What We are Looking for

The Project Manager position is a role at Motionstrand that requires a high level of attention to detail and the ability to work with a variety of different people, in different roles. You will be responsible for managing multiple projects, with different industry clients, keeping a close eye on the successful delivery of each. Your time will be shared across internal departments including accounts, creative, and development. The work with internal resources starts with the sales team at the point of scoping, to ensure that there are clear and reasonable expectations for each project that are able to be executed. Additionally, this is a client-facing position where maintenance and growth of established account relationships is a primary focus to continue to ensure consistent, quality deliverables.

This role is also responsible for having a strong voice in the internal development of the Motionstrand processes around delivery. This includes communications, project tracking and reporting, deliverables, scheduling and reinforcing the Motionstrand brand through internal and client interactions.

Ideally you will enjoy a fast-paced environment filled with colleagues who are equally driven by their commitment to delivering the highest quality solutions to our clients. Context switching is common; being able to set up and manage an effective schedule needs to be blended with the ability to be flexible to shifting client and team needs.

A strong ability to foster a positive work environment for Motionstrand at large is a requirement. We’re looking for a team player who is a planner, clear communicator, organizer, executor and strategist.
