Project Manager

We need you

We are seeking an exceptional and driven Project Manager to join our Client Service team to help us deliver world-class service and sector-leading digital products to our portfolio of global clients. Based in our thriving Learning Lab in Cape Town, you will play a critical role in the business, drawing on your sector-leading project and people management skills to manage exciting digital learning projects. You will be expected to effectively coordinate activities across a multi-disciplinary team of instructional designers, software developers, production specialists and customer relationship managers.

To succeed in this role, you should have at least 2-4 years proven experience as a Project Manager in a client-facing environment. Be comfortable working in a fast-paced and, at times, ambiguous environment. You must be an exceptional communicator with a talent for building trust-based relationships with internal colleagues and clients alike. Be organised, proactive, and effective at multitasking so your projects are delivered on time and to budget. Be driven and ambitious, someone who wants to grow as we as a company grow. It would be a benefit if you had experience working in a tech heavy environment with an understanding of the software development cycle and able to speak the same language as developers.

To do

  • Be accountable for Project Delivery through the full project lifecycle. You will own key project plans, and must always have a grasp of all activities and milestones to ensure your projects are delivered flawlessly.
  • Set-up and facilitate internal and external meetings, recording key decisions, actions and risks, and presenting progress to CRMs and client partners.
  • Seamlessly coordinate activities and ensure fluid communications across a geographically spread project team, remaining solutions focused while empathetic to their distinct needs and requirements.
  • Drive knowledge management across your projects, ensuring project documentation, including timesheets, briefs and project plans are up to date.
  • Manage your time and priorities effectively across multiple projects at a time while maintaining a sharp attention to detail.
