Senior Project Manager

Bristol | 9-12 month maternity cover contract

As a world class strategic UX agency, Nomensa has been designing experiences that have reached millions of people, since our inception in 2001. Due to some big client wins we’re looking for an experienced Senior Project Manager to pick up on a variety of projects, spread across the charity, commercial and government sectors.

You’ll be joining the growing ranks who work across Bristol, London and Amsterdam. This role is based in Bristol, although home based whilst lockdown restrictions are in place.

Note: this is a fixed term, 9-12 month maternity cover contract.

What you’ll be doing

As a Senior Project Manager at Nomensa, you’ll be managing a number of projects at any one time; anything from accessibility audits, user testing, to web design and build projects.

We also have some very exciting build projects for you to manage, including one in the not-for-profit sector. You could be working on existing projects with UX consultants, designers or developers one minute and planning new programmes of work with account managers and strategists the next. Your role will involve project planning, scoping, resource management, chairing client meetings, and much more, doing what’s needed to ensure these projects land on time and on budget.

What we need from you

We’re experts in usability, user research, accessibility, web design, development, service design and beyond, so if you have experience of managing or coordinating these types of projects then we’d love to hear from you. We’re keen to hear from people with Agile project management experience and would also be interested in someone with experience of scrum.

If you are a certified scrum master, even better. Ideally you will have a considerable amount of digital agency PM experience, and understand the commercial nature of what it’s like to manage projects at an agency – and in a remote working landscape too, you’ll understand how to keep the people on your projects engaged and motivated.

Why you’ll love us

Throughout the pandemic we’ve thrived and been able to successfully deliver great work and grow our client portfolio too. In this role you’ll be working with a fantastic group of clients and recognisable brands in different sectors, you’ll have a range of projects to get stuck into that will challenge you and keep you interested from day one.

There is plenty of room for growth and opportunities for you to develop your skills here. Our people love working at Nomensa, we’ve got a fantastic culture and we are one of the few companies within the UK to achieve Gold Standard accreditation by Investors in People. Aside from that, our ‘Chief Happiness Officers’ are always coming up with little surprises to add to your day.
