Support Project Manager - Now Filled

We’re on the look­out for a project manager to deal with ongoing support for some of our ecommerce clients - these retainers range from 20 - 200 hours and are burned down on a monthly basis for incremental and continuous improvements.


We need someone with solid project management experience within a digital agency and knowledge of cloud-based ecommerce platforms. The ideal candidate is capable of managing multiple teams and sprints / work packages in parallel, for multiple clients, keeping everything to schedule and to budget whilst making sure the client is kept up-to-date at all times.

This is a full-time, permanent role based at our Cheshire office.  


What will you be expected to do? 

We have lots of clients who work with us on an ongoing basis, making continuous improvements to their ecommerce websites. We’re looking for a project manager to look after this work, covering the following:

  • Reviewing work against requirements
  • Updating JIRA, our issue management system
  • Speaking to clients on a daily basis

  • Providing regular status reports to make sure clients are kept up-to-date
  • Reporting on hours used from agreed monthly allowance
  • Ensuring sufficient time has been scheduled from a shared resource pool

What experience will you have?  

We’re looking for someone with an excellent all-round knowledge of digital design and development, strong experience of project management for support contracts and knowledge of ecommerce platforms, preferably cloud-based. You’ll have experience of working in a fast-paced environment, and be used to working with anything that can be thrown at you during the day. You’ll be passionate about delivering an outstanding service at all times. Experience of working in an Agile environment is advantageous but not essential.

  • Getting out as a team, whether it’s for a Christmas party or out for a curry

Our countryside location is fab but as there is no public transport locally, you will need to have your own car and be willing to travel to clients where required.

Salary is dependent on skills and experience.
