributed to something meaningful. Go home, disconnect, play and come back for another round. Proudly independent, we are an AFR Best Places to Work as well as one of the most effectiveness awarded agencies on the planet.
So if the time is right and you’ve grown out of your old world, we can’t wait to welcome you to an inspiring new one.
